Today I am sharing a little update on the littlest room in the new house. The first time I laid eyes on it, I thought it had so much potential. I am now realizing that I should have taken more photographs of the before, but I am pretty sure I didn’t because I wanted to forget it (I am not even sure how to describe the paint color other that “dirt smear”).
Here is my powder room before and after:
Here are the afters:
Mirror: Serena & Lily. Paint: Benjamin Moore Stone White. Painting: Pallette Pro. Facuet: Rejuvenation. Towel Bar: Rejuvenation. Toilet Paper Holder: Rejuvenation. Art: Max Wagner. Diffuser: Old (similar here). Roman shade: Aspect Creative Agency. Towel: Matouk. Lighting Fixutre: Young House Love for Shades of Light. Rug: Caitlin Wilson.
Some say that paint changes everything, and I am one of those people. Paint changes everything. I knew when I saw this powder room that I had to have it sprayed because of the intricate wood paneling details, and I knew it had to be white but not white. The color I chose makes my heart sing every time I look at it. While I was in the process of designing the house, I had started to love the idea of playing up some of the existing finishes that weren’t necessarily what I would choose if I were starting from scratch. I love the look of lived-in and storied, so I kept the existing marble flooring and the existing pedestal sink and swapped out the hardware and mirror for a modern twist without gutting the entire powder room, and I adore how it turned out. I already had this print and this rug from our last home (I moved it out of the butler’s pantry and I am still searching for a larger one I love for that room). I also got rid of the dated light fixture and had this one, designed by the first decor bloggers I ever loved (hi Sherri and John!) because it was the perfect marriage of modern and 1940’s period style (which is when our house was built). It’s the circle of life.
