little space, big pattern


Powder Rooms are  the perfect place to be a little daring when it comes to design.  Because these rooms are usually small and not often used everyday, they are a great place to try out an unusual finish or bold wall covering pattern.  For the Southern Living Tarpon Run Idea House, we decided to put this idea to work by covering the walls of a small Powder Room in a brightly patterned wall covering.  The aqua and citron colors recall those found elsewhere in the house.  The simple white base cabinet features one of our favorite details–a shaped ‘foot’ in place of a plain toe kick.  A slab of white Carrara marble supports a simple white china vessel sink.  This room is cheerful and a little unexpected–sure to put a smile on the faces of guests and the home’s occupants alike.
