I've always cringed at the terms "bathroom" and "washroom". They seem to do little justice to my favourite room in the house. They make it sound so one dimensional, and my relationship with our powder room has much more depth that that. I spend an inordinate amount of time there thanks to both my IBS and extreme commitment to vanity. Sure I might not always brush my hair, and I may often resemble something the cat threw up, but even that my friends takes time.
If we weren't currently leaking thousands on account of Doug's gambling problem (sounds much more glamourous than the truth and I'm confident he won't sue me for slander), we would be renovating our bathroom right now. Even so I have happily gazed at endless photo's of powder rooms in hopes of one day living the dream.
On my wish list is a claw foot tub, a pedestal sink, and glass tile that resembles running water. Doug and I saw this in a shop once and I swear we shed a tear it was so amazingly beautiful. I also dream of a white washed linoleum hard wood floor. I know, I know, it's a bold move. I like the look though, very french country chic. It's as country as I go in interior design.
So from me to you, some of the most lovely powder rooms I could find. As always I gravitate towards white and simplicity, but some of the more colourful ones in here definitely caught my eye. I love daring decorators and love some of the unique elements inside these rooms xo
