The makeover started with one of the hottest trends in bathroom design today—a furniture-style vanity. The curvaceous style of the mahogany vanity is indigenous of the island Colonial look. The rich antique hardware mimics the midnight-black granite countertop.
The unique wall sconces over the vanity are reminiscent of an African safari. The mirror also has a safari feel, with the black lacquer frame painted in a sophisticated jungle animal motif.
The once-plain white sink has been custom painted to match the shower curtain. The oil-rubbed bronze faucets also lend to the island Colonial design. The faucet handles are done in a unique teardrop design.
The green and brown palette on the shower curtain and in the handpainted sink create an earthy feel. No details were overlooked when designing this room—even the shower-curtain rings are handpainted with a special tortoise-shell pattern.
The focal point of the room is the multi-textured wall treatment. On the feature wall is Italian porcelain, pebble tile to give the space a tropical beach feel. The other walls have a textured vinyl wallpaper made to emulate grass cloth and bamboo. The vinyl wallpaper is very easy to clean and holds up well to high moisture.
