We're loving this extra-moody look from Marrimor.
This sexy powder room was once a bleak and bland little forgotten bathroom in the basement of a home in Vancouver’s Shaughnessy neighbourhood, but Tanja Hinder and Lauren Bugliarisi of Marrimor gave it a baroque and beautiful update. The inset vanity and surrounding millwork is all custom, its curved frame setting it up to feel furniture-like in the room.
The counter was given an ogee edge, which adds to the hotel-like vibe of the space. The powder room is next door to a renovated games room that’s designed to feel like an underground speakeasyand this moody space is the perfect companion.
The team at Marrimor had the gold-plated mirror custom designed in cleaner lines to provide a quiet contrast, and paired it with polished brass faucets from Waterworks. Cole and Son’s Macchine Volanti wallpaper has metallic, sparkling moments throughout its playful zeppelin design, and the rich black paint has a blue undertoneTopsoil by General Paintand a super high sheen to highlight all of the curves in the room. We wanted it to feel really blingy, says Hinder. Everything in this house was so royal.
