Something To Talk About in the Loo

This modern little powder room was previously a vicious red – my client thinks it was called “Satan Red.”  I haven’t been able to find a paint named that, but  she swears that’s what it was named when it was painted a decade ago!  Well, now it’s painted a much friendlier Sherwin Williams’ Tupelo Tree.

A powder room can be a great place to showcase an interesting grouping of art.  This client has lots of really cool modern pieces like the ones we hung on this wall.

I think it’s great and adds important wall texture! 🙂

Love it. Way back in the 1970s, I had “art” in my bathroom, the only one among my friends who did. Always had interesting items hung, such as framed poems on the wall to read and famous quotes written with stencils, in my bathrooms, to which I put as much attention to detail as I did to any other space, and still do. I’d highly recommend everybody doing the same, with your fine example as a starting point, of course!

Love your blog. It’s such a pick-me-up, each and every day.

I love art groupings in the bathroom! Some of my favorite pieces are in my powder room. People always make a comment or ask where those pieces came from–so much that it’s made me want to move them in another room where I can enjoy them more. But that’s just plain selfish!! 😉

It’s a great place to showcase something, and it’s a nice change from the typical nautical themes. A friend of mine has decorated her powder room with scripture signs. I know they are kind of a “dime-a-dozen” fad at Hobby Lobby, but each scripture has meaning and it is actually very nice. The ceiling is very high and the walls are bead board, not quite to the ceiling, and she has the signs resting on top of the bead board circling the room. The vanity is an antique dresser with a nice big bowl sink. So it all goes together very well, with a modern touch rather than screaming “country”. It’s an encouraging room to be in. 😉

I love that arrangement and the artwork. I’ll have to think about that for my bathroom.

I really like creating interest in a bathroom. I think it’s a nice pleasant surprise for the occupant 🙂

I love this idea and do it all the time! Speaking of time…one more thing I always add to my bathroom walls is a clock. I like to find ones with interesting style and shape, and they look great mixed in with some art or just hung by themselves. Not sure why I must know the time while I am in there…perhaps it comes from being the baby of a 5 child family, growing up in a home with just two loos!

Generally, love this look. However, I would never apply green paint to any bathroom where one might apply makeup, as it skews the lighting. It’s just not flattering to skintones!

Your art grouping and paint colors are great. Much better than “devil’s blood” or whatever the old color was called. Since the space is usually so small, I am more daring with paint colors there…but not by much. Call me “nancy neutral”! Bathrooms should certainly have art! Especially since guests go there as well. Most importantly, they should be clean.
Best wishes,
Barbara
