Oh Joy Studio Reveal: Celestial-Inspired Powder Room

My next reveal is small guest powder room that sits within the main space of our studio. Come see all the details…

It’s crazy that it was TWO YEARS AGO that I shared the inspiration for this half bathroom having no idea it would take so long for you to finally see it! This is a small guest bathroom that sits within the main space of our studio. Come see all the details…

Here’s a look above at the materials of the space. It’s truly full of glimmering pieces that make this small room shine like the night sky.

It’s no secret that I’m a wallpaper fiend, and this small powder room was the perfect canvas for this truly unique and celestial wallpaper by Calico. The gold mixed into the jewel tones is so stunning and really shimmers in the light.

The Details
Details were such a big part of all of the rooms, but especially in a small room like this where the costs to add another element were lower simply due to the limited space. For example, Cleo has the idea to paint the ceiling with this iridescent periwinkle paint by Portola in order to add another dimension to the wall. A solid white ceiling wouldn’t have tied it all together like this color does. It ties into the wallpaper while adding another type of shimmer to the room.

For a guest bath, having an easily-accessible place for the hand towels is important. Plus, it can’t hurt to have a hook behind the door or somewhere else in the room for a place to hang a purse or extra clothes.

Floor Tile
I’ve always loved the brass inlay tiles from Tabarka, but they aren’t cheap. So we chose to use it in this room with it’s small square footage. And, because this room doesn’t get any water exposure (like a full bath would), the tile will hold up really nicely here.
