Aiming "to give the space a sporty edge," designer Kathryn Chaplow says she painted the walls of this powder room a fiery orange. Part of a modern redo of a 1980s Victorian-style house for a single-businessman client, the 757-foot guest bathroom was created adjacent to a laundry room and a rear entry. A square-trough, white ceramic sink rests atop a custom-designed metal base with a black powder-coated finish. "The sink and stand create a sculptural effect while remaining utilitarian," Chaplow adds. Transitional-style chrome fixtures complete the look. A pair of modern pendants offer flattering illumination with a subtle glow bouncing off the orange walls. The mirror is set in a stock wood frame painted to match the metal base supporting the sink. The flooring (not shown) is quartzite slate.
