Contemporary Powder Room Features Sophisticated Vanity & Granite Vessel Sink
This sophisticated vanity in the powder room showcases a floating thick stone countertop and stone sink in granite adding visual impact. Gray patterned wallpaper offsets the strong lines of the vanity with softer textures and shapes.
The powder room is just off of the main living area. It is a fun and mysterious space with a glowing onyx countertop. With a simple porcelain tile backsplash and wood cabinets, the glowing onyx is the centerpiece of this powder room.
This small powder room has big personality. The floating vanity opens up the space and allows the eye to move easily and enjoy the chic chevron flooring. The wallpaper's vertical pattern moves the eye up which makes the room appear larger. According to designer Susan Jamieson "the wallpaper looks like porcupine quills and is a playful and perfect juxtaposition to the chevron floor. It's really okay to mix patterns in small spaces as long as you create visual balance and keep the eye moving."
Outlined in contrasting brown wood, the gray and white elegance of a slanted marble sink mingles with the texture and shadows of white mosaic tile in this stylish, contemporary powder room. A tray containing bathroom accouterments maintains the gray and white color theme.
A brilliant shade of turquoise tops the floating vanity in this powder room. Sea inspired glass art in the same shade of turquoise decorates the countertop and the open cabinets below. Colorful abstract art covers the sparkling gray walls for an extra splash of color to the palette.
Powder Room With Textured Accent Wall & Circular Mirror
A circular mirror with a rope hanger creates major impact in this small powder room — and adds a bit of a nautical flair. The tiled wall the same color as the side walls brings a subtle texture and heightened interest to the space. Clean lines throughout keep the room from feeling busy.
According to my rules, powder rooms are supposed to be fabulous! It’s the one public space that everyone visits privately, so I always strive to make a great impression. I love what an over sized piece of artwork does in a small space, and this is a big one. We did a simple strie faux finish on the walls and an always-chic Carrera marble on the vanity which we repeated for many of the surfaces throughout the home. Believe it or not, the mirror was the last item I sourced, and it was worth the hunt. It’s special, just like powder rooms should be.
