I am always glad to meet clients who have inspired ideas about what they want to accomplish with a room. This client knew that powder rooms are a good place to implement a little more pizzaz than one might put in a regular bathroom.
This powder room started out as a typical powder room. The possibilities are endless with a blank canvas.
She had experimented with some different glazes on the walls.
But couldn’t find the look she wanted. In the end she decided on a classic stencil to go with the style of the wainscoting. We used a metallic/pearl glaze to fill in the stencil and I think it was absolutely the right decision.
This transformation goes to show that a little bit of trial and error goes a long way in finding the right finish for a room that is a blank canvas. However, she wasn’t finished with just stenciling the walls.
She decided that the ceiling was the perfect place to put silver leaf and I couldn’t agree more! The silver leaf picked up the sheen of the metallic/pearl glaze in the stencil and put some beautiful bling in this classic powder room.
Don’t be afraid to go a little fancy in a powder room. It can be a great place to try new and different finishes.
