Each month a popular Atlanta exhibition center opens its doors as a marketplace for buyers and sellers. Aisle after aisle you can find beautiful antique furniture and jewelry, among other collectibles. I invited a neighbor to accompany me during a recent visit where I was shopping for furniture to use in our powder room. Our powder bath, much like others in our subdivision, has builder's grade vanities which many homeowners never get around to changing.
By her facial expression, I could tell she had an "Aha!" moment when I shared with her my plans to retrofit a piece for a vanity. Prior to this conversation, all she saw was dressers, consoles and buffets. Then through my eyes she saw endless furniture options for my new powder bath. What do you see?
An understated whitewashed wood side table effectively plays a supporting role to this highly glamorized jewel box bath. Its slender legs help to maintain a feeling of openness, even in tight quarters.
Mirrored walls are unapologetically interrupted by a sculptural, fluted-front vanity. Almost mistaken for a luxurious wetbar, this piece is sure to be a conversation piece and an excuse to linger longer in the loo.
Sometimes simplicity is enough to make a bold statement. This straight-edged vanity complete with low profiling doors and a subtle sheen provides an equally distributed combination of beauty and function.
