The curved tap and scrolled feet on the ottomans reference the swirls on the hand-painted walls of this powder room. Other features of the space include pop-art portraits of the original architect and his sister, interior designer Frances Elkins.

A renovation project in a house by a noted architect and designer brings an opportunity to reinterpret their motifs in the new design.

When reworking this powder room in a home by noted architect David Adler, interior designer Susan Brunstrum of Sweet Peas Design says she was inspired by Adler's love of eclecticism.

A circular table lamp and white spine sculpture by Leora Brecher add a note of restrained modernism in this powder room.

"Geometric themes play a unifying role in this design. I repeated the diamond pattern Adler used on the hand-planked door on the metallic, multi-level ceiling which hides the many pipes and varying ceiling heights."

The diamond motif can be seen again on the walls, in a scrollwork pattern Brunstrum adapted from a vintage design.

"The walls were too uneven for wallpaper, so we stenciled the pattern onto a shimmery hand-painted background. Finally, 133,000 paint dots were applied individually by syringe!"

Other features of the space include pop-art portraits of the original architect and his sister, interior designer Frances Elkins.
