Watch Your Powder Room Become A Jewel Box

NOT JUST FOR JEWELRY ANYMORE, onyx has made the transition from finger to floor. A stunning variety that adds jewel-like drama is honey onyx. Applied in a small space like a powder room, such an exotic material brings extravagance to the space without blowing the budget.

For this installation in a traditional Tenafly, New Jersey, home the clients wanted a special place where timeless elegance would be the best description of their new powder room.

It was achieved by selecting materials that complemented the Jerusalem Gold honed limestone foyer. A polished honey onyx was the perfect choice with its rich golden hues of color. Considering adjacent spaces is key to creating a cohesive design scheme, as is getting to know the client since it’s all about“personal style.”

To make the space look bigger, large-scale 12-inch-by-12-inch polished honey onyx floor tiles were laid in an offset pattern. The walls have a coordinating polished honey onyx basket weave design with red marble to add texture and movement. The amazing beauty of this basket weave is capped with a beautiful honey onyx chair rail.

The vanity top is polished honey onyx with an ogee edge and fixtures in a French bronze finish from Cifal Brass’ Brunswick Collection. Part of the Premier Collection, the Provence vanity is a handmade traditional French chest crafted of the finest alder wood solids and select cherry veneers. It features traditional scrolls and floral patterns and two upper “serviette” and “savon” drawers with cabriole legs. A fabulous handpainted wall mural reflects the spirit of the tile design and the intricate
details of the vanity.

The powder room the homeowner dreamed of now sparkles with the gleam of a finely polished gem.
