This New West bathroom drew inspiration from a pretty dessert.
Emma Kelly and Francesca Albertazzi, co-founders of Rudy Winston Design, encourage their clients to think outside the box when it comes to inspiration—and the owners of this home in New Westminster, B.C., definitely understood the assignment. “Emma and I were absolutely overjoyed when the client presented us with a picture of a beautiful cake,” says Albertazzi.
Kelly and Albertazzi both adore wallpaper—they say it brings something to a space that no other element can bring. But they also emphasize the importance of balance: modern fixtures keep the space from looking stuck in a certain era.
The team at Rudy Winston worked with the client’s company, Rembrandt Renovations, to translate the layered vanilla cake—decorated with fresh flowers—into a powder room. They began with a floral Designers Guild wallpaper, and drew the green colour from that wallcovering into the bathroom cabinetry. “We brought in other elements that latched onto the colours and shapes in the wallpaper,” explains Albertazzi. A brushed gold mirror and gold wall sconces add clean lines and a contemporary touch to the whimsical space.
