Updated Classics: Patterned Powder Rooms
Discover fresh alternatives to popular design trends in our online series, Updated Classics.
Classic Pick: Despite a powder room’s petite size, a bold wall design, like the thick stripes seen here, is a smart way to give the small space presence. Layered details, like an ornate mirror, artwork and countertop accessories, add character to the modern stripes. Deep drawers and straw basket offer plenty of stylish storage.
Fresh Spin: A splatter-style dotted wallpaper by Télio, lively blue trim and bird fabric combine to keep things youthful and fun. Using the patterned wallpaper on the walls and on the ceiling lets the full impact of the pattern take centerstage, while the open-plumbing vanity and heritage-style taps bring some order to the abstract design.
