Powder Room Makeover – Before and After 06.17.15

comment & share

I’m happy to have one of the 4 areas I’ve been wanting to design in my house completed! The powder room is done and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I shared my inspiration and design plans for the room here. As I mentioned before, I wanted it to have a dark and elegant look with classic lines.  As much as I would have loved to put up that wall paper and have that custom sink, it was way out of my budget for the room. I knew I could get the same feel and look by taking elements that define the space and reintroducing them in a way that’s within my budget. That meant dark walls and gold accents along with classic lines. I love the transformation! 

As I mentioned before, the powder room is extremely small! So it was a challenge finding a pedestal sink that fit in the space with the lines I had in mind. The Kohler Memoires sink was perfect though! I love its elegant look and classic lines. I also came across The Kohler Purist faucet and instantly fell in love! This was my main splurge and I think it’s totally worth it. I love the finish and the lines and everything else about this faucet! I got it in the vibrant modern brushed gold finish. 

The toilet was also from the Memoirs series by Kohler. I stuck with the gold finish for the toilet paper holder as well as the towel ring. Love the quality + price on these! I got them both in the antique finish.

To a certain extent, I love mixing different design styles. Since everything in the bathroom boasted the classic traditional look, I wanted the art to be abstract and modern. I found this print on etsy and had it printed at my local printer.
