My House Inspiration: Powder Bath

1.24.2011

We have a downstairs powder bathroom that will need to be updated. I thought that this would be the perfect spot to incorporate a fun print with wallpaper like this one by Jill Sharp:


 Or this one by Palmer Weiss:


But those might be too funky for me. I do like this subtle print from Coastal Living:


But after seeing this powder bath by Amy Morris... she may have changed my mind from wallpaper to horizontal planking on the walls. I am planning on using this design element in another room in my house (if the budget allows)--- so it would be fun to repeat it again in this small space.

I am really LOVING your inspiration... the first image is probably my favorite, that sink is to die for! I also really love the wallpaper in the second space- thanks for sharing!

Such different styles, I do love both and am going to incorporate a lot of wallpaper and hopefully some planking as well...if it were not for the silly budget! I love to see all of the inspiration coming together, it is going to be just fabulous Brooke!

I have always loved the Jill Sharp bathroom but, planking is a great look too. Decisions, decisions. Good luck!

Go Bold! A powder room is a great way to get it out of your system.. Love the 2nd pic. Beautiful!

My favorite thing about a powder room is that it's small enough to take a risk...love the picks!! Can't wait to see yours!!

Cracking plaster ceilings in my own home were taped and then covered with 12" wide Baltic pine boards selected from Home Depot. They perfectly compliment my antique Swedish furniture. So my vote would be for wood unless a wallpaper truly grabbed you. __ The Devoted Classicist, http://tdclassicist.blogspot.com

love all of those. Had no idea Jill Sharp has wallpaper? I have to see more! Did you see her & her husband's studio yesterday on Design Sponge? I thought of you when I saw it--neutral heaven!

Love the planking, too--and it might even be cheaper than some papers!

Think paneling gives a more formal feel and the planks give a more casual look. I am not sure you could go wrong with either.
