When Laurie LeBoeuf was tasked with creating a beautiful bathroom for her client’s daughter, she delivered a stunning space with a fantastic flamingo flair.

“This particular client has a southern style and loves all things whimsical and fun with a dose of classic tradition,” says LeBoeuf, senior designer for Castle Design. “I think we were able to marry all of these elements together and give her just that.”

LeBoeuf selected a classic hexagon marble tile for the floor and used brass and acrylic hardware to accentuate the space with coordinating fixtures from Signature Hardware. Soft white and gold Generation Lighting sconces were selected to flank the oversized mirror at the soft pink vanity and created a delightfully feminine vignette. To finish it off, Leboeuf used iconic Cole & Sons flamingo print wall covering to give the space a whimsical touch.

“The aesthetic of the space was driven by a desire to capture the youth of their daughter, all while providing her with a space that she could grow into,” LeBoeuf says. “The owners of this traditional home craved materials and finishes that distinguish their home forever from others. Committing to this fun flamingo flair in curated details and sweet style proved to be the perfect way of bringing art into a small space.”

The project serves as a great reminder to have fun with finishes.

“Don’t be afraid to combine traditional and modern elements,” LeBoeuf says. “The combination can create a fun, happy and fresh space. Designing a kid’s bathroom is all about fun and creativity. To create a look that is both playful and chic, we as designers rely on everything from graphic patterns to lively hues in order to infuse a small space with a big impact.”
