Powder Rooms that Wow with Wallpaper

A powder room is just the place to pack a big punch when it comes to design and decorating. They’re so small that a little goes a long way and you can splurge on high-end fixtures and finishes. Moisture isn’t typically an issue so a show-stopping wallpaper is perfect in these tiny spaces. From florals to geometrics, we’ve gathered some amazing powder rooms to gaze at for some fresh inspiration.


1.Deco Delight

This vintage inspired powder room carries an Art Deco feel with the graphic mirror, chrome finishes, and open legged sink. The sharp edges are softened by the soft curves of the floral wallpaper. I love how the entire room strikes a good balance between the edges and bends. The wallpaper softens the room without being overly floral.

2. Regal Red

This gorgeous red room is decked out with panache. The wallpaper carries out the traditional theme with a trellis motif in a stately red. It serves as an understated background for the lavishly carved fixtures.
