Powder room. A great place to start.

Typically Powder Rooms are the most used bathroom in the home.  I say why not make it great?  The biggest lesson that I have learned over the years is to commit to the space, 100%. Tile, molding,  fixtures, door hardware,  paint, fabric, wallpaper and lighting they should all interconnect to create a perfect jewelry box or a fabulous  "Jeannie's Bottle".  Once you let your imagination go and commit to your tiny space, you will be very pleased with the results!  I have turned cartoons, maps and fabric into a wallpaper, made my own lighting when I did not find the perfect fixture, just to name a few. It's the unexpected things that make powder rooms so great.

Bathroom accessories are important to add texture and another dimension to the space. Personally, I love to have great linens for all to use, but when you have a house full of guests, printed paper hostess napkins in a lacquered box is a nice touch.  Do not forget to put out a sprig of flowers in a small vase. I often will use something that I picked up at a flea market. Dig through your china cupboard for a pretty china plate for guest soaps.  Here are a few staples that are great to have on hand: Pretty guest soaps that I leave wrapped because they look like little presents!  

Embroidered Linen  Hand Towels are so sweet to have hanging for guests, and I often like to use a silver cup for flowers or pretty vintage china dish for hand soaps. All these things add up to a pretty powder room that you and your guest will love.  

If you have never seen I dream of Jeannie or want to go down memory lane here is a link for the entire show!  I bought it for my daughter for her stocking!
