Buena Vista House Powder Room

This new hillside home above the Castro in San Francisco was designed to act as a filter from the peaceful tress-lined street through to the panoramic view of the city and bay. A carefully developed rhythm structures the building, directing the visitor through the home with mounting drama. Each room opens to the next, then out through custom mahogany doors to the decks and view. Custom vine-like wrought-iron railing provide a counterpoint to the pure geometry of the rooms. Featured: California Home & Design magazine.

Emphasis refers to the focal point and the supportive furnishings that create the center of attention. This is often a feature such as a view, fireplace, or architectural feature. The sink and mirror are the emphasis in this room.

As soon as you take a look at the picture of this bathroom, the sink stands out the most. Your eye is lead to it because of the bold edges, dramatic color, and unique shape.

T*he point of emphasis in the bathroom is the sink *As its the biggest thing in the room it is also the most color oriented. and it takes up a lot of space in the room.

Design Principle 3. Emphasis - Single Element The single element of emphasis in this bathroom is the sink structure. The sink draws your eye to it because of the bold gold and brown color, the shape and size of the element in the room. The shape provides movement in the space and the colors complement the wall color behind it. In this small area, the sink dominates the space.
