Rising from the Ashes Much like a mythical Phoenix – the legendary bird that rose from its own ashes, this beautiful powder room symbolizes transformation and rejuvenation. After a devastating fire that destroyed the clients’ home, some materials were saved from the embers to be metamorphosed in the reconstruction plan. Items salvaged from the ruins: tile, wall sconces and a ceiling pendant, became the inspiration for this powder room. The old Spanish Hacienda pairs well with the brick floors, and the Tumbled 1” x 1” Golden Sienna Travertine mosaics on the feature wall convey a
warm, antiquated look. The remaining walls and ceiling are finished in a textured Venetian plaster, and the decorative details in the plaster make a beautiful design statement and add sophistication to the more rustic qualities. Floating Mascarello granite countertop and dazzling mica and quartz in the stone, complement the simpler elements in the space. The hand-forged candlestick sconces and romantic ironwork ceiling fixture, bring about a colonial ambiance, perfect for this powder room renaissance.
