It comes down to an inherent simplicity, which perhaps explains why blue and white inhabit so many decorating icons: Think spatterware and spongeware; Blue Willow china and Wedgwood. And we never tire of the fabrics, from elegant toile de Jouy to crisp ticking to humble flour-sack stripes.
Antique Details Add Distinction
An absence of built-in cabinetry carries the theme of Old World charm into the bathroom. For storage, an armoire fronted with chicken wire lets contents breathe — a big plus in a humid room. A small sterling-silver Edwardian purse dangles from the door handle.
For quick and easy installation, try sheets of smaller tiles, like these two-inch tiles, found here in one-foot square sheets.
Exposed chimney bricks act as foils for the coolness of the color scheme and the sleekness of the metal furniture.
Both the dresser and cabinet not only provide loads of storage, but unlike built-ins, they can be repurposed and rearranged when needed.
Materials of various pedigrees, such as a gilded mirror frame and an old, oxidized faucet, harmonize nicely.
Bathroom Display Shelf
Add shelving to your powder room to hold pretty toiletries. Remove the back of an old wine crate or wooden box. Make shelves to fit inside the box, then add a bit of glamour by fastening a gilded frame onto the front of the unit. For an antique finish, spray-paint with Krylon Crystal Color.
