Week two of our One Room Challenge got a bit messy! With the help of one of our GFA project managers, we got through all of the demo, – who knew destruction would make us so happy! (Goodbye, brown toilet—for real this time!) It’s like a fresh canvas waiting for a bold, aubergine masterpiece!
Since we’re waiting to wallpaper until all of the wainscoting is installed, we left the mural, but aside from that, we were at bare bone status.
Before we dive into the next stage of installation and selections, I wanted to share some of the inspiration I’m using for this space. I already told you all about my purple obsession, but I haven’t shared some of the spaces that contain elements I totally covet for my powder room.
First, L’Espace Tranquille by Julie Rootes Interior Design. Aside from the fact that this space is absolutely stunning, I’m in love with the minor details. The shape of the gold sconces is unique – and the painted ceiling adds an unexpected pop. Also, that shower door!
I have to acknowledge the sink in this Mt Baker Classic powder room by Lisa Stanton. The marble veining is everything! It’s another thing that I sort of touched on in the last post, and why I want to use the Milas Lilac from Tile Shop, because the movement is just so unique and raises the overall luxury factor. I’m also obsessed with this walnut wainscoting. I don’t plan on using walnut in my tiny powder room but I really like the height of this wainscot – I have been trying to figure out what height will work for my bathroom, and how it should interact with the mirror. I find anything too short to look cheap and unfinished.
This Charolette Moss lilac inspired bathroom, need I say more? The vanity itself is a little too fancy for my house, but I appreciate it. That tassel!
So here’s my material board so far. I still need to choose a marble top, paint color for our ceiling, and which tile I will be choosing from the Milas Lilac line. You’re already acquainted with my favorite wallpaper, Limerence Rose from House of Hackney, but I also would like to incorporate this linen from Thibaut for a window treatment (so peepers can’t sneak up on my husband using the toilet) The corbel is one of a pair I found at Olde Good things that I would like to somehow incorporate into the bathroom design, it matches the mint in the wallpaper so nicely. Maybe a shelf over the toilet? We shall see!
Next up – tiling and finalizing the wainscoting design! I’ll see you next week, but if you get bored before then, check out the ORC blog and visit some of the other designers!
