Happy New Year! It’s been some time since I last posted, but I’m back today and couldn’t be more excited to share this transformation with you. If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen some sneak peeks of this powder room refresh at our Fox Hollow Traditional project. We had it mostly completed before the holidays, but just finished installing the last few finishing touches this week and it’s hard to believe it’s even the same space!
My clients hadn’t really touched the space since they moved into the house and wanted a quick and simple way to breath some life and light into the dark and heavy room. To keep it relatively pain-free and budget-friendly, we kept the existing vanity and plumbing fixtures, gave the whole room a fresh coat of paint, and made some simple, but transformative, decor swaps. The result is a beautiful, traditional powder room design that is light, clean and polished with a timeless appeal that easily fits with the decor in the rest of the home.
The first step was getting rid of the dark blue walls, which were actually stenciled! After a good bit of priming, we painted the room in Benjamin Moore Classic Gray – a light and bright barely there gray that has enough warmth to pair well with the rich wood tones of the floor and vanity. Originally, we planned to pump up the design with a bold bone inlay mirror. But when the mirror arrived the color was way more teal than the french blue we thought we were getting and we knew it just wouldn’t be the look we were going for. After a quick trip to HomeGoods, I found this beaded beauty and we all agreed we loved the classic and high-end look it added. The beautiful Caitlin Wilson rug (a flat weave indoor/outdoor the can handle messy shoes and sink splashes from the kids) added some texture, color and a further dose of sophistication to the room.
We changed out the existing light fixture with a pretty triple sconce in an aged brass finish, which has to be my favorite part of the design. For one, adding brass into the mix created more visual interest and, two, this light looks much more expensive than the steal it is! All of the art pieces were surprise HomeGoods finds. A preserved boxwood topiary gives the room a fresh feel and is a great alternative when you don’t have the light for a real houseplant. The small ginger jar is from the blue and white collection at High Street Market, one of my favorite decor shops.
I love how this traditional powder room all came together – and most importantly – so did my clients. It’s the perfect reminder that even a simple refresh can be just what you need to get a whole new look.
