Oh Joy! Builds A House: Vintage-Inspired Powder Room!

Guys, it's very possible that I love bathrooms SO much because I'm about to show you a peek at another bathroom design that I am working on for my house with Cleo and her team at Project M+. I'm in the midst of toilets, sinks, and tiles a plenty, as we have finalized ALL of our bathroom designs before our main living spaces because all of those installed items (tiles, toilets, sinks, faucets, etc.) need to be ordered so much further in advance than furniture pieces. Here's a look at this vintage-inspired powder room...

We were inspired by vintage eras (60's mod and art nouveau) for this as well as European modern touches. I love seeking inspiration not just from homes but from others spaces like restaurants, hotels, and retail shops. Here are a couple from Senato Hotel in Milan (left) and a hair salon, Salon Delphine Courteille, in Paris (right, designed by Chloé Negre).

We've been calling this powder room "a little jewel box with some vintage-inspired touches". Wallpaper is key for me, as we plan to use it throughout the house. But there are places where you want to go classic with it, and some places where you can really go bold. Since this bathroom is small and simple in structure, it allowed us the opportunity to go bold with the wallpaper to set the tone of the room. Here's a look at some of the materials we're using...

1. Wallpaper option by Calico (see the others below), 2. Brass toilet lever from Wayfair, 3. Brass inlay cement tile floor by Tabarka Studio,  4. countertop from Caesarstone, 5. Brass pull for the vanity by Emtek. Plus a toilet and sink from Wayfair, Brass plumbing fixtures by Newport Brass from Ferguson, arched mirror from Rejuvanation, and sconce by Cedar & Moss all shown below.
