Reclaimed Contemporary LORI CARROLL Lori Carroll & Associates, Tucson, AZ Lori Carroll, of Lori Carroll & Associates, was tasked with finding a way of incorporating lumber salvaged from the homeowner's family homestead in the Midwest into this Tucson, AZ powder room. Carroll went into the project with an aware- ness that such a large amount of reclaimed wood "might have an overwhelming effect on the space," so she focused on creating a design that seamlessly blended the rustic influence of the wood with the contemporary atmosphere of the rest of the home. After going through a lead paint remediation process, the wood was hand-sawed and assembled into a horizontal pattern to create two eye-catching focal walls. Elements such as bronze metal accent tiles, a walnut floating vanity with a sculptural white porcelain sink and a wall-hung toilet help the space to maintain a sleek, contemporary flavor. Dark & Dramatic PARIS KOSTOPOULOS and TINA PSOINOS Paris K Design, New York, NY Designers Paris Kostopoulos and Tina Psoinos of Paris K Design are of the opinion that "a powder room must exude an aura of mystery and have an almost theatrical presence," and the design they created for this two-apartment conversion is no exception. The back wall sparkles with custom hand- made Italian tile sourced from Alchemy Tile, complemented by plumbing fittings and accesso- ries from California Faucets in a contemporary satin gold. A wall-hung Duravit toilet and freestanding Badeloft column sink make efficient use of the available space and provide a bright, curvy and contemporary contrast to the vividly colored tiles. LED lighting from Modern Forms and Edge Lighting is hidden in unexpected places, such as behind the vanity mirror, lending an extra touch of theatrical flair to the dra- matic space.
