I know I have been talking about a powder room refresh for a long time, but I’ve found myself never able to fully commit to something that I loved. Two times in the past year I created new vision boards and asked for input, but in the end, I wasn’t feeling it. Playing around with many samples of removable wallpaper made my family crazy. Some samples even hung in the bathroom for months, and I wasn’t sold on any of them.
Enter this piece of art I found at Home Goods a few weeks ago. I LOVE it! Everything about it was just what I was looking for without the commitment of wallpaper, removable or not. Plus, I couldn’t beat the price.
I always knew I wanted to go ‘dramatic’ in this space. Powder rooms are so easy to test out styles and extend comfort zones since they are smaller in size. Our room in particular is very narrow and has high ceilings, so the more drama the better!
Here is my vision board thus far. Black walls with picture frame molding, bold striped ceiling with white crown molding, gold and chrome accents, some wooden elements for softness, a few added abstract art pieces, and new lighting. The original white pedestal sink is staying, but I want to add an updated facet.
I also found a white mirror very similar to the one above at Home Goods. It’s perfect because it’s tall and narrow. My friends were a little hesitant when I said I was going with black walls, but J told them just to trust me with design. I love him for that!
Paint color: Tricorn black by Sherwin Williams. It’s a neutral black with no strong undertones.
Here are a few images that served as inspiration:
