Set The Stage and Let Every Room Tell A Story - Metrie

When I was asked to design a bathroom for DXV Luxury Products by American Standard, I knew I wanted to use Breakfast at Tiffany's for inspiration.  The focal point of the bathroom would be beautiful Tiffany Blue double doors which would open into the space.  The first order of business was to locate the prettiest doors possible to be custom painted Tiffany Blue.

I looked high and low for the perfect doors and then remembered Metrie Interior Mouldings and Doors!  I had been introduced to Metrie at Design Bloggers Conference and immediately fell in love with their Fashion Forward Collection which had the perfect door.  
I love the style of the door which is designed for center mounted hardware.  This design is elegant, sophisticated and chic.  I wish all the doors in my house were like the Metrie "Fashion Forward" doors.
 Metrie also offers hinges in four different finishes, so you can choose one to match or complement the other hardware for your door too!  Metrie interior doors are pre-hung on a double-rabbited jamb that is available in 4 9/16".  The doors also come in three different materials, Popular, White Oak and Primed, which is the one I chose for my project.  The doors are available in heights of 80", 84" and 96" and widths which range from 16" wide to 36" wide so there is a size to fit any application you may desire.

After I chose the doors, I decided to then use the complimenting baseboards and crown moulding from the Fashion Forward collection to complete my bathroom.  I really like the higher baseboards which work so well in today's taller rooms.  Click here to see the Fashion Forward crown moulding options.

Here is a close up of the Metrie Fashion Forward door.
The fluting of the door casing is so attractive.

I  chose Iion motif door knocker style hardware for the doors.

 This is the original rendering of the room, I had in my mind when I  designed the room.  

This is the final results!  Do you think I was successful?  I was extremely happy with how the bathroom turned out thanks to DXV luxury products and the beautiful Metrie products.
