Inspired by Schumacher’s Queen of Spain wallpaper, which was introduced in 1963 when it was featured in an iconic black-and-white photo of Mick Jagger, Castle Design created a hip-traditional powder room for their clients. The designer created a scheme that blended traditional elements found in the home with modern details to create a space fit for the trendsetting wallcovering the homeowners requested. Brass elements, such as the angular sconces and delicate framed mirror, pop against the organically patterned wallpaper. The Kohler Purist faucet is a modern twist on a vintage cross-handle design. The room’s petite footprint of only four feet was a challenge, but the designer embraced the small square footage by designing tailored elements like the custom-made floating vanity to fit perfectly into the floor plan. The homeowners have three young children, so functionality was also key. Castle Design incorporated a vanity backsplash and solid wood chair rail with panel molding to ensure durability and easy cleanup. This small space is now elevated with style and a little rockstar swagger.
Why the judges love it: We love the rockstar approach the designer brought to the space. The wainscoting is beautiful. They took a chance with the wallpaper and it worked!
