Yoko Barsky, Deco Design Studio, LLC
When clients approached her to redesign the windowless half-bath just off the foyer in their newly constructed DC condo, Yoko Barsky of Deco Design Studio decided to create a powder room with punch—one that would stand out even without the aid of natural light. She began by installing LED lights that gradually increase in brightness to reveal shiny, black-stone countertops, black-stained cabinetry and matte porcelain mosaic-tile walls in gradations of grey. A white egg-shaped basin offers contrast in color and form; the faucet projects from the custom mirror to save countertop space.
