Here's a better look at the Schonbek Chandelier, which is my favorite part of the room!
Paint color- Benj. Moore- Sweatshirt Grey

RE: Finished Powder Room

Gorgeous! I love it all! First I've seen the Rohl with the crystal handles. Kind of wish I'd gone that route. It's all studding and so elegant. I have a Schoenbek in my powder room too, fun!

Beautiful!!- can we please see the floor?

Calacutta Marble herring bone floor

RE: Finished Powder Room

Absolutely stunning! I love everything. The combination of marble, blue gray paint and silver is so lovely and luxurious.

RE: Finished Powder Room

Another floor view~


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Ooooh- that floor is so beautiful! (as is your entire room!) I see where you noted it is a cutom floor- is it a mesh backed mosaic or did someone hand cut and lay each of those pieces? Gorgeous!

RE: Finished Powder Room

It looks terrific! :)

RE: Finished Powder Room

Thanks all!
Sparklebread~ They make that herring bone floor in different marbles with a mesh back, but it didn't come in Calacutta marble. I really wanted the floor to match the counter marble, so the store I dealt with asked the stone supplier to cut Calacutta for me and put it on mesh. It took about 6 - 8 weeks and a custom fee.

RE: Finished Powder Room

That floor is incredible. Nice work!


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

It's beautiful! Great choices.


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Very beautiful and elegant! Your other bathroom is beautiful as well! Congrats and thanks for sharing!


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Beautiful, I like how the floor has the solid trimmed tile around the herringbone, very classic looking. Your counter stone is very nice!

Well done!

RE: Finished Powder Room

Your herringbone floor is beautiful! I am currently in a remodel due to water damage, and having carrara marble herringbone installed in a powder room. there's no way I could afford to add the beautiful marble baseboard too :( I'm stretching it as it is. I'm excited after seeing yours, and can't wait to see it grouted. All I know is for the price I better love it. But if its half as pretty as yours, I know I will!!

RE: Finished Powder Room

So elegant! Thank you.

RE: Finished Powder Room

It's stunning and elegant. The Shonbek is the perfect finishing touch for all of the other beautiful choices you made. In this lovely room, the name of your wall paint, Sweatshirt Grey, strikes me as funny!


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

I thought the same thing about the paint color! The names they come up with sometimes are very funny. The paint choices in my dining room were called (SW) camel back and cardboard lol. The contractor said Well it sounds like it would be cheap! :)

But that is a beautiful shade of gray


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Just stunning! Thanks so much for sharing. It is tough to photograph such small spaces, but we love seeing it!

Treasuretheday and Mountaineergirl-

Funny you should mention the paint color name. I knew I wanted a gray color, but I had no idea which one would look good. I heard a decorator on a TV show say that his new favorite "go to" color was Sweatshirt Grey. I bought it sight unseen. I figured it wouldn't be such a huge job to repaint if I hated it, and I ended up loving it!

RE: Finished Powder Room

Perfection--I am IN LOVE with that floor!


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Great looking bathroom. What grout colour / manufacturer is on your floor?


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

the floor is really stunning!


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

My jaw is just dropping looking at that floor - oh my, it is to die for!!

Could you share your source? Was it mind blowingly expensive if you don't mind me asking?


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

It's GORGEOUS!!


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Lovely floor, and the toilet looks so nice with it.


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Your powder room is stunning! Can you tell me how high your ceiling is? I'm thinking of a chandelier, but don't know if my ceiling is high enough. Thanks

RE: Finished Powder Room

Hobokenkitchen- I ordered the tile floor from Meditteranean Tile on Rt. 46 in Fairfield, NJ. It was a custom order because the tile did not come in Calacatta marble, so they cut it especially for me. That herringbone style did come standard in other marbles.
The herringbone cost around $1300 + the border tile and baseboard tile.

Wolfgang- the grout is Keracol unsanded- white

Kellysar- my ceiling is only 8ft.


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Thanks for the compliments on the floor! I was very nervous about doing a custom order. I guess it paid off!


 o
RE: Finished Powder Room

Oh it definitely paid off!! That's outside our budget for our large guest bathroom, but if it weren't I would shamelessly copy that floor - it is just so stunning!! One of my favorite tile uses I've seen.
