Thank you so much for your wonderful blog! I eat it up like chocolate.
My last email got lost last year so I have finished that remodel and
started on a new one : )
I am a first time home buyer and I have gutted out my kitchen, full
bath and now I have redone my powder room but I am not sure how to
complete it. I have included the items I would like to put in there
but thought I would run it by you first. I won't bog you down on how
it looked and how I changed it already but I am trying to go bold with
wallpaper (which I am scared of) but I am taking your advice on the
powder room. Now, should I do the whole wall, half way down, put a
chair molding, just use gray or white paint on the bottom below the
chair molding, help! : )
I only put a temporary vessel sink which you can see in the mirror
until I install the attached vessel sink because I was missing the
drain stopper on that one. I would like it to have a Victorian feel,
I think. I want to put a oval mirror with a silivery/gray ribbon at
the top to coincide with the color scheme. Lastly, I am looking for a complimentary piece of granite to replace the top of the sink. As
you can see, it was damaged and I got hundreds off of it, (yaah). How
should the shape of the granite be to compliemnt the vessel sink? The
faucet is a nickel finish and so are the sconces (I'm not really
loving the sconces though). I just had my contractor put them in and
tear out the one vanity light over the mirror temporarily.
Thank you so much,
Thank you for comparing my blog to chocolate- surely one of the highest compliments a girl could receive!
Let me give you a few tips for a beautiful powder bath:
First of all, attention to detail:

Notice the crystal in the little knobs? The embroidered towels? The tiny pleats in the cafe curtain? If you want to bring a real atmosphere into the room, you can't only have a Victorian feel in 50% of the elements of the room. Your gut was right on the sconces. Personally, I would not try to go toward "Victorian" unless you actually have a Victorian home. Your flooring is not Victorian, your wood trim is not Victorian, it's just too far of a stretch. How about we just try to dress it up, so the bathroom is more consistent with the console sink you purchased?
