Residential Design

Our Klondyke project is home to our Principal designer Robyn Manning. As fellow industry friends would agree, as a designer there is no better place to experiment and take risks than in your own home. Robyn treated her two bathrooms as a laboratory for color and texture, embracing her self-described “Groovy Grandma” aesthetic. The intention was to marry the classic bones of her century home with modern functionality and a whole lotta fun.

The powder room is a small space and plays double-duty as a laundry room. The Schumacher wallpaper kicked off the design, acting as the perfect inspiration for the color story and mood. A custom wall-hung sink was fabricated locally and helped to open up the space and create more room for the appliances to be accessed. The new LG washer and dryer were not only smaller in square footage than the original appliances but also had a larger drum for functionality. This allowed for new vertical storage on top of the dryer and eliminated any baskets from having to live on the floor. New beadboard paneling adds historical character and ties into the beadboard on her adjacent kitchen ceiling. 

In the main bathroom, a major overhaul was long overdue. Prior to this renovation there was no bathtub and no storage in this space. Functioning for 5 years with just a small corner shower and a pedestal sink had run its course and a complete revamp was needed. 

The design started with a new modernized corner tub, and relocating the vanity to a wall previously allocated for open shelving. The blue and white checker pattern references classic design but feels fresh in its linear application. The ⅔ height installation of the tile helps keeps the space from feeling too clinical while feeling more indicative of what you’d see around a classic clawfoot tub. The column-style plumbing fixtures in classic chrome feel both old and new. Personal touches were added with the hand-painted tiles over the toilet in lieu of art (Momentos from an art class in Portugal!) and a remnant of Calacatta Viola reserved from the main bar of Robyn’s first major restaurant project.
