LACHMEE CHIN and
O’Donnell Dannwolf Partners & Architects
Tasked with creating his-and-her separate powder rooms to ex-
press the owners’ individual tastes, interior designer Lachmee
Chin and architect Kurt Dannwolf of O’Donnell Dannwolf
Partners & Architects in Hollywood, FL, o er this masculine
space. The design of this room matched the concept embraced
in the residence – to be “visually exciting” and “surprising.”
The creators opted for a very classic black tuxedo style
with a peek-a-boo of white. Black was used as the jumping-o
point, and the challenge was mixing dark or black materials
with beautiful pieces of stone to create a serene room.
A droplet-shaped sink, which o ers a delicate contrast com-
parable to a white tuxedo shirt, acts as the focal point. A Gessi
ceiling mounted faucet in chrome adds drama and bling.
Also providing a dazzling contrast are the carved out circles
of silver leaf by Lithos Luxury on the black marble wall. A
oor-to-ceiling mirror is frosted at the bottom to conceal the
sink’s p-trap, gradually dissipating as it ascends.
On the oor, Opustone marble in Silver Egeo features a
swirled design that maintains the integrity of the veins to give
the foundation a seamless appearance.
Tiered lighting was carefully implemented to provide
enough lighting while maintaining the required mood. Orbit
