Magical Powder Rooms

While we love the clean lines of a polished and sleek bathroom without a lot of distraction, we love the magical effect that wallpaper can give a small and intimate powder room.  Another way to dress up this room is by the lighting and the mirrors on the wall.  Add some personality from these three elements and you have the perfect bathroom.  The smaller the better for these powder rooms.  This bathroom will be utilized by guests when entertaining, it is the room that makes you feel pretty when you run into it to fix your lipstick before a big night out, where you have lovely monogrammed finger towels, room spray and pretty soap in soap dishes.  It is the room you love to dress up for guests so they feel special!

These are all stunning -- particularly love the Elizabeth Dinkel room (hadn't seen it before so it's definitely going into my inspiration files!).

I love the look of wallpaper in a powder room. I think I've even decided on the one I want for our new home!

Powder rooms are the perfect rooms for something unexpected! And an inexpensive place to add wallpaper.

Great examples! Powder rooms are like little jewelry boxes...the mirrors, the lighting and the wallpapering options are what make small spaces magical.

All of these would make me feel special.. :)
Though the 'Atlanta Homes' one would make me not want to leave the powder room.. Fabulous on all accounts!

What do you like on the walls of a bathroom? I am remodeling and thinking about some faux work(strie'?). I have had wallpaper curl in bathrooms where a shower is used regularly.
