This all white and very straightforward bath is simple and totally functional. The washstand with its marble top works well in the space, the sconce lights take away shadows, a magnifying mirror is always helpful, and a medicine cabinet corrals all of ones daily needs. The natural light is a benefit but the window is fitted with a simple roller shade. The bead board and French inspired fitting signify a traditional bath and the white paint makes the space nice but bland.

New York architect, Thierry Despont, is a classicist with a twist. In his own bath he selected aggressive black/gray and white marble for texture and pattern. The flat black counter creates a calm oasis in the midst of the active material on the wall. Carefully chosen accessories, neatly corralled on trays, keep the space tidy and functional. A magnifying mirror a must, so is a clock and an attractive tissue holder. The unusual lights and appropriate Deco Astoria lavatory faucet complete is elegant and very decorative space.

For those of you who have been following my Friday blogs, this highly decorative bath is an unusual post. I like this very personal statement by the designer and client who were not afraid of pattern or color. The active design of the wallpaper (Zuber 1960’s) is in contrast to the simplicity of the old dark wood  herringbone floor and low wood wainscot painted an Adamesque blue.  Small personal objects adorn the beautiful marble fireplace mantle and the chair indicates a bath where visiting and conversation are encouraged.
