I love an unexpected powder room. You may have seen this powder room in the March issue of HGTV magazine. YES!!! That is one that Ann and I did for a client in the mountains. Nothing prepares you for this while flipping through a mag in the Walmart aisle when you unexpectedly come across your work. Nothing.
Because it is such a small space and mostly used by guests, it is always fun when the client is willing to take risks. Wallpaper is my favorite way to liven up a bathroom. Unless you can get Ann to do something like this... Remember this powder room from one of our most daring clients?
I love how the metallic damask paper turned out and go glad she went for the coral ceiling.A lacquered mirror from The Coop mimics the lines of the wallpaper.
We kept their existing vanity and changed out the top and knobs. Check out the BEFORE:
Changing the faux marble top to real marble and swapping out the brass fixtures for an updated look was a less expensive fix than ripping out the vanity and it looks brand new!
We changed out the knobs for some turquoise "jewelry" from Anthropologie.
I'm loving the chandelier -- and the round bulbs -- it's all in the details.
The living room and dining room are almost finished. If you think this is fun.... stay tuned!
bye bye birdie...
