Part of being an interior designer is listening to your clients’ ideas and concerns, only to come back with a concept that is even better than their best expectations. The homeowners of this bathroom project knew that they wanted their space to be high contrast with brass accents, but they also were concerned about the design being timeless. “Brass, especially, is super popular right now,” Corine Maggio of CM Natural Designs said, “So I wanted to make sure we added it without making it feel too trendy.”

Corine gave the bathroom a timeless look by incorporating design elements that are reminiscent of the jazz age. By switching out the vanity for one that was shorter in length, she was able to provide room for a Restoration Hardware standing bathroom cabinet with a vintage turn-of-the-century look. The pendants from Arteriors and antique clock also drive home this concept.

To bring in the contrast that the clients asked for Corine found industrial black framed showers doors by Coastal Shower Doors, so popular that they are often “requested by a lot of new clients.” The old vanity had tiled countertops that weren’t just difficult to clean, because of the grout, but also didn’t speak to the homeowners’ fun, modern and sophisticated style. “The vanity is prefabricated from Virtu but we gave it a more customized look by changing out the faucets with ones from Moen,” the designer shared. The end result was so successful with the homeowners that they later hired Corine to redesign their kitche: “They had been planning on only living there in the short term, but then they loved their bathroom so much that they decided to stay.”
