POWDER ROOM, VANCOUVER
Design Consultant: Carol Faan Interiors, Vancouver, BC
This ‘jewel-box’ Powder Room is one of the many highlights of this stunning residence. Dramatic Églomisé panels of flowering trees and small colourful birds on a mottled dark background are framed by bevelled glass borders hand-painted with an ornate leaf pattern and gilded in 24k gold leaf.
Adding to the sense of being in a fairy-tale, Gorman Studios hand-painted and gilded on the front of the Églomisé glass an ornate Chippendale inspired scroll frame around the vanity mirror. In combination with the luxurious marble flooring and ebony finished woodwork, the effect is transportive.
