Swarovski without crystals
When asked by a favourite client to create a "WOW" factor when walking into the main floor powder rooms, Tracy, Jennifer and I began the adventure of collecting items to present a luxurious design that our client would love and which reflected her wishes. We quickly turned our attention to fixtures, decorative paint, wallpaper and lighting and named the powder rooms to guide us in developing the ambiance. What a glorious exercise to stimulate our senses!!!!!
We are now totally in love with wall coverings, especially by Swarovski with crystal which we chose as the inspiration. Working with these masterpieces we truly enjoyed choosing every detail of the design to look inviting and create the perfect mood.
Swarovski with crystals
When choosing the wall coverings we considered the proportions of the space and the amount of natural light. Scale is everything in design so we chose a medium scale pattern which repeated several times before it meets the base. Adding crown moldings, base boards and window sills will give a clean line and juxtapose well against the extravagant wall covering. The custom built cabinet and mirror will have simple lines and a decorative paint finish to complement the dramatic marble top and outrageous faucets from www.aquabrass.com. The wall sconces were custom ordered and bathroom accessories are being hand-coloured and embellished in New York.
We had recently attended a wall covering seminar at Benjamin Moore organised by Realtor Lori Rowe www.lorirowe.com. Lori presents seminars to enhance the buying experience for her clients and to assist in the sell through of properties. Lori's design talent enhances her ability to visualise the potential of the home.
We were fortunate to meet presenter Khuram Shazad from Shazcor www.shazcor.com.
Khuram is a Wallcovering Specialist and Master Painter with a very impressive international resume. Presently, he is guiding us through the selection and application of magnificent Wallcovering and paint finishes, and it is truly a delight to have such a talented specialist in Vancouver.
The timing couldn't have been better as our clients have been requesting more Wallcoverings and we were just embarking on several new design projects.
Now, we are hoping our client will let us photograph the bathrooms so we may present them in all their glory.
