When we moved into this house I loved the powder room tile so much! The floor is a marble hex and the marble continues half way up the wall in rectangles mimicing a wainscoting sort of feel. It’s really stunning and exactly what I would’ve done too. The rest of the room though felt really disjointed to me. The toilet and vanity were very modern looking and the vanity was also a dark brown (we know I love white and bright). Neither were my taste and I didn’t feel they suited the classic feel of the tile at all. The room was also wallpapered and really, it just wasn’t my style. In addition… the ceiling was painted yellow haha!. So I knew I wanted to keep the marble but update the rest of the small room to suit our style more.
Here is a photo of what the room looked like when it was listed for sale and basically what it looked like when we moved in (minus the art).
The first thing we did was update the toilet and the vanity to the ones below. I love the toilet we chose and its my very favourite toilet (I know, who knew you could have a favourite toilet but its really so pretty). The vanity we chose I really liked as it has a really pretty white stone counter and I loved the open shelving and slates at the bottom. Next we removed the mirror and I ordered the round black mirror below for the room (it arrives this week!)
I’ve also changed the faucet to this more traditional one (and here’s a tiny sneak peek at what it’s starting to look like!)
I plan to add wallpaper again to the room and this is the one I plan to order. It’s the prettiest wallpaper I think I’ve ever seen.

I just need to decide on lighting for the room. The room doesn’t have a window but I really want to do a single sconce above the mirror, so fingers crossed it doesn’t leave the room too dark.
So thats the plan for the room and the progress we’ve made so far. Im hoping we can finish it off before the new year (if I write it down here, maybe Ill hold us accountable to it haha). I can picture it all together and I’m so excited and can’t wait to show you the final reveal!
