Eclectic Powder Room

The original powder room had a boring builder grade vanity and dated pink marble everywhere. I removed the marble floor and installed wood to match the rest of the house. An antique dresser was refurbished and repurposed to become a vanity. The matching mirror was modernized with a purple lacquer finish. The metallic and natural fiber wallpaper added some shimmer and funk to the space. Capiz shell pendant lights and a beautiful pebbled silky Roman shade completed the look.

Alison - does that price include your labor and your design work in addition to the actual materials? I ask because my husband and I (we live in Chicago) are starting the process of buying a home for the first time (in Chicago) and I have a feeling we'll need to renovate a bathroom or two and so I'm trying to get a sense of how much it costs to hire someone like yourself! :)

That price does include labor, but not my fees. I worked on 3 rooms concurrently in this homeowner's home, so I am not sure of exact fees for just the bathroom, but I would guess somewhere in the $2,500 range. I live in Chicago! Feel free to reach out at for more info on fees and how I work.

We removed the actual drawers on the top and permanently locked in the fronts. Our plumbing for this room was through the floor so it had to go all the way down and we retrofitted the drawers to be a U shape to accomodate the pipes.
