A play of opposites in this powder room sets the texture of pebbles against the smoothness of polished stone
Enclosed and most often without windows, the powder room offers designers a chance to break with a home's overall decor for a more individual, even playful air.
This modest space has been renovated by Jennifer Corredor of J Design Group as part of a condominium refurbishment. Several elements combine to give this central, yet almost concealed powder room a one-off aesthetic, says Corredor.
"To complement the existing wave-shaped wall I introduced a textured pebble tile surface, with a contrasting smooth marble feature wall. I set the vein of the stone two ways for interest.
"The focus of the room, however, is the sink. This is carved from a single, solid marble slab imported from Italy, and weighs over 360kg."
The wider decor combines the classic and modern and this theme is echoed here.
"An ornate mirror adds a touch of the exotic, while the sculptural toilet, also circular, offers a more minimalist, high-tech presence.
"The curved wall and pristine white marble floors draw you into the space," says Corredor.
