Project X: Powder Room Moodboard

Good morning! Hope you are all keeping warm indoors on such a frigid day like today. I myself have decided to hibernate and curl up in a blanket (I am always cold, even when it's above 20 degrees in the house!) with my laptop.

Today, I get to share the moodboard I prepared for the powder room that will soon be built for Project X.  The powder room is similar in size to the one I designed earlier this year in my house - it measures 3ft X 7.5ft.  

As the primary bathroom to be used by visiting guests, this small space is a perfect opportunity to introduce drama in big sorta way.

The client requested a powder room that makes guests feel like they are at a hotel with dark and moody hues and ambient lighting.  And so, after reviewing 2 design options, I'm happy to say that they chose this puppy:

Let me explain a bit further.  The back wall holding the vanity will be outfitted with a small three dimensional hexagon tile, from floor to ceiling.  This tile is so special - it is pewter but the edges of each tile have a copper sheen.  The custom floating vanity will be made of stone with faceted textures and a linear drain.  The faucet will be sensor-based, something I have rarely (if ever) seen in a home.  The mirror will most likely be store bought, but we will add strips of LED lights behind, to provide ambient lighting.  Here's an example of what I mean:

On the other walls, we will have a combination of dark grasscloth for the upper portion and long concrete-like tiles for the bottom half. Like the vanity, the toilet will also be suspended on the wall to make the room feel uncluttered. The floor will be polished concrete, as the rest of the main floor of the house. And finally, I will put in some accessories with hints of copper to bring out the copper tones from the hex tile. The artwork will most likely be black & white photography, to continue with the overall hotel feel of the space.

It's going to be quite a while before you get to see the end result, but I will post pics of the progress as the construction continues. I'll keep you posted!
