Equator 'scape'

Hey MDG,
I saw your readymade 'Zebra bathroom scape' last Sunday and  I was hoping to get some advice for my powder room bath.  I would really like to incorporate black, gray and white into my room. Do you know of any stones to suggest with these colors and any design advice on how to use them?
Becca from NYC

Hi Becca,
I have a stone for you! It is called Equator White. It is a sleek and sophisticated marble featuring a white background with dramatic dark grey and black banding. It is available in both tile and slab and would compliment any modern home. You can find it at the Artistic Tile showroom in New York City.

Now how to use this gorgeous stone:

Put your money into the Equator stone flooring using 12"X24" tiles and create a chic focal wall by framing the Equator stone around a large mirror. On the frame, play with the vein direction of the marble. That's what will make it look so interesting! I am showing dark gray walls to accentuate the dark banding in the stone which is Benjamin Moore's  trout gray # 2124-20.

To make a statement, either sit the sculptural Vitraform Coppa glass pedestal (1) infront of the mirror or the Cogliati sink (3), oh my! These sinks are very special in that Cogliati encases stone or enamel sinks in transparent glass. Pair the sink with Dornbracht's Symetrics (2) single hole faucet. Water will project from the mirror, how cool! To echo the rectangular shape of the Cogliati glass sink, use the Duravit Vero toilet (4). Love those contemporary lines! To finish off the room, you need a spectacular chandilier. Switch collection has a beauty called mercury (5). The reflective mirrored pebbles can float from the squared off cove.

If you need further showroom information, contact me. Love to see some pics, Becca!
