Bathroom Vanity Cabinet Awash in Santa Fe Colors




Creating customized color palettes for our furniture pieces is our specialty and a task I really enjoy. Typically a customer will share fabric swatches, paint samples, floor tiles or any detail that is important to the theme of the room.

In this case, there was no doubt that the focus was on a very colorful and sculptural mirror that had a Santa Fe flavor and tribal motif.

Although my customer was doing a complete remodel of her powder room, replacing paneling with Ralph Lauren metallic paints and bringing in a Santec faucet in old copper.finish, the mirror was destined  to keep a starring role.
So my challenge was to create a sink cabinet to share the stage with this very showy piece.  At first glance I thought this was going to be an easy combination of earthy rusty tones with splashes of sunset hues. But the more I looked at the mirror, I realized that each dancing spirit had it's own specific color theme and I wanted our sink cabinet to complement the beauty of each.

 So I paired the verdigris with the camel tones and the purple with the hot coppery orange. The addition of a golden vessel sink will complete the vignette and I'll be back to shoot a photo of the finale!
