Powder Bathroom.


The powder bathroom was rather tiny and a bit beige upon purchase.


Through the renovation, we gained a little less than a foot of usable space, but those few inches made a large difference in the functionality of this small powder bathroom. To see a full explanation of the powder bathroom “expansion” please see this previous post: Basement and powder bath. 

Our powder bathroom is still small, but it is certainly no longer beige! I adore the graceful blue and white bell-like floral petals delicately suspended over a breathy gray background.




Below: This was our first bathroom for wall tile installation, and so it was important to take our time to turn our paper drawn diagram into physical reality. My adorable and bright husband created this diagram below; a diagram that held perfectly true and accurate throughout all of our bathroom tile installations! Please see this previous post for further information on the bathroom wall tiles: Happy Thanksgiving and Girls’ Bathroom!  And please review this post for the bathroom floors: A Glimpse: Bathroom Floors.

Thanks again to Golem Tile for these breathtaking tiles!
