Design the Hall-WayMediterranean Powder Room, Denver
This powder room was added on in a space that was previously a walk-in closet in a guest bedroom. The floor is pebble laid on a 12x12 mesh backing. The walls are slate with bronze and glass accents.
I found the mirror at an antique mart for about twenty dollars. It was the perfect shape with the vessel sink.
The photos on the wall are all copies of originals that have been preserved in the family files, carefully, since the 1800's. I had them scanned and printed, so we didn't use the originals. The frames were all collected from Hobby Lobby! You'd never know it! This powder bath gets people talking!
What Houzz contributors are saying:
5. Ancestral PhotosBefore deciding the fate of his family's estate, King stands before a wall filled with his ancestors' photos, showing a mix of Caucasian missionaries and settlers with their indigenous Hawaiian spouses and the haole (foreigner) kin who make up King's extended family. Perhaps the visual reminder of his ancestors makes King remember an important thing about legacy and inheritance: One must always try to do the right thing, which oftentimes is not the most profitable thing.

We forget that photos look good in every room in the house, even bathrooms. If you can't fill up two walls with personal photos, a small arrangement of frames will add a classic, masculine factor. The photos here blend perfectly with the antique mirror, gold trim along the ceiling and woven basket of towels.
