LACHMEE CHIN and KURT DANNWOLF
O’Donnell Dannwolf Partners & Architects, Hollywood, FL
Tasked with creating his-and-her separate powder rooms to express the owners’ individual tastes, interior designer Lachmee Chin and architect Kurt Dannwolf of O’Donnell Dannwolf Partners & Architects in Hollywood, FL, offer this masculine space. The design of this room matched the concept embraced in the residence – to be “visually exciting” and “surprising.”
The creators opted for a very classic black tuxedo style with a peek-a-boo of white. Black was used as the jumping-off point, and the challenge was mixing dark or black materials with beautiful pieces of stone to create a serene room.
A droplet-shaped sink, which offers a delicate contrast comparable to a white tuxedo shirt, acts as the focal point. A Gessi ceiling mounted faucet in chrome adds drama and bling.
Also providing a dazzling contrast are the carved out circles of silver leaf by Lithos Luxury on the black marble wall. A floor-to-ceiling mirror is frosted at the bottom to conceal the sink’s p-trap, gradually dissipating as it ascends.
On the floor, Opustone marble in Silver Egeo features a swirled design that maintains the integrity of the veins to give the foundation a seamless appearance.
Tiered lighting was carefully implemented to provide enough lighting while maintaining the required mood. Orbit sconces from Delta Light work with the downlights incorporated throughout.
