Moody & Mod

Based in London, Ontario, Moralia represents its vision as “the synthesis of emotion and functional innovative design” and is a manufacturer and design company that creates dramatic, bespoke interiors so luxurious you'll feel like Tony Stark in his mansion could feel in Malibu. “The best bathrooms are the ones that challenge our idea of ​​what a bathroom should look like,” says Vincent Erck, Managing Director of Moralia. It is this vision that drives every design decision for a Moralia bathroom.

“We always try to remove all unnecessary noise from our designs and evoke a feeling of calm, order and curiosity,” says Erck. In a luxury bathroom, for example, you can achieve this with a backlit mirror that shines like a solar eclipse over the washbasin. Suspended lights provide visual lightness and LED-Accented cabinets provide storage space for all your home spa potions and elixirs.

Sun kissed

“Fresh and clean” was the brief for the powder room, which designer Lisa Kooistra introduced with nearly bare countertops and a floating solid stone vanity whose power is balanced by the minimalist wall-mounted faucet. Illuminated by two wiry sconces with swinging arms on either side, the overall effect of the fixture is whimsical and modern. Kooistra, who worked with her husband, general contractor Ryan Kooistra of York Renovation & Design, on the entire home project, harks back to yesteryear (here with a terrazzo floor) but updates it in a minimalist color palette.

Artful elegance

Tom Ford wasn't actually involved in the conception of this powder room, but the legendary designer's fingerprints might as well adorn the finished product. “The clients are both fans of his work and I felt the dramatic modern aesthetic was exactly what we needed,” says designer Amanda Shields, who was hired to upgrade the home's bathrooms 90S.

Shields brought Ford's sleek, sexy aesthetic to the blue quartzite vanity and his impeccable tailoring to the lines of the fluted ceiling and wall. A backlit mirror and LED Accents give the space the five-star hotel opulence the homeowners desire. Shields says she always encourages her clients to “take risks” in the powder room. If it were actually a Tom Ford fragrance, it would have to be “F*cking Fabulous.”
