MA ResidenceTraditional Powder Room, Sydney
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Down-facing wall lights in the bathroom should be used in conjunction with other lights so shadows don’t get in the way. Unless, of course, you’re trying to create a darker, moodier space as one might in a powder room.
Balance with panellingThis powder room successfully boasts shimmering wallpaper to give the tiny room loads of personality and interest, but combines it with panelling around the lower part of the room. To help counterbalance the overpowering effect of the wallpaper’s golden colour and pearly finish, only half the room is papered – a dado rail separates the dark grey panelling from the glow above it. Note the simple choices for vanity, mirror and scones. The wallpaper should be the focus here, with everything else playing a supporting act.
Midas touchA bamboo motif on wallpaper speaks of style and substance but also reflects a fascination with the exotic. Gold highlights light up the space of this small powder room – note the addition of a golden bamboo frame around the mirror.Tamaki wallpaper: Romo
Gracefully twining foliage on metallic wallpaper gives a real lift to this powder room. Wainscoting panels in high-gloss paint and wallpaper to the ceiling elegantly expands the room by drawing the eye upwards.Samsara wallpaper in ‘Tamaki’ (French Grey): Romo
