"In this powder room I wanted to create a little jewel," says designer Peter Robbin of the 556-foot bath in his own home. To create a textural enclosure off the foyer, he covered the walls with black gros-point fabric beneath a ceiling bedecked with silver tea-paper squares. To lend elegance to the vanity, Robbin had an artist paint the top of a demilune console with a faux zebra-wood finish. "The table was nice in form but it was not an antique, so it adapted well, refinished, as a sculptural base." The polished chrome hardware and undermounted sink provide a nice contrast to the wood tones. A glass-bead pendant purchased by Robbin was an inexpensive yet sparkly lighting solution to illuminate the silver ceiling.
