One Room Challenge – Week 2

The One Room Challenge has really lit the fire to get this powder room done! We knew we wanted to do wallpaper in the space, and after looking at approximately 3217 options over the last six months, we landed on these 4 finalists…

  1. Katie Ridder Leaf Wallpaper
  2. Galbraith and Paul Pomegranate Wallpaper
  3. Phillip Jeffries Pewter Hemp Wallpaper
  4. Galbraith and Paul Tusk Wallpaper

Although my mom and I both love a grasscloth wallpaper, since she already has this (in another color) in her living room, we had to let that one go. And the other two, including that gorgeous Katie Ridder wallpaper, just weren’t the right scale. Ultimately, we both fell in love with the Galbraith and Paul Pomegranate wallpaper in dusk!!! It is the right amount of pattern and will look great with white marble and a wood vanity!

Here is the final inspiration boardΒ for the space…

So beautiful – classic and current! Just what we were going for.

This week, the marble tile was installed. In all transparency, we ordered the tile a few weeks ago, which is why we could have it installed already!!! We previously selected a beautiful white marble called “Michelangelo”… I love this marble for the space because it has subtle grey veining with a *hint* of warmth which would tie back nicely to the wallpaper! But I knew I wanted a little detail, so I found this lovely New Ravenna mosaic that I had the Tiler cut it only 2 squares across and do a border about 4” offset from the wall.

Next week I’llΒ talk about the custom vanity design,Β and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that my wallpaper-er has a cancellation in his schedule the next few weeks!!!
