Mood Board Monday- Powder Bathroom!

Happy Monday, friends! Before I get to this mood board, I just have to let you know that my room at the Junior League of Detroit Show House is complete! Sound the trumpets!! It opens this weekend through October 4th, and you can find tickets HERE. All the rooms are a feast for the eyes and money goes to charity- doesn’t get any better than that! I hope if you’re local, you’ll come visit! I won’t necessarily be there every day all day (four kids learning from home and all), so if you get tickets, please let me know what day/time and I’ll try my best to be there to say hello!

So, this week I decided to play around with a mood board for a powder bathroom! I love designing small spaces because I think it’s a great chance to have a little fun…

Who’s got Monday blues?? See what I did there?;) Man, oh man, I love all these blues! Honestly, I started with the tile! I actually have big plans for this tile in a project coming up, but in black and white. When I saw it came in blue, I just had to put it in this mood board and design the whole bathroom around it!

With that tile on the floor, I thought it’d be great to have a coordinating, simple elongated subway tile partially up the wall…

Then my favorite part: wallpaper! Found this gorgeous whimsical mural HERE.

And because I LOVE bringing attention to the ceiling, I picked out Fiji by Benjamin Moore for that. Speaking of ceiling, next up came the lighting! My favorite thing to hunt for! I found this blue beaded chandelier and couldn’t resist it.

It could read as matchy matchy, which I’m typically not a fan of, but somehow going all blue in here just seemed downright fabulous. Again, I say there’s no rules for powder bathrooms- live a little!

I did, however, choose a metal finish for the wall sconce. I love a good contrast in materials, and since the chandelier is a warm wood texture, I wanted the sheen of metal and glass for the light on the wall.

Next up: the vanity! Yup, hunted down the perfect blue vanity. The gold touches sealed the deal…

Ok, let’s talk about this mirror. I’ve actually been eyeing it for months. The shape is amazing!

Last but not least, the art! When I pick out traditional paper, especially something nature-related, I tend to want to pair it with modern/abstract art. I have another painting by the artist (Mary Gaspar), and this piece of hers fit the bill…

There you have it, friends! What element is your favorite? What kind of room should I make a mood board for next?

Shop the room…

    I absolutely love the blue vanity with the gold hardware! I had my kitchen cabinets painted by a professional cabinet refinishing company a few months ago, and now I’m realizing that I need to update the bathroom cabinets too! This post gave me some encouragement to try to tackle the project myself. I bought a similar blue colored paint, and I’m looking forward to getting started! Do you have any suggestions on where I can purchase the modern gold hardware?
