From the master bath in this Paris pied-à-terre, the circa-1760 rosewood-and-bronze writing desk and 18th-century gilded wood stool are French, the pendant light is made of a 19th-century lantern, the shower doors are all steel and the walls are sheathed in plaster that is striped.SIMPLE SCONCES
Straightforward lighting provides striking contrast to this active Finnish wallpaper in the 1950s adorning the walls of the Manhattan apartment powder room, decorated by Katie Ridder. Hanging above a Waterworks sink, a FontanaArte mirror echoes the wall colour.CRYSTAL SCONCES AND SHALLOW CEILING LIGHT
The master bathroom sinks by Urban Archaeology have Dornbracht fittings within this enchanting West Village loft. The chair cushion is covered in a Holland & Sherry terry cloth, sconces and the ceiling lighting are 1960s Italian, and the floor is granite.UNDERSTATED CEILING LIGHT
Understated lighting appeals to the minimal aesthetic of this bathroom in a modern Washington, D.C. home designed by Darryl Carter. The dressing table hides drawers for storage.MID-CENTURY CHANDELIER
Thanks to some brother architects, this apartment on Paris's Right Bank has a dark and moody aesthetic that upgrades classic French design for the 21st century. The master bathroom retains a 1950s American dining table a 1960s chandelier, and a armchair. The market is clad in hand-cut glass-mosaic tiles the walls are of Italian marble, and the floor is tiled with gold-leafed-glass and marble mosaics.
