i don't share a ton of my client work here mostly because it takes so long to create a completed room that i feel like is worthy of pretty pictures. but i think this is a great little before and after that has simple changes that made a big difference. and is also very attainable for just about anyone! this client i've worked with for a long time and she recently asked me to help update her powder room. it wasn't a gut or anything, just a refresh. the house was built in the 1700s so we wanted to stay true to it's history as well as my client's taste. the only thing they asked for was book or map wallpaper and i can work with that!
before: peach walls and teeny tiny mirror. 😲
after: wallpaper, a much larger mirror, and a quartz countertop.
i suggested removing the existing wood countertop and backsplash in favor of a sleek white quartz which creates good contrast with the traditional cabinet. we opted for a vessel sink to gain some height and add some clean lines and a one-hole faucet since we were a little tight on space. and note the mixed metals!
there is a small coat closet that leads into the bathroom that we also papered and you can just barely see it in the reflection in the mirror.
in a perfect world i would have uninstalled the cabinet to have it painted and installed sconces but that was more involved than my client was comfortable with, which i understand. she is happy with the result and that's what matters most!
