Finally sharing a peek at our new powder bathroom! When we moved into our home (it’s 92 years old!) there was no bathroom on the first floor. We knew that when we gave our kitchen a little facelift we wanted to try and find a space for a powder bath. Our home is pretty small and our first floor is basically one big loop and finding a space was interesting. Luckily our living room was extremely long and we ended up carving out half of the back half of it to add this small little cutie. 

I’m sorry the photos aren’t the best – it’s not the easiest space to find good lighting. Because this space is pretty small I knew I wanted to do something fun but also fitting to the style of our home. The exterior and interiors of our home are very traditional so I focused on wallpaper and lighting to make this space shine. One thing to note that was sort of a challenge with this room is that the little pocket where the sink sits is extremely small. On the other side of the wall we cut out a space for our fridge to open up some kitchen counter space which created this nook for the sink/mirror. We could not find a mirror to fill this space so my friend Meg of MegMade just whipped this up for the space! Everything else was too small and didn’t compliment our oversized lighting. 

Our first choice was the wallpaper and we went with Schumacher’s Chrysanthemum in Chambray (generously gifted from the brand!). I wanted something to compliment our living room (which is painted Benjamin Moore Brittany Blue) for a monochromatic look. I love how this wallpaper peeks through the door and into this space! It’s a very sweet print so we wanted to add some juxtaposition with oversized lighting. We went with this Parrish Sconce which is so fun above the mirror. I wanted something to fill the space since it’s a long narrow space and we didn’t have many option for the sink. I love the way it looks with the mirror Meg made!

For the ceiling, we color matched the blue in Schumacher’s Chrysanthemum in Chambray and painted it to add a statement to the room! We ordered a few different fixtures for the ceiling and none of them felt right. We landed on this this Capiz Flushmount from Serena & Lily and I love how the pattern next to the floral and how it compliments the floors! It is such a statement and is definitely my favorite part of the room. 

I’m so happy with how this little powder room turned out! It’s such a happy little corner of our house and everyone always compliments how bright and cheery it is, which was exactly what I hoped for. Now onto the next house project! It’s never-ending – ha.
