Powder rooms are a fun place to play with design ideas. Small projects that you may not want to take out into the main parts of your house, but that could really liven up a small space.
In case you all forgot, here’s the BEFORE image of what our powder room looked like when my husband and I moved into our new home last summer. This wallpaper was not my style, the floors were lighter than we’d like, and the metallic mini blinds had to go.
Here’s what a fresh coat of cream paint with a great new mirror and accessories will do:
But, I wanted to add a little something more.
So, we recently had horizontal boards added around the bottom circumference of the room and painted the same cream color. Now, the room has a chic bamboo shade and fabric valance, darker stained floors, and a pretty wall color to boot.
And those dark painted doors are still one of my favorite decisions we’ve made around here.
My husband and I both LOVE the horizontal boards in this little room – sometimes I think how fun it would be to have them everywhere!!!
I also grabbed my paint brush to recreate some small watercolors of pagodas I’d recently seen to hang in this space. I love the color in them and the grid look with the gold frames.
Aren’t they presh?
The colors pull from the rest of our home – blues, greens, with hints of coral and pink.
