Style of bathroom: “I would call this bathroom 19th-century farmhouse style,” Felt says.
Vanity style: Freestanding with inset doors and drawers with exposed frame. The vanity was custom made by Paul Eull of Eull Woodworks.
Dimensions of vanity: 62 inches wide by 22 inches deep by 36 inches high
Vanity paint color: Greenmount Silk by Benjamin Moore
Hardware: Simple round knobs in oil-rubbed bronze match the cabinet doors’ exposed hinges. (Similar: Dominion Knob by Baldwin Hardware)
Sinks: “We needed to keep them petite,” Felt says. These are Caxton 15-by-12-inch undermount oval sinks from Kohler.
Faucets: The faucets mix a polished nickel finish with black porcelain handles. They are the Easton EALS04-K from Waterworks.
Countertop: Carrara marble
Backsplash: There is no backsplash, a common look in a farmhouse-style bathroom. The wainscot around the vanity is walnut with a clear finish. Above the walnut is beadboard.
Mirror: This is a quarter-inch polished edge mirror set in a walnut frame.
Lighting: The choice of Hadley wall sconces from Hudson Valley were inspired by the welcoming porches seen on homes in the South and are an apt fit for the farmhouse look. The silk fixture by Fortuny near the bath adds soft, elegant contrast.
Bonus: Because the vanity is freestanding and relatively small, there was room on either side for towel bars.
Also worth noting is the mix of metals in the room. Dark finishes on the sconces, cabinet pulls and faucet handles are small but important details that help tie the vanity vignette together.

Dimensions of vanity: Approximately 6 feet wide by 2 feet deep by 3 feet high

Hardware: The simple pulls are original to the antique table.
Sinks: The rectilinear vessel sinks add modern contrast to the vintage base. “The extra height of the sinks are especially appreciated by taller people,” Tharp says. These are Avalon sinks from Signature Hardware.
Faucets: Hi Arc Lavatory Faucets, Rohl
Counters: The wooden top is part of the original antique. “Its imperfections are its beauty,” Tharp says. “One can wipe on a little mineral oil if areas get dry-looking, but it really is a personal preference — it has held up beautifully.”
Backsplash: There is no backsplash, just the V-groove paneling used all the way up the walls.
Mirror: Custom, and proportioned to leave enough space on either side for the sconces
Lighting: Gooseneck sconces that play off the arch of the faucets and farmhouse style. These are Barn Light sconces from Barn Light Electric Company.
“Aedi Construction did a great job of accommodating the work table’s antique irregularities, including rebuilding interior drawers to allow for plumbing while salvaging precious storage,” the designer says.
