Point me to the powder room ...

I'm not sure why that small guest bath is called a 'powder room.' My guess is that ladies would dash off to powder their nose for a little refresh. Actually, my powder room is the place that needs a refresh from floor to walls!

I came across the image above and fell 'head over heels' for every nook and cranny of this room designed by Eric Olsen. From the wood beam ceiling and pendant lighting to the graphic wallpaper, concrete sink and wall mounted faucet, the Italian word 'amore' keeps repeating in my head.

We have a similar inset for our sink as in each of these photos, so I can pretty much visualize how any of the looks could work at home. I know, I know ... the wallpaper is the lipstick that gives these rooms punch.

The architectural drawings married to the industrial finishes above are clever and attractive. But, what I really would enjoy is taking something with amazing 'bones' and creating a dream space. I'm up for a 'real' challenge ...

I'd really like to give the powder room in this abandoned manor house outside of Paris a little rehab. In someplace this beautiful, it wouldn't even be considered work! Now, where is that realtor?
