Check out these decorating ideas for your powder room!
Complete with trompe l’oeil tassels, summery blue and white stripes transform a powder room by a pool into a tented beach cabana. The stripes on the ceiling mimic a peaked roof and help fool the eye into seeing a taller, loftier space.
Since there’s no need to stash everyday necessities under a powder room sink, the vanity is liberated from its storage task and becomes strictly a statement piece. A Lucite-framed mirror in a zingy yellow continues the theme of transparency.
In an opposites-attract powder room, a shared palette prevents the glam leopard-print wallpaper and pharmacy-style metal vanity from clashing. The distressed mirror with coral-pink streaks doesn’t see daily use, so it serves mostly to inject color into the bold but limited color scheme.
Grey and Gold
When used in such a small space, this silk ikat wallcovering’s large-scale print seems energizing rather than overwhelming. The 1820s French mirror’s reverse-painted frame keeps the graphic patterns coming.
The combination of a few luxe touches — delicate Baguès-style sconces, an intricately carved Italian Baroque mirror, an antique French-limestone floating vanity — creates old-world elegance and a sense of fantasy without leaving the house.
