Curious about the homes of interior designers? Marianne Gatsch of Larson Gatsch Interiors in Belmar designed this stylish powder room in her own Spring Lake home. She anchored the space with a custom floating vanity featuring doors with inlaid pierced metal grilles, open shelving on the sides and a concrete countertop. A leather mirror with horse buckles hangs over the sink.

Gatsch tamed the 10-foot ceiling with a large burlap and oil-rubbed bronze chandelier and added a wrought iron candle sconce on the wall next to the sink. The walls are taupe with green undertones.

The floor is covered with brown and charcoal gray porcelain tiles with leopard-print ceramic tile accents, all installed by Donna Martin of Tiled Interiors. “This added some fun detail,” Gatsch says. “I love this powder room as much as my guests do.”
