Stylish Space

A custom Ambrosia Maple floating vanity with a clear finish adds warmth to the modern guest bathroom with black and white accents and striped plank tile floor.

Unique Look

The Ambrosia Maple for the custom vanity was purchased locally. The unique pattern in the wood comes from the Ambrosia beetle, which carries a fungus that causes the gray staining of the wood.

Distressed Sconces

Two distressed one-light black and wood wall sconces with clear seeded glass flank each side of the metal and mango wood industrial-style mirror above the guest bathroom vanity.

Open Storage

The custom Ambrosia Maple floating vanity includes open storage for folded hand and bath towels. A wire basket keeps smaller wash clothes grouped together.

Hang It Up

A vibrant brushed nickel towel ring on the wall by the vanity has a unique angular shape and transitional style.

Fun Flooring

The tile floor has black and very light gray stripes that add a punch of pattern to the guest bathroom. "I wanted to emphasize the width of the space,” says interior designer Elizabeth Demos.

Contemporary Sink

The custom floating vanity includes a large rectangular vessel-style sink with a wide, deep basin and rounded edges.

Sleek Faucet

The sink's vibrant brushed nickel faucet has a sleek look with two oval handles that offer comfortable and easy operation.

Hidden Storage

A routed groove in the wood of the custom vanity creates a track that allows the center flat panel door to slide left and right. This design keeps plumbing and items like cleaning supplies and extra toilet tissue hidden behind the door when positioned in the middle.

Woven Waste Basket

The natural tones of the vintage woven waste basket complements the guest bathroom’s custom Ambrosia Maple floating vanity.

Remote With Touchscreen

A magnetic remote with touchscreen above allows for easy operation of the integrated features in the bathroom's premium toilet. The vibrant brushed nickel toilet tissue holder coordinates with the other finishes and fixtures in this guest bathroom.

Top-of-the-Line Toilet

The guest bathroom's intelligent one-piece elongated dual-flush white toilet includes a heated seat and integrated bidet features.

Bath and Shower Duo

The shower and bath combination includes a cast iron tub in white with right hand drain, shower wall kit and an environmentally-friendly, 100 percent cotton shower curtain that adds subtle pattern to the bath area. A 24-inch vibrant brushed nickel towel bar by the tub provides a place to air dry towels after a bath or shower.

Fluid Design Lines

The showerhead and rest of the vibrant brushed contemporary nickel shower and bath trim components feature fluid design lines for easy cleaning.

Safety Feature

The sleek bath and shower trim includes a high-temperature limit stop that can be preset to a comfortable maximum temperature to eliminate scalding.

Vintage Art

Framed vintage string art decorates the guest bathroom wall and adds a nice contrast for the more modern design details in the space.

Winning Color Combo

A dark ceiling adds a bit of drama, provides contrast for the lighter walls and coordinates with the guest bathroom's striped plank tile floor with a weathered, lived-in look.

Welcome the Fresh Air

A casement window over the toilet gives a balance of light to the guest bathroom, and allows fresh air inside during the temperate part of the year.

Floors with Contrast

The striped plank tile floor next to the prefinished and distressed mountain oak floor is an example of the contrasts used to give this renovated Vermont home character and personality.

Convenient Linen Closet

This view of the guest bathroom and adjacent bedroom shows one door of the double doors to the shallow linen closet open.

Maximizing Storage

The shallow linen closet takes advantage of all available space. "We did our best to maximize storage vertically by taking those shelves all the way up," says interior designer Elizabeth Demos.

Baskets and Bins

Wire baskets and woven bins on the linen closet shelves keep smaller items easily accessible and stored together.

Down the Hallway

This look at the guest bathroom and adjoining guest bedroom highlights the easy connection between the two spaces designed for relaxing and rejuvenation.
