The attention to detail lavished on this often small space is all about pampering and luxury. This rather grand powder room forms part of a wholehouse remodel by interior designer Iris Dankner. The owners had asked for a glamorous aesthetic throughout the interior and this extends to the powder room, says Dankner. “I designed a coffered ceiling to set the scene and introduced the textural appeal of Venetian plaster on the wall above a dado rail. The rail itself is made of tiny onyx tiles, which are repeated in larger format on the lower wall. “The floor is also finished in onyx, in the same small tile format as the dado rail.” Dankner chose a mirrored console for the vanity base, which supports a freestanding onyx bowl. An antique chandelier in Venetian glass and a mirror with an embellished frame contribute to the glamour and sense of private luxury. save | share Search 38914 at Facing page: Golden onyx tiles, albeit in a variety of formats, give this opulent powder room a serene air.
