Next Generation's "Industrial French" Powder Room

Here are photos from my youngest daughter's powder room. This half bath is where her tots wash their hands before and after meals and where mama and daddy wash up when they come in from out-of-doors. Form follows function, so Rachel put a casual spin on the space. I'd call the design aesthetic "industrial French".

The room's charming leaded-glass window dictated iron and pewter finishes rather than gilding or polished metal. The small chandelier is pewter-colored iron.
Two leaded-glass windows from Mission Road Antiques add visual interest to plain-vanilla walls.

And on the floor, Rachel placed an antique French pewter basket loaded with design magazines.
Across the room, my daughter--with the help of her preschoolers--painted the vanity with Annie Sloan chalk paint. The wonderful zinc mirror is perfect for above the sink.

 Hand towels from Target are embroidered with the fleur-de-lis.
However in my estimation, the piece-de-resistance is another find from Mission Road Antiques, a French lavabo.
How fitting that the zinc basin below the spigot is filled with French milled soap and packets of lavender.
