In The Works: Planning A Powder Room

October 12, 2015 by Melissa | 0 Comments

We are in the process of remodeling a very small powder room.  When I say small, I mean small.  The room is 61″ x 65″ and the wall that holds the sink and toilet is the shorter one. As a result of being so tight on space, we are being especially careful with our planning. We want the room to be practical as a guest space, but we do not want to forego style.  And, of course, there is always the budget to consider.  So, what did we come up with?

We wanted the powder room to feel special and a bit like a jewel box.  We chose each of the elements with the intention of adding a little bit of glamour.  We think the gold in the Farrow & Ball wallpaper, the crystal pendant, the curve of the sconces, and the slightly unexpected shape of the mirror all contribute to that feeling.  We cannot wait to watch it all come together.
