Classic Traditional Bathroom by Elina Katsioula-Beall
NKBA's 2012 Design Competition Winner: Powder Room - First Place.
Fashioned around a painting of bathing women at the lake shore, this powder room speaks to a former time and century past. The watery theme sets an appropriate tone for the pale turquoise and celadon green palette. Unifying components include a turn-of-the-century bronze statue of a dragonfly dancer, authentic Art Nouveau Swiss sconces and curved flowing lines in the hand-rail and mirror.
This seemingly sylvan setting playfully and intelligently incorporates the required functional aspects of this powder room. The handrail serves multiple functions; as a location for the toilet paper, a waste basket and taking on the role of a grab-bar to accommodate handicap access standards. The long sink occupies the wall opposite the commode with the ornate mirror standing guard above it. Beneath the countertop, two movable vanity cabinets provide storage, but also double as make-up seats. In all, this small space makes the most of its components, delivering much more than what first meets the eye and a space of privacy and elegant comfort.
