The Asheville clients got two design plans to choose from once we narrowed our vanity style down (i.e. color, white or wood) we were ready to jam out the overall plan. The clients narrowed it to a wood vanity or a colored vanity. We’ve seen the wood vanity concept, so let’s take a look at the vanity with some color.
I’m recently a fan of Benjamin Moore’s mysterious but saturated gray color called Brewster Gray. I don’t think it’s going to be an infallible color in every space but so far so good. I painted a sad little 1980s oak vanity Brewster Gray recently and it gave that little bathroom a new lease on life.
We’re keeping with a modern farmhouse aesthetic and my argument was strong for either a full shiplap wall or just wainscoting. Shiplap will add dimension and create that utilitarian look that we love so much.
A simple vanity with just a few drawers because it’s a guest bath and an open slatted shelf for towel storage should fit the 50″ wide space nicely.
The key differences between the two plans are the floor tile, sconce choices, hardware and the introduction of the blue/gray vanity. The obvious question to you is– Plan I or Plan II?
And now a quick word from our sponsors!
