When Brooklyn-based radio producer Miki decided to treat herself to her dream bathroom, she called on Homepolish, an interior design start-up that only charges a flat hourly fee, to take her to the promise land. Let’s just say that Homepolish delivered.

While brass details pair well with black and white, Sandie was careful not to overdo it. To keep it tasteful, she balanced the flashy brass with more subdued oil-rubbed fixtures on the sink.
Limiting the palette to two or three colors and playing with texture helped make the small bathroom appear to be much larger. Marble subway tiles on the wall and black tiles with light grouting on the floor add subtle pattern and richness.
