My favorite room that ‘asks’ for wallpaper is the powder room. A powder room (often called half bath or guest bath, is usually a small bathroom with only a toilet and a sink. To me, it is the room that most guests will see and use as it is usually located by the main living areas of the house, so it is fun to show off! The powder room is the room that can you can splurge on and let your creativity and design gene being activated. Powder rooms allow you to apply different materials, strong colors and fun patterns. With the array of wallpaper qualities we have nowadays, the powder room can be turned into a piece of art.
In this post, I pinpoint a few of my favorite designs, the ones that I could look at all day long . . .
Beyond dreamy, this tiny bath by Alexandra Barker takes flight. The blue clouds and red sparrows wallpaper by Julia Rothman makes the room airy and full of movement. via
A beautiful vibrant design by Thibaut picks up the whites and grays and creates great contrast with the carrera marble, the vessel sink and the curvy white mirror. Designer Molly Frey used the floral orange and gray background perfectly to jazz up this guest bath. via
Mid-Century meets traditional. The big scale and intense wallpaper floral design adds an ‘awe’ to the simplicity of the wash basin and the clean hexagonal tile. via
A bit of a Moorish medallion pattern in rich blue makes this room exotic and rich at the same time. The geometric design here plays the role of a tile. via
The tone-on-tone ikat design in light gray makes an interesting yet understated background on the simple white vanity, until the orange shade pops up with the bright trim and the gorgeous Chippendale orange- painted mirror. . . Wow! via
Another Chippendale classic this lattice in navy and green by Thibaut, imitates a tile wall treatment. A so boring bathroom can turn up to a fun space!
Here the wall treatment is like a piece of art. The classic Greek key plays with the whimsy of the Pierre Frey Arty wallpaper and the bold coral vanity. Great combo! via
Gorgeous thistle-like pattern in lavender tones. I love the calming presence of the light purple tones and the strength of the dark vanity cabinet. via
The beautiful Arts and Crafts pattern here gives life to the dark simple bath space in a very unique way. I love the sconces sticking out of the scenario–very different! Design by Palmer Weiss
Contemporary design meets elegance and art! The translucent legs of the vanity gracefully step back in this bathroom so the citrine mirror and the large scale wallpaper do the talking. via
If you like bold, you got it! This stunning red tulip pattern gives a warm hug to the powder room and whoever comes to visit. The smartly chosen wash basin makes a classic, timeless statement. via
Here a classic European bath becomes the center of adventure! I love the old style flush tank and the traditional right and left faucets. (We used to have some of these when I was a kid back in Greece.) via
I am smitten by this beautiful floral pattern in blues and greens by Good Bones Design. And the ceiling color choice is right on the money… Love!
Here the classic design of Scalamandré Zebras make this bathroom happy and create a bold statement. via
Another classic. This wallpaper is one of my favorites. I like it in all its color-ways, but the blue is to die for! Osborne and Little Derwent via
The timeless Cole & Son pear tree wallpaper rendezvous with the contemporary concrete sink. The sleek design by Creative Tonic brings to this bathroom lots of texture and an industrial feel.
Another marriage of traditional and contemporary. The blue Art Deco wallpaper breaks the ‘seriousness’ of the traditional pedestal vanity. via
Stars, bows and arrows and the creativity play with the many patterns, textures and shapes in an artful way. I love how the architectural wall and the unexpected yellow door. via
There is a dash of drama and lots of mystery that comes out of this Chinoiserie wallpaper. The powder room instantly turns into something exotic and intimate. via
Another Thistle-like pattern in a fabulous citron color gives a flavor of the Far East. I personally love big-scale patterns like this and how strangely enough they make a small space look bigger .via
The oriental pattern in classic black background gives an exotic impression. The focus here is the wall and nothing else. The small vanity and the mirror give a ‘just be’ message. via
I love the exotic flora of this bath! The banana leaves take over so much that you really think you are in the jungle. . .Photo by Amy Bartlam. Design by Sandra Fox Interiors.
I love peacocks. They are royal and graceful birds! Here they give a sense of dancing on the wall and they definitely succeed in making me happy! via
I couldn’t help but include this bath in my list of favorites. The simple yet strong personality of the vanity and the magic of the purple hues make this bathroom a hideaway spot. via
