Week 2 I snuck up because of I started late. 😉 But I’ve finished my design plan, and I’m ready to start this powder bathroom makeover!
But first, let’s talk about inspiration!
I’m no stranger to dark, moody paint colors, but I’ve never played with anything in the plum/purple family. But I’ve been really drawn to these colors for a while now, and this little powder room feels like the absolute perfect place to get creative with a new crayon for me. 😉 I haven’t decided on the exact shade/paint color I’ll be using yet, but I’ve narrowed it down to two different options.
My plan is to do something similar to this, using white subway tiles from the base to the chair rail and then paint the rest of the walls in a gorgeous plum/lilac.
But I want to add a little decorative detail to the tiles with this Black Ceramic Pencil TemplateSimilar to this beautiful bathroom.
But instead of using a decorative ceramic crown, I’ll keep it simple to better flow with the clean lined moldings we have throughout our house. I like the idea of using double tape with a pencil template maybe one on top and one row down………
……. or two rows down. Do you have a preference? I’m leaning toward the bottom two row layout at the moment, but I’ll make that a decision about match time. I’m more of a visual person and I really need to see things come together in a space. This is why I don’t do a lot of visual mood boards. I just like to touch, feel, and see samples in the room I’m working on before making decisions.
I look forward to getting started! And I love that I have enough subway tiles left since we built this house (we used subway tiles In the kitchen and three bathrooms) This would basically be a free project! Plus I love my phone call at home. Using repetitive elements throughout the house, but changing them very slightly, can create continuity and make all spaces feel connected, even if each has its own character.
And speaking of callback, I also have enough wallpaper left from library ceiling To do this bathroom powder ceiling! I can’t wait to see how this paper warms up and returns much-needed light to the small, windowless powder room. Paired with delicious plum walls, it will bring in some major drama, and I’m here for it! The powder room is the perfect place to play with design, and that’s exactly what I intend to do! This would be so much fun!
I also have some vintage items on my hunting list, a DIY art project I’m planning on doing, and a couple of other small changes I plan to make here over the next few weeks! Stay in touch! Please let me know if you have any questions!
