"The powder room was a place to make bold choices in a small space," says architect Jeff Soler. A carved wood cabinet that homeowners Paul Franceschi and Allison Amon had custom made in Morocco establishes the exotic look. "We wanted to bring our travels back home," says Allison. Besides the cabinet supporting the sink, a Moroccan mirror and lantern further the oasis ambience. Borrowing space from an existing office, Soler wrapped the new 556-foot bathroom with wall-to-wall glass tile for a spa-like feel.
Rust-colored ceramic floor tiles complement the sand-colored, glass wall tiles. The wall-mounted fixtures and faucet service a ceramic bowl sink. A turquoise-painted ceiling, when up-lit by a sconce above the mirror, becomes a restful canopy.
