Project Description

Mimi and Jerome wanted to bring in a sense of nature into their North Austin powder room. They had already selected a glass vessel sink and knew they wanted a wood finish on the custom vanity cabinet. What to do next?

Our inspiration came from an amazing glass brick-style mosaic tile for the vanity-to-ceiling backsplash. Featuring all of the blues, greens, browns, and golds you see outdoors, the hand-cut tile feels like it was created by Mother Nature. Combining the colorful tile with a subtle soapstone countertop gives the vanity a nice contrast between matte finishes and shiny.

Mimi found the perfect modern mirror in this teak starburst stunner.
