Our powder rooms was dead. It looked plain. It looked like a hospital bathroom. It needed to be resuscitated with LIFE! Here she is all pale:
Using a defibrillator we resuscitated her. Sticking to our beach house naturals I went with sea grass wallpaper. The powder room took 3 double rolls. 3 x 2=6 good job!
Here is the big reveal:
This is what you see from the little hallway.
Walking in you are greeted with the original pedestal sink and toilet.
I had this mirror in our home in Portland. The frame was gold so I decided to tone it down a bit with a soft white. I added a little mantle which provides room for fun decor.
I purchased these Anthropology spice jars and made a couple of sea arrangements out of them. I got the jars when they were on sale so the numbers were limited. They were sold out of #1. I could not resist, I needed my 1 2 3 4. So I bough two #4's, came home pulled out my number stamps and stamped #1 on the opposite site of the extra #4. I love when I come up with brilliant ideas : )
Nightlight shine bright!
For extra dimension and texture I added six Ikea plates to help emphasize the corner on top of the toilet.
Since we lack storage in this powder room, I grabbed a fabulous idea from the amazingly talented Sherry and John (Don't forget Clara and Burger) at http://www.younghouselove.com/. I found a wide mouth glass vase and stack the spare toilet paper. Brilliant!
On the opposite wall is where the towels spend their life! We wanted to get a bit silly and added a vintage aluminum sign. To make the sign pop, I added an empty frame.
Lets Just hope the toilet doesn't get clogged.
So whatchya think?
