Powder Room in Antique Italian Style

I simply love the way this powder room turned out- simple, easy to maintain, and beautiful. In a new construction brownstone in the city, we designed a main floor powder room with these gorgeous tiles from Chadwicks International Surfaces, located here in Libertyville. The bottom 3 feet of the wall were covered in larger limestone slabs and then capped with the beautiful bull nose and laser cut tiles. We left the edges between the slabs a little rough, so that it appeared as if the walls had been there forever. A floating limestone counter held a bronze sink. The simple roman shade's pattern, a rich Kravet silk, perfectly mimicked the pattern in the tiles on the wall. An iron mirror and iron sconces completed the powder room's main elements. The walls were done in an ivory venetian plaster treatment. Small decorative bronze tiles added interest to the limestone floor. Now we just need to find the perfect soap dispenser and hand towels to compliment the room's elegant features.
