Whenever I’m in a home, a hotel, or a nice restaurant, I often excuse myself to use the loo only to see how it’s been treated. I still remember all of my favorites with wishful thinking that I might return to see them again! They were that good.
I once meandered by a powder room with a cityscape wallpaper treatment and a collection of original oil portraits of kings. It was absolutely brilliant! I promised myself that day that I would never hold back precious pieces from a bathroom. What better place to capture someone’s attention and nod to the fact that even the BATHROOM is well-dressed!
So here I am today. Preaching of the importance of beautifying your bathrooms and the simple things that make this ordinary room somewhere where your guests will literally want to sit and stay awhile.
WALLPAPER I’m convinced everyone’s soul is lined in a wallpaper that describes them. Lucky for you, we have a myriad of options and it doesn’t take a lot to paste the place in a soul paper! Wallpaper is one of the best ways to add gumption to these little rooms and will become the jewel boxes of your home. Below are some of my favorites!
ART Like I mentioned before, art is a great way to add importance to a space. It’s unexpected and allows the walls to talk! Whether they are fine paintings, photographs, or simple quotes that allow one to ponder, art will allow every space in your home deem special. Especially the often forgotten bathroom.
Don’t forget the bathroom! Check back for part 2 of The Well-Dressed Bathroom!
