Powder Rooms – KBDA 2017 Silver Winner
Modern Warm Up
Lori Carroll and Guillermo Bazua, Lori Carroll & Associates, Tucson, AZ
This industrial and concrete powder room is the statement child of Lori Carroll and Guillermo Bazua of Lori Carroll & Associates in Tucson, AZ. The clients wanted a bold abstract room, but without the typical provocative colors and flashy elements. Faced with an unusual layout, Carroll and Bazua created a unique design with an urban loft feel, with many custom-built pieces to fit the 72-sq.-ft. space.
A custom floating vanity with Horizontal Grain LoLo and open shelving underneath in a neutral tone stands out against the slanted slab charcoal tiled walls. An oval Lacava porcelain vessel sink sits on the vanity, with a Hansgrohe Puravida lavatory faucet situated behind it. Bocci 14 single pendant lights and Motiv accessories from Ginger add a light touch.
The curved vanity wall wraps around to create a toilet alcove with walls finished in burnished metal sheets. Mounted in the alcove is the Duravit Puravida wall-hung toilet.
The other walls have a Hopper Custom Raked Plaster finish. The flooring is Imola Koshi Dark Grey in 12″x24″ tiles, keeping with the edgy dark nature of the room.
