It’s time for another round of Double Vision – the series where my design partner, Reena Sotropa and I each present our own interior design vision for a specific room of the home. This time, we’ve both started with the same exquisite bathroom vanity console from Kallista. The Vir Stil Console Table with Towel Bar designed by Laura Kirar is a handsome solid piece of marble cut with impeccable details offering simple luxurious elegance. It’s the perfect beginning to a powder room with some serious punch.
Moroccan Marble by Reena of Corea Sotropa Interior Design
Reena imagines a powder bath with a subtle Moroccan flavour starting with a patterned marble floor from New Ravenna. The walls of this powder room are finished with tiny marble mosaic wainscoting available through Ann Sacks Tile and capped with a listello that matches the patterned floor. A glamorous rock crystal chandelier from Charles Spada via 1stDibs glitters above a Currey & Company mirror. Finishing it off are monogrammed bath linens by Leontine which add personal charm to Reena’s monochromatic, Moroccan, marble powder room.
Ikat Pattern Play by Jacqueline of Corea Sotropa Interior Design
For my little jewel of a bathroom I picture this to-die-for New Ravenna ikat mosaic tile installed floor to ceiling as a backdrop for the console sink. The floor would be laid in large scale marble tiles from Ann Sacks to match the marble sink. Wall sconces by Circa Lighting cast a pretty glow and are placed on either side of an understated beveled mirror available through Horchow. My must have powder room accessory is scented soap beautifully wrapped in decorative paper from Fringe Studio.
Now it’s time for your votes….which is your favourite bathroom? The Moroccan Marble masterpiece by Reena with it’s sumptuous finishes, subtle patterns and glamorous lighting or Jacqueline’s Ikat Pattern Play with it’s graphic punch and soft grey colour scheme? What decorative elements and finishing details would you pair with this classically modern marble vanity sink? Let us know!
My Double Vision series showcases the different (or similar) interior design concepts between me and my design partner Reena Sotropa. Even with the same design philosophy and aesthetic it amazes me how we can each look at the same element and come up with two completely unique ideas. The fresh perspective we each bring keeps the projects of our Calgary interior design firm, Corea Sotropa, interesting and inspired. We’d love to help you with your projects – please get in touch!
