As part of an extensive renovation of a 100-year-old home in Chicago's historic Andersonville neighborhood, this bathroom was inspired by reclaimed Arts and Crafts style. Borrowing room from a closet/pantry, architects from Greene & Proppe Design expanded the width of the 5-1/2-foot-long room from 30 inches to 6 feet, "making a more hospitable powder room with a better flow from the kitchen," says designer Paula Flanagan. A new window graces the space with light. A hammered-copper sink is set into a pigmented concrete countertop that rests on a custom wood table base. The cupboard matches nearby kitchen cabinetry for continuity. Mottled wall covering with the texture of suede is topped by crown molding; above, a painted border visually heightens the space.
