Powder Room Pairs

My friend Marni and I are at it again.  After looking at rug options to mix with zebra, she ended up ordering the bright orange dining chairs from one of my boards, and the living space is coming together.

Next up: the teensy tiny powder room off her kitchen.  We had already chosen the wallpaper.

And Marni found this modern, teeny tiny sink.

Then it was up to me to dress it up with mirrors and sconces.

I gave her a lot of choices.  Really.  So many that I edited them down for you guys.  I don't know why, but I keep going crazy on options for Marni.  Maybe because I'm helping her for free, so the clock's not running and I feel like I can just play, play, play without necessarily coming up with THE ONE.  Maybe it's because I'm pretending I'm doing my own house but with a better budget.

At any rate, the goods.

While I generally think you can mix metals just fine, in here we had some extra leeway because the wallpaper is a chartreuse flock on a silvery metallic background, so really you have your gold and your silver already.  The one thing I would NOT do with those chrome sink fittings would be a shiny polished brass or gold--competing shine.  Everything I chose in gold has some kind of distressed or aged finish happening.

Any favorites?


  1. How cute is that sink? And I love the wallpaper. Can't wait to see end results. xoxo

  2. My favorites are the top and bottom far right. Those are the kind of delicious, let-loose mirrors that you can do in a tiny powder room.

  3. I love the wallpaper, the first mirror is speaking to me, just pops a little more against the print I think...i'm sure whatever the final verdict is it will be fab :)

  4. Call me crazy, but I like the combination of the very sleek sink against a more ornate mirror (specifically, the top right mirror). It feels unexpected that way.


Let me know what you think. I love hearing from you!
