Before and After: Katherine Power's Petite Powder Room

For an interior designer, one of the most thrilling parts of the process is the big reveal—when every last accessory is installed and your client finally sees all your hard work come to fruition. It’s especially exhilarating if your client has been hands-off during the project. Such was the case for interior stylist Peter Dolkas (our former market editor), who was recently hired by Clique Media Group co-founder and CEO Katherine Power to transform a powder room in her new home: “I gave him a budget and told him to surprise me,” Power tells us.

“She pretty much gave me free rein, which is an unusual thing for a client to do, but so much fun,” Dolkas says. Since he’s known Power for years and helped her style her previous home in Beverly Hills, Dolkas felt he had a firm handle on her aesthetic. “She has great taste, so I feel lucky to work on her home,” he adds.
