There’s a lot to admire about this classic powder room, from the parquet wood floors to the gold fixtures and floor-to-ceiling wood paneling. The designer’s attention to natural light especially enhances the space. Mirrors installed around the perimeter not only brighten the room by reflecting light, but also create the illusion of more windows.
Keep it simple. Although the wallpaper isn’t minimal, the pretty window film (used only on the bottom panes to maximize light) definitely leans toward the barely there category. It’s a marriage made in heaven. The unobtrusive window treatment lets the botanical wallpaper shine, while the wallpaper frames the window beautifully, allowing it to be a standout feature too.
Strive for cohesion. These shutters are brilliant for lots of reasons. They echo the lines of the subway tiles for an integrated look. They ensure that this on-the-tiny-side bathroom gets a luxe window treatment without impinging on the space. And they provide privacy while letting in light.
One of the most appealing things about this architectural and decor style is its flexibility. When it comes to applying this style in the bathroom, we’ve identified some essential elements in past stories — the use of wood, vintage lighting, repurposed furniture pieces and a stand-alone bathtub among them. These are all elements that would have been seen in old farmhouses.
