Although powder bath’s are tiny spaces, they can have huge impact. You might think that since the space is small, you should keep it clean and simple with bright white paint. Although I am usually always down with white paint, in a small half bath with no natural light white can feel stark and boring. Instead, go bold to create a unique space that feels warm and inviting for visiting guests. In the powder bath of my Las Palmas Project, we created a coastal bohemian vibe with incredible wallpaper, a mix of patterns, and rich brass accents. Take a look!
The wallpaper in this space is a work of art and makes the prettiest statement. We used “The Dance” in the Ocean color way from Eskayel. We paired the pretty blues with a simple natural reclaimed oak vanity from Restoration Hardware. The combination of the cool blues and warm wood is a beautiful contrast.
We wanted to add warmth with brass fixtures, but did not want to distract from the walls. We decided to use a mix of metals. This is something we like to do in our spaces for a fresh modern look. We chose a simple mirror with round edges in a chrome finish and paired it with the Kohler Purist Widespread Faucet in brass.
The clean lines of the beautiful brass sconce with linen shades is a fresh update on a traditional look. The brass pops against the wallpaper, but the slender arms don’t detract from the pattern.
Layering patterns creates an effortless bohemian feel. Instead of keeping everything solid and simple, we added a few textures on top of the watercolored walls. We used a Turkish hand towel with blue patterned stripes, and fun seagrass baskets under the sink. Adding a basket creates hidden storage for towels and bathroom necessities.
