Powder Room Makeover

When I was back in Atlanta a few weeks ago, my mom & I were discussing what upcoming fall projects she wants to do around the house. One room that is driving her nuts is her main hall powder room. It’s the go-to powder room that all guests use, so it’s definitely seen on a regular basis. The room is currently painted red with a {somewhat new} ivory tile floor, a granite vanity top & gold hardware. It was a room that she experimented with in the early 2000’s and she is O-V-E-R it. It’s dated and begging for an update. While a full renovation isn’t in the books, there’s no reason we can’t change a few key pieces and totally modernize this space!

One thing we both agreed on is that the bathroom is a great place to take design risks. It’s small, with minimal lighting, but we want to go bold. Why not? Enter Benjamin Moore’s Hale Navy. I just LOVE this color. It’s like a lightened midnight blue with a grey undertone. I’ve pulled some examples of this color in various bathrooms so you can see it in all light:



How fabulous is this shade of navy?! I cannot wait to see it in the room. It has the perfect amount of “pop” against the white molding & gold toned hardware…

So without further adieu, here is the design plan I’ve created for her. I opted for an infinity mirror to avoid too much hardware. I think with the light fixture, current gold faucet & hardware, it’s enough gold. Also, I really want to enlarge a few of my parents’ own photographs into these frames. They’ve traveled the world & have some seriously gorgeous nature photos. (Side note: I’ve decided to omit a decorative rug, as a 2×3 is all that can fit and I worry that it makes the space look too busy.)

Bonus: This entire update is under $500 ~ is that amazing or what?!?!

Well, what do you think?! Feedback welcome 🙂
