DM Project: Powder Room Before and After

My clients W had a funky little teeny powder room that they asked me to makeover.  I love small spaces- they are just begging for a fun wallpaper and that’s just what we did.  We also added a petite little wall-mount sink.  My clients had ripped out the previous sink before we came into the picture.  They told me it was much too large for the space.  Scale is so important in small places!

An addition turned a window in the powder into an awkward nook.  We wallpapered the nook, added glass shelves and filled them with candles and pretties.  

I’ve long loved Osborne and Little’s Asuka paper, so I was so glad my clients went for it in this space.  It has the perfect amount of shimmer.  A vintage mirror and black and white photography taken by my client completes the room.

I adore this little powder room now!

  1. Oooo, purty. You’d never get me out of there.

  2. Roxy

    it’s gorgeous, naomi!

  3. Good job photographing such a small space! It’s purty! Now excuse me while I go calculate the costs of removing the giant sink in my tiny bathroom.

    Great job! At first, I thought that was Caitlin Wilson’s wallpaper. I find myself wanting to see more photos. Please post an after shot that shows the area with the toilet. I cannot quite get the feel for the room with the shots all being so high above the floor. I love the niche and the way its reflection is centered in the mirror. Also, the way you made the switch plate invisible.

    I love that wallpaper in the small room! Great impact and makes it feel cozy instead of cramped. Great job!! I’m starting to love wallpaper for little nooks around the house, but after all the effort it is [still] taking to get this old junk from the 80s down, I’m not sure I have the heart for it!

  6. I bet with all that shine it makes the powder room look larger! so cute!

  7. Very clever to use that little nook for storage. It’s awkward no mo’. Hooray for clients who allow you to get fun with the wallpaper.

  8. Have always loved that paper and this was the perfect place for it! Yummy. I’m pinning this now!

  9. Erin

    I was second guessing my decision to paper our own powder room, but this is giving me the confidence to dewit.

    Awesome as always!

  10. Perfect example of how wallpaper can create drama in a small space. That bath will not go unnoticed now 🙂

  11. beautiful! great choice on the wallpaper – what a fun project 🙂 awesome job!

  12. Ashley

    Such style and impact in such a little space. Pretty, pretty!

  13. Love it. Do you have a source for the sink? Our itty bitty half bath is in need of a new one desperately.

  14. Gurrrl – the hits just keep on comin’! (and please do) 😉

  15. Just what I needed to wake my butt up this morning. The wallpaper was a great choice and the glass shelves are brillz. Love!

  16. you completely transformed that room – the nook is one of the best parts now. dm rocked this one out.
