Elegant Transitional Powder Room with White Shiplap and Bold Navy Wallpaper
Let shiplap stretch the appearance of a small bathroom. The chic wall treatment also doesn’t have to be relegated to a farmhouse or rustic-style space, either. In this powder room, Atlanta designer Michele Gratch painted the shiplap a brighter white to match the ornate mirror and graphic floral designer wallpaper in navy. The elegant crystal sconces with polished nickel arms look expensive but are affordable, for less than $80.
The walls of this California powder room are covered with hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper. The bubbly, Italian glass antique sconces and the frosted glass tap handles extend the watery theme of the fish wallpaper.
Thick quartz countertops are lovely atop this powder room vanity. For graphic panache, dark blue wallpaper does the job handsomely. Designers expanded the once-tiny space by incorporating the square footage of a little-used closet.
Butterflies and birds take flight in this powder room, helping the small space feel full of interest and energy. Notice, too, how the designers used candles and striped towels to bring out the pink blooms of the wallpaper.
Obviously, the fish wallpaper is adorable and eye-catching in this powder room. But don't overlook the other creative design in this small space. The window was strategically placed to allow a mirror to be installed and to have a unifying trim. The window sill extends, capturing the backsplash thickness. The floating vanity has a toilet paper recess for stashing multiple rolls, making it quick and easy so no one ever has to change a roll of toilet paper!
