How To Style The Perfect Corner Vanity
A dreamy example of employing all these design theories and practices is in the master bath of the reality star and fashion designer Whitney Port, which was featured recently in Architectural Digest. Along with her husband, Tim Rosenman, Port updated the bathroom without having to move existing plumbing lines, and replaced a dated tile bath with a floor-to-ceiling marble corner vanity. By removing the original tub and expanding the size of the separate shower, the new corner vanity extends the length of the main wall. By using the corner space, Port could create an area where she could sit and apply makeup. The design created a semiprivate feeling with the corners recessed into the wall and lit by inset wall sconces for generous close-up lighting. And beyond the practical application, she created drama with an entire wall ensconced with marble (dare we say pink marble?).
Another thoughtful execution is to create a seating space within a corner by constructing the vanities on each perpendicular wall and bridging the unit with a mirror and padded vanity stool.
Bathroom decor may sound like an oxymoron to some, but many options provide function and visual appeal. Many tend to think of bathrooms with a fixed wall or overhead lighting option. But why not a lamp? Extending this double-sink corner vanity to the mirrored wall allows for this coordinating wood base lamp to add a touch of smart sophistication to the room.
