Casa Craving Recap: Powder Room Remodel

Last week, sandusa wrote me asking for advice on how to remodel her powder room. She was considering painting the room a deep plum color and maybe hanging a small chandelier, but was open to all ideas. So for the latest Casa Craving Challenge, I asked you to conjure up your decorating talents to help sandusa with this project.

You can see all of the Powder Room Remodel Casa Cravings here, as well as the great lists the users created. (TeamSugar has a great tutorial on listmaking if you're not sure how.)

Here are my favorite looks:

Look #1, by nikkeeb was full of black and white accessories, used to accent the deep plum color she chose. The room definitely had a French feel to it, although the Manuscrit rug she chose had a poem written in Catalan on it.

There are some other excellent rooms, so

Look #2 was designed by htiduj, who said: "I would use the damask wallpaper on the back wall, where the sink, mirror, and toilet go. Then, I would paint the rest of the room the lighter purple shade from the wallpaper and use what I call "shabby chic" tiles as the floor. I would also change the faucets to a nickel or chrome, so it's more matte, display the soaps and candle, use the darker purple towels for guests, and hang the interesting lighting fixture from the ceiling."

Look #3 was also designed by nikkeeb, and had a dark brown tone to it. She chose some great hardware pieces, dark wood furniture, and elegant glass bathroom jars.
