The powder bath is likely the only bathroom your guests will see, so I feel it’s a great place to be creative and bold with design,” says Meagan McKusick. This miniature masterpiece in Yarmouth showcases topnotch tilework by Tyler Montgomery of TCT Marble & Tile. The floor is a tartan plaid composed of 0.33-inch squares of silver, dark olive, and beige stone and marble. Each 13.3-by-13.3-inch section contains 1,200 stones. Behind the mirror, a basic black subway in herringbone converses with the plaid. Jon Meade Design in Portland customcast, drilled, and polished the floating vanity with a vanishing drain. “The sink is far more modern than the wall or floor,” says Meagan, but its unique simplicity makes it the perfect fit.”  

Taking cues from a Chicago hotel, the powder room floor features a tartan mosaic in silver, dark-olive, and beige marble and stone from Old Port Specialty Tile.
