The brief was to de­sign a taste­fu­lyet-fun chil­dren’s bath­room for a cre­ative cou­ple — an artist and a cu­ra­tor. US ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign firm Char­lap Hy­man & Her­rero jumped right in, com­bin­ing an ar­ray of un­usual el­e­ments for this con­tem­po­rary project, ref­er­enc­ing Ital­ian styles of the 1920s and ’30s, and fea­tur­ing play­ful ob­jects with kid ap­peal. “We in­cor­po­rated a flamingo the kids call ‘mingo’, a paint­ing by their fa­ther, artist Seth Cameron, and a Dan­ish chil­dren’s chair to lighten the mood,” says Alexan­der Char­lap Hy­man, di­rec­tor of Char­lap Hy­man & Her­rero. In­spired by the bath­room in Mi­lan’s Villa Nec­chi, the wall tiles are a deep ink blue, off­set with rich blue-and-cream tiles in a di­ag­o­nal pat­tern on the floor (all sourced from Her­itage Tile). The bath­tub was found in the base­ment dur­ing the ren­o­va­tion, and the vin­tage sink was sourced from a Mas­sachusetts sal­vage de­pot. Visit ch-her­rero.com
