One Room Challenge | The Reveal | Modern-Traditional Powder Room

Seven weeks, fourteen hours of wallpapering, two turkish rugs and it's all finally over! The One Room Challenge is in the books and I'm so excited to share our completed powder room with you guys today. 

I'm so happy with how everything turned out! It took this space from basic to filled with pattern and interest and so many elevated details.

The wallpaper was definitely the right choice. I love the watercolor texture and the modern pattern that's also so timeless. It just took the whole space to a new level and is the perfect backdrop for the rest of the elements.

Just to remind you, here is where we started.

The room is not terribly small as far as half baths go, so I was able to add a shelf in this open area. I wanted it to be really simple so it didn't compete with the other elements in the room, so it's the simple metal and glass Vittsjo from IKEA.

I kept the styling light and airy so it didn't feel cluttered, with a few bathroom staples and containers for storage.

It's all in the details and this textured planter is one of my favorite little touches.

My very favorite element might be the mirror. It is so unique and elegant, but still very modern.

I was so happy to find this little lemon cypress topiary at Lowe's which really added a lot of life to the vanity. 

This room is not tiny but is still small enough that it's a bit of a challenge to photograph. It was hard to get in the shots but I absolutely love how this rug ties everything together. The subtle pops of pink elsewhere are brought through in the rug, and I love being able to incorporate a vintage piece into the room.

I hadn't really planned to incorporate pink into the room until I found this artwork from Minted, which I absolutely adore!

I chose two pieces from the same artist that would compliment each other and bring through the charcoal palette.

Again, the details are my favorite part of decorating, and the little brass stripe on this marble soap dispenser is just perfect with the brass corners on the mirror. And how about the texture on that vase? It was part of several things I found 75% off at Kneader's Bakery of all places!

And the light. I know I already shared about it in previous weeks, but it's just such a statement. 

We absolutely love our new space, and even though it was quite the whirlwind over seven weeks, it was so worth it! It's so gratifying to see a space so transformed and it makes me want to join the ORC again in the spring! Maybe just no wallpaper next time ; )
