The powder room wall was covered in washed river rock, that was set in a layer of grout. The mirror extended out from the wall to have back-lighting installed to wash the river rock.

Looks great but I fear water damage to the wood. Did he use a special sealer? Thanks for answers :)

I think it has to be sealed often, about once a year

If you are asking about the material of the accent wall, the architect wrote this nice detail description:

"The powder room wall was covered in washed river rock, that was set in a layer of grout. The mirror extended out from the wall to have back-lighting installed to wash the river rock."

where is this sink from? Made of? Price?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

I really like how this bathroom hints at nature. The bowl has that clayware feel to it. The wall looks like rocks. The colors are drawn from the earth. I think that the storage features beneath the sink could've been more earthy (wicker instead of metal, perhaps) but I do like the function of that space.
Pebble tile always presents a challenge because it needs to have so much grout used with it. The wall in this bath uses a chocolate-y grout that's nearly the color of the pebble tile itself. The result is a wall that's almost pure texture and the affect is fantastic. What do you think? Do you have a grout color triumph or dilemma you'd like to share?
Shawn Gauthier added this to Unexpected Style for Your Wall
Stone. Create a natural accent wall in your bathroom with a stone application. In this example, the designer used washed river rock set in a layer of grout to capture the look of an outdoor sanctuary.
