Nar Bustamante won a 2nd place National Award at KBIS for his Powder Room.
From the NKBA Magazine: ‘Rusted Reveal - Designer Nar Bustamante, Nar Design Group, Sacramento, CA, set out to create a ‘wow’ factor in this small powder room. A bold, peeling metallic rust wallcovering in a light turquoise color takes center stage and contrasts with the large-format white textured tiles that frame the sink and toilet. The clean lines of the floating, single-thickness countertop and vessel sink leave the white tile largely uninterrupted. An indented niche behind the sink adds depth to the small space. Dramatic white lighting under the mirror and sink contrasts purposefully with two subtle and warm sconces above.” -AH
