Guest Powder Room Inspiration

  • 27 September 2018

Many new build plans are now including Guest Powder Rooms. They are a fantastic opportunity to go a little wild.

You can forget all the practical restrictions that the main bathroom and ensuite will command, no steam to worry about, limited storage will be required … basically it just has to be pretty! As a space you nip in and out of you won’t tire of a bold statement decision. How do I achieve all that I hear you ask, the answer is simple ……..WALLPAPER.

The Powder Room is a tiny space that should pack a big punch, think about not only the vanity but the mirror, and the lighting. Surprise and delight your guests with pattern and colour, are you bright and cheerful or dark and moody..

 

I have found these little beauties on Pinterest, saved to my bathroom board for further info.

 

Harlequin Amazilia

  • 17 March 2015

Amazilia is the stunning newly released collection from Harlequin very aptly named as it is indeed  Amazing!

Described as  “Featuring extravagant tropical motifs in exotic colourways, delicately depicting hummingbirds, botanically-drawn butterflies, feathers and glossy over sized leaves”  it is a typical Harlequin explosion of colour.

Only with the use of Digital print  technology  can fabrics show such intricate realistic details and vibrant colours. It’s nigh on impossible for me to pick a favorite –  I’m a bird girl so many of the designs delight me, BUT if I had to narrow it down…..

The Spray Dyed Velvet is incredible, the intensity and shade of colour changes across the width of the fabric subtly drifting from one colour to another, the warmer of the 8 available colourways are seemingly on fire.

I can’t resist anything to do with birds – I have an every growing collection of nests and feathers in my office so the Limosa wallpaper is a given for me.  Available  in 5 colour ways I love the water colour effect of the image and the multitude of colour you can pull out as coordinating shades. The proportion of space verses pattern is well balanced and restful.

A slight shift in wallpaper trends is underway. This stunning Harlequin paper is a great example. Patterns are becoming smaller creating a subtle background to an Interior rather than the bold single feature walls we have become accustomed to.  These new wallpaper patterns are small enough to use on every wall of a room.  It’s a nice change!
