Show Stopping Powder Rooms by St. Louis Designers

Amy Studebaker Design

Amy Studebaker’s client wanted a “hint of glamour” in her powder room while maintaining a classic feel to match the rest of her house.

She fell in love with the hammered copper sink from Waterworks’ Normandy collection, and it inspired the design of the rest of the room.

“We loved the way light reflects off the hammered sink,” Studebaker says. “It moved us to use the mirrored tiles on the wall.”

With the sink and the Devotion Water Mirror tile in place, Studebaker elected to keep the room “mostly achromatic to emphasize the reflections of the tile and the sink.” Nickel sconces from the Suzanne Kasler Camille collection for Visual Comfort, the Universal nickel washstand from Waterworks, and the Kensington mirror from Pottery Barn finish the room.

“We wanted this space to stand out,” Studebaker says, “and creating a dramatic focal point with the mirrored tile and fabulous wallpaper did the job well—without taking up space.”

Amie Corley Interiors

Interior designer Amie Corley appreciates the power of a powder room to speak for itself—and deliver a “completely different” experience than you’d find in the rest of the house.

“I love to make powder rooms a microcosm of design, a space where you can take more design risks,” she says.

Corley worked her magic in a traditional Ladue home by mixing a selection of stylish yet whimsical elements, such as Mr. Blow wallpaper by Abnormals Anonymous, brass-and-marble sconces by Kelly Wearstler, a wall-mounted faucet by Waterworks, and a Calacatta marble sink and floor tile.

The look imparts a youthful energy but never loses sight of the home’s architectural polish and sophistication.

“I love the juxtaposition of the wild wallpaper with the modern sconces,” says Corley. “The tension between these elements is such a surprise. I love how it all came together.”
