One of our latest projects involved a second floor bathroom that would be used by the family’s little boy as well as guests that were hanging out by the second floor family room fireplace or watching movies and playing games in the hang out area. We wanted the bathroom to keep in line with the rest of the home’s design, while still being a little masculine and something that would ‘grow up’ with the little boy and not be too childish right off the bat.

We settled on a color scheme of navy and grey and after finding classic grey subway tiles, a deep grey chair rail, and glossy navy accent tiles we were ready to roll! The floor is a mushroom colored 1″ x 1″ hex to warm up the space and we used a soft grey Benjamin Moore paint on the walls.  We found a Brass Blue granite remnant that tied in perfectly with our colors. The lights add a classic modern feel to the space as well.

Here is a preliminary sketch of the bathroom showing the cabinet and lighting location.

While the color is a little distorted, you can see the Brass Blue granite top as well as the installed wall tile.

our favorite grays

November 19, 2011

Grays are very popular for fall.  Here are some of our favorites this time of year…

"hauthaus approved" grays from Benjamin Moore.

Happy Thursday, everyone!

In this blog we’ll highlight one of our powder rooms… enjoy!

Inspired by our “Asiatic Prairie” design concept, this powder room showcases a very pretty Muted Prairie color scheme. The colors are all very earthy and warm which creates a very inviting and homey feel; which is great for a powder room since this is the bathroom guests will most often use.

The inspiration color chips are all Benjamin Moore:

  • 2163-50 Burlap
  • 2164-40 Serengeti Sand
  • 2170-40 Coral Spice
  • HC-119 Sherwood Green
  • HC-105 Rockport Gray

Tips on the design of this bathroom:

  • Using a framed mirror vs. a large frameless mirror provides the opportunity for a little personality and gives the powder room a more custom feel.
  • The granite we used on the counter has a lot of pattern and a lot of movement. A powder room is a perfect spot to use something a little more bold like granite, paint or wallpaper.
  • Our vanity cabinet was built to look and feel like a piece of furniture, rather than a full built in cabinet.
  • When you do have guests over, gather a bunch of fresh flowers in a fun vase, this will make the guests feel invited and special.
