You don't have to do a lot to update a powder room. The bathroom in the photo below could have easily been boring and drab, but the unique and intricate design work in the mirror and table made it seem less like a bathroom and more like an art gallery.
Start the redecorating process by finding one or two unique pieces (even it's as small as a delicate, hand-painted vase or a gold-framed mirror). Remember darker paints make areas look smaller, so if you're planning on repainting the walls, keep with a light palette and darker accents (like this navy blue rug).
Next, replace old, standard light fixtures (and the sink as well, if you're feeling ambitious) with modern pieces that resemble artistic design rather than functionality. The cascading beaded lamps in the photo below are both unique and elegant.
Finally, keep fresh flowers in your newly decorated room constantly, not only will it bring a whole new level of class to your home, it will brighten your day each and every time you walk that room.
|I love the gray walls and unique light fixture. The wooded counter adds an element of surprise to the room.|
