You know, the room that you're never quite happy with? It has issues and you just want to keep the door closed and not let anyone see it? Well, THAT room in my house is the powder room.
Here it is in it's current state (to see the "before" pics click here). We don't want to remodel it because this isn't our forever home and it's perfectly functional. So, any changes that can be made have to be purely cosmetic (and not expensive!).
It's painted BM Palladium blue (which I actually really love) and has a mishmash of every metal finish under the sun.
There is a small shower which you can's see that has a brass/frosted glass door that I'm trying to work around. I'm contemplating whether or not I should paint this existing light fixture gold or just scrap it and buy a different one. Call me crazy, but think it looks like the mirror has "antlers" with this light fixture above it, so it's bothering me.
I painted this tiered shelf (which is where I store towels and other things for guests) an antique gold to try to tie in the brass details.
I found some adorable hooks from Anthropologie to add some whimsy to the room. We often end up hanging wet swimsuits and beach towels in this bathroom, so these hooks come in handy.
I also dressed up an inexpensive plain white roman shade with some fuschia greek key trim. It didn't take more than an hour of time and some Fabri-Tac. But, with all of these small details, I'm still missing that much needed "pop" in this room. Something that pulls everything together.
I can't stop obsessing about this sweet bathroom (source unknown - if you know, please let me know). Is wallpaper the answer - I don't know? What do you think? Do you have a room like this that just has you stumped??
Edit: the photo above is via here and the wallpaper is Waverly shown below. Gorgeous! I smell a new project in my future.
