{Jewelry Box} Powder Room

When I first saw this powder room, I must admit I was out of my comfort zone. It was painted a gorgeous jewel tone blue/green color, and the ceiling a metallic silver.  I have to say, it looked pretty awesome, but it was a far stretch from the whites and neutrals color scheme I tend to stick to. But I was completely looking forward to the challenge of brightening the space up and finishing it.

At our first meeting, my client mentioned she wanted this room to look like a jewelry box.  She definitely was on the right track with the silver ceiling and silver sconces.  The blue wall color really makes all the silver pop.  However, the blue was a little dark and we decided the room needed to be lighted up with some decorative accents and accessories.

There was already a pretty oval mirror in place, but I knew we could get away with a extra tall mirror, as the ceilings are so high.  A tall mirror creates a dramatic focal point and it also helps brighten things up.  

The room has a large empty wall, and we originally discussed the idea of hanging multiple vintage mirrors here.  However, we decided put up a large gallery wall with some beautiful botanical prints in mirrored frames.  She also has this great piece of artwork that was painted by a family member, and I knew I wanted to incorporate it somehow.  The blue tones in it pull out the wall color perfectly, and the yellow background contrasts nicely.  We had the canvas framed in a simple white frame to finish the piece.  A large white pitcher with some faux willow plants are placed on a large shelf, and also accent the high ceiling.

Here is the inspiration board for this {Jewelry Box} Powder Room.  I can't wait to show you the finished room very, very soon!  Stay tuned.
