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
