Delicate Detailing


BY NATURE, A MIDCENTURY MODERN HOME— with its clean lines and form over function detailing—can feel a bit austere. So, when Momoko Morton Wong of Naka Interiors designed this primary bathroom, she wanted to bring in some subtle, yet powerful, softness to the space. “It’s playful without being too whimsical,” she says. “There is beauty and fun in the symmetry of the design.” It retains its midcentury bones through the vanity in a rich tone with sleek lines and sans fussy details like cabinet pulls, the light fixtures, the geometric chevron pattern of the backsplash tile, and the functional aspects including inset cabinets behind the mirrors. The elegance is in the soft brushed-gold fixtures, the delicate curved corners of the mirrors and quartzite countertop in a pearlescent white with a delicate sheen of glitter throughout.
