Metallic Powder Baths

As a lover of all things metallic, I was ecstatic to see Schumacher's newest wallpaper collection, Byzantium, include many metallic elements.  Byzantium, the legendary and magnificent crossroads connecting east and west, sets the scene for this collection of exquisitely printed wallcoverings.  Here are a few highlights (i.e. the prints that made my heart palpitate) from the collection:

Morocco:

Kasari Ikat:

Alcazba:

I am certain I will save my pennies to buy a roll of one of these beautiful wallpapers to put in my powder bath.  Right now I'm really adoring the kasari ikat.  How gorgeous would it look in a bathroom like this one:

See my powder bath inspiration after the jump!

Marbled walls and floor, silver gilded mirrors accenting the metallic wallpaper.  What a dream!  Those sconces are gorgeous, too.

In addition to metallics, I have always loved grass cloth wallpapers.  They can really warm up a space, especially when accented with wood:


Do you adore metallics as much as me?  Which bathroom is your favorite?  Don't forget to go check out the Byzantium collection on Shumacher!

  1. Wow, these made my heart palpitate as well! I'm in the market to buy an apartment and *love* that pale blue and gold ikat wallpaper. Also obsessed with that last bathroom, that mirror is awesome.

  2. Amazing inspiration! If I had a powder room, i'd def want the Kasari Ikat wallpapered all over - can't get any better than mint and gold!

  6. The Schumacher papers are way cool. I'm partial to metallic grasscloth myself and love the last bath pictured in your post above. My current metallic wallpaper obsession: Crezana's Liquid Metal Madagascar. Hoping to put the "mercury" in my dining room. Philip Jeffries has some really good metallic grasscloth options too.
