Powder Rooms

Powder rooms may be small, but they can speak volumes about a person…

Because powder rooms tend to be that one tiny, windowless, and often unnoticed space {because the door is usually closed} in the home, many people use this room to make a statement.  You know, they’ll use an over-the-top wallpaper, glossy glam tile, or an intense color — something a little crazy and something they love but would never do anywhere else in the house.  The powder room becomes their design fantasy.

Fortunately for my husband I haven’t had time to really think about our powder room, but I’ve been toying with the idea of doing something wild and crazy.  Pictured below are a few of the existing elements that I’m working with {although I may just start from scratch}.  Hubby will not like this.

Definitely a mix of styles, but the colors — blue, yellow and green — are the unifying factors.  I have two shades of blue on the walls, but I’d like to add a third color and also paint the ceiling.  I’ll let you know what I come up with…

  1. Hi Kelly, it is a small room like a powder room or a walk in closet where you can afford to be a little bold and fun! I am tempted myself. Really like the image from Coastal Living.

    Hope all is well!

  2. My husband’s grandmother built a custom home with the help of an architect, and when it came time to decorate her house, she ended up turning the blueprints for the house into wallpaper for the downstairs powder room. It was SUCH a nice touch! I think blueprints are beautiful, and in this case, it was such a nice way to celebrate her unique home.
