Last summer, the chapter worked to upgrade the downstairs powder room. To the best of our knowledge the powder room had not been updated since it initial decoration/coloring from the time the house was built. The chapters wanted a place that they would be proud to show off to guests (all PNM’s, chapter guests, etc use the downstairs powder room) and also a place that fit with the rest of the facility.
Chapter Advisor, Britain worked with the house manager, and house director, to finalize plans. The outcome is below:
The powder room features a padded bench, with storage underneath. The fabric features mini red carnations. Photos in the down stairs powder room are from the photos taken from the original house grand opening in 1956
The bathroom stalls, feature louvered doors. In each stall a lyre bird print is hung. (will post photos next week of house “art”)
The chandelier is the main source of light for the room (other than natural light)
The corner of the powder room feature a vanity with stools. many out of house sister use this area to get ready for socials/date functions at the chapter house.
Above is a close up of the vanity. The cabinets were designed specifically for Beta Eta!
We hope you can stop by and take a chapter house tour!!!
