Tiny but tricked-out: Inside jewel-box powder rooms
By Alyssa Ford
‘Polished yet eclectic’
Designer: Beth Dotolo
For this Dallas home, interior designer Beth Dotolo had a vision for a “polished yet eclectic” powder room. The homeowners, who operate a chic, boutique furnishings store, already owned the silver-beaded mirror and the small, two-drawer bureau. But Dotolo retrofitted the bureau into a one-of-a-kind sink vanity and custom-designed the polished-nickel starburst drawer-pulls.
Other touches include Carrera marble floor tiles; modern, wall-mounted tap fixtures; elegant,Barbara Barry-designed torch sconces; and bold-patterned damask wallpaper.
“If you use a large repeat-patterned paper in a small space, it makes the room feel large and continuous,” Dotolo says.
