When I first discovered photos of Betty Lou Phillips‘ Parisian-chic powder room in House Beautiful, it was love at first sight. Phillips, an acclaimed author and interior designer, holds an affinity for Parisian and Italian design and décor. Her European-inspired bath is a true testament to her luxurious taste and something she has brought to life in her Dallas home.
Phillips certainly has an eye for stylish living. The designer used period pieces such as a 19th-century crystal chandelier, nickel-leg washstands and a vintage glass pharmacy chest to capture an old world charm. She also showered the space in gleaming silver tones and custom accessories etched with French terms such as monsieur and madame. If I were in the market for an elegant spa-like bath, I would love to draw inspiration from Phillips’ romantic retreat.
