Cozy Country/Rustic Bathroom by Elina Katsioula-Beall
NKBA's 2013 Design Competition Winner: Powder Room - 1st Place.
A powder room fashioned to replicate the client's childhood memories of South Africa captures the essence of that country with unconventional elements such as wood-lined walls, leather-look vanity, chiseled-limestone counter, slate flagstone flooring and natural branches. The room becomes a mini museum with artful niches highlighting a large wood sculpture of an elongated African man, a shorter friend and other artifacts. The framing plan accommodates a hidden tank for the wall-hung toilet, four narrow medicine cabinets, plus lighting strips alongside the mirror. The curved-front vanity covered with faux leather, plus a clever use of branches as functional pieces to hold towels, capture the earthiness of the African landscape.
