Add sparkle with crystal elements
This Parisian powder room created by Stéphanie Coutas of SC Editions is a visual extension of the apartment’s elegant interior. Coutas, famous for her bespoke design approach, adorned the powder room with custom-made pieces from SC Editions.

Create surprising architectural elements—like a playful window
Designed by architectural firm RT+Q, this inconspicuous powder room is only accessible through a concealed door. Guests can locate the bathroom through an elevated porthole-like opening on the door panel.

Make a statement with mirrors
