Layer on the Color
Designer: Barrie Benson
Size: 40 square feet
Before: A very traditional powder bath with black-and-white tile, a built-in vanity, and white walls.
The Transformation: "We married a traditional marble pedestal sink and old, drippy, crystal sconces with a glossy peacock color. It's just south of modern—tasteful, fun, and a bit unexpected," says Barrie.
Small-Space Advice: "The color [Peacock Feathers by Benjamin Moore] got more intense with every layer. It took a million to get right."
