Tiny Jewel

A mundane powder room becomes a modernist gem


A diminutive powder room was elevated to minimalist oasis in the hands of designer Therese Baron Gurney, who collaborated with Julia Walter of Boffi Georgetown on the Chevy Chase project. The space is anchored by an accent wall of textured penny tile; an asymmetrical mirror and an off-center Bocci pendant hang above a cylindrical, freestanding sink basin and stand made of poured resin.

The other walls are clad in an embossed Maharam wall covering. “Subtle textures and a palette of serene blue, pure white and metallic gray evoke an ethereal atmosphere,” Baron Gurney says. Wide-plank, white-oak flooring runs parallel to the accent wall and recessed lighting washes the surfaces, making the small space feel more expansive.
