Powder Room with POP!

I wanted to to add some WOW to a client's boring powder room, as you know from past posts I love bold colors in powder rooms!

This powder room had been originally faux painted probably 10ish years ago and it just felt old and tired in there.  Also, look at the dinky sink and toilet, that is not an illusion, they really were....I felt like a giant in there.


Soooo bye bye booorrinnnng and dated....


And hello Azure Blue.....Don't you just love that name....Conjurs up a vacation on a tropical island for me....


Since we carried the new hardwoods into this powder room, I really wanted to carry that richness into the vanity.....Doesn't it look beautiful against that Azure blue?


No more white toilet...I actually first got a white toilet for the powder room and the client hated it.  So we ended up with this one, they win, I think it was a beautiful choice with the travertine sink and countertop.


This isn't just some ordinary flat paint color, it's a LusterStone, (which is sooo hard to capture the true beauty of it by camera but here is the ceiling)...See how the light reflects off of it?


Quick Tip: When painting your own powder rooms ALWAYS do your ceilings, it makes all the difference.  

Only the true diehard do-it-yourselfers should attempt this...I had my professional faux painter do this room.  But if you must here is a how to.

My client's cross looks beautiful on the wall, whether in the dark but most definitely in the light. :)

In the Dark

In the light

This color always makes me feel like I had a mini vacation, I love it!  Sooo happy that the client let me make a bold choice in their powder and of course they have no regrets...It's actually a popular visiting spot now. ;)

Wow, I've never heard of a powder room but you definitely brought it to life with that beautiful shade of blue. Every job you do is amazing. Have a fantastic SITS day.

I love the sink! This is shaped exactly like the bathroom in our old home, which we're using as a rental property. I never knew it was supposed to be called a powder room :) Sounds much fancier than "the downstairs bathroom." Gorgeous! I would love to change ours up some to look this good!
