Pattern in the Powder Room (+ Other Baths!)

Design-wise, bathrooms can certainly be a tough nut to crack! Due to all the plumbing and electrical needs, they are usually very expensive to remodel and due to their tight quarters, hard to update with any furniture. The solution . . . wallpaper! Wallpaper is an affordable way to add life and color to your bath. You can take a chance a bold pattern, usually the bath is too small for anything to be too overwhelming. Below are some of my favorites!


A bath by Meg Braff - I love the fresh spring green and white paper, I am almost certain its by Quadrille. I also am crazy for the vanity - a converted antique table and how the sink is set off center - very unexpected. {Photo by James Merrel for House Beautiful}

Amanda Nisbet designed this lady like bathroom clad in a paper by Manuel Canovas for Cowtan & Tout. The metallic poof seat is also a fun touch! 

An airy bathroom in Nantucket is so inviting with a wood painted sloped ceiling and walls inHinson's Spatter paper - a true classic! The sheer cafe curtains give privacy but still allow in all the light. Designed by Tom Scheerer, photo by Simon Upton.

An updated toile and lots of rich mossy green make this bathroom. The traditional medicine cabinet was replaced by a simple mirror perched on the wainscotting. The paper is L'Ile Des Lanternes, the photo I spotted on Housetohome.uk!

This fabulous marbleized wallpaper from Phesant by Twigs brings this bath to life. Note how cleverly designer Todd Klein trimmed the edges in deep red! It reminds of fancy Italian stationary :)

A bathroom I did for a client in a charming apartment in brownstone in Brooklyn Heights. I think the modern damask was just the thing to break up all the white! (Sorry the photo is not great!)
