Monday Morning Inspiration: Well-Styled Powder Rooms

I love a beautiful powder room.  Don't you?  Although the space is typically very minimal, there are endless options for styling it well.


A powder room is a great area to wallpaper.  Bold patterned wallpaper adds drama and compensates for a lack of furniture or space.  Plus, you won't tire of the wallpaper since the powder room is rarely used, except by guests.


Another way to add style to a guest bathroom is to decorate it as you would any other room- add a throw rug, hang a piece of art, or even add a fun ottoman!




Finally, add a little touch of style to your powder bath by adding fresh cut flowers and bathroom essentials in pretty jars.

How do you style your powder room?  What's inspiring you this Monday morning?

  1. I think this is one of the most important rooms to decorate well! No one wants to get ready in an ugly bathroom.

  2. HI Sam,
    Hope you had a good weekend! I did an Equestrian Style powder room years ago and am about ready to update the walls:

  11. Oooh I've often thought of doing a gallery wall in our powder room, but really, the wallpaper is what makes these rooms!

  12. IF I had a half bath in this hole in the wall apartment, I would most definitely use wallpaper... you're spot on about it being a great place to show off some amazing accessories, art, & wallpaper! I'd probably use an Amy Butler rug w/ some great collage of photos like shown in that first powder room. Then I'd probably (depending on what kind of counter is in there) sport the great invention of a counter "skirt"... easy to make & great for hiding goodies behind it (aka toilet paper, feminine products, towels, etc.) I think powder rooms are one of the most fun rooms in a home... you can have fun with it without it being too much in an entire room of your house! :) Happy Monday!

  22. Kind of the same idea as wallpaper...I painted my powder room a cranberry red color. It was the perfect place to do it, because as you said, it's rarely used, so I don't get tired of it.
