A special powder bathroom

 


Late last year I was privileged to work on a guest powder bathroom. My client felt like her guest bath was blah, and she wanted to create a really beautiful space in a very tiny room. So I came up with a design plan and we got to work. The simplified version of the plan was to add panelling around the bottom of the room and find a beautiful wallpaper to go on top. I installed the panelling and painted it, and we had Design Wallcoverings install the amazing wallpaper from Finest Wallpaper. It is so hard to accurately capture this room. It is stunning. Every time I have gone back to the house I ask if I can just peek into the room because it’s so beautiful. Here is the before.

I suggested adding the panelling and painting all of the new and existing panelling, including the door, one of the lighter, less obvious colours of the wallpaper. This blue is just beautiful and it plays so well with the wallpaper. The wallpaper is the thing you can’t help but stare at when you see the room. I sourced it from Finest Wallpaper. They are an awesome Canadian company with five-star customer service. I wanted the panelling to complement the wallpaper and be able to stand up next to it without competing to be the star of the show. 


Since there were no wood tones in the room we added them in the mirror frame and accessories. They add warmth and texture, and they look beautiful next to all the other elements in the space.


I just love the way the door looks painted with the rest of the trim. The panelling was affordable and would be a great DIY. I used 1/8” MDF 4’x8’ feet panels, and had Home Depot cut them into strips for me. The material for the panelling came in under $150.

This bathroom is three feet by eight feet, with the doorway in the middle of one of the long walls. It was a difficult room to photograph and I wasn’t able to really capture how stunning it is. However, we were able to achieve the goal of creating a beautiful powder bathroom that any of my client’s guests would enjoy being in. This is a great example of Reclaiming Home’s Design Package C. I hope you enjoyed seeing this transformation as much as I enjoyed doing it.
