So, at this point, you've welcomed your guests into your house and wined and dined them. Chances are they're wanting to use your facilities at this juncture. The powder bath is kind of like the wild card of the home. It's a little jewel box that you can do whatever the H E double hockey sticks you want with it and people won't think you've completely lost your marbles.
This PB is adorbs.com. While the powder bath is the most funnest (yeah, I said it) room in the house, it's also the itty bittiest.
Anatomy lesson #1: Maximize your real estate and mirror the living daylights out of your PB. Because really, everyone wants to watch themself as they use the loo.
Not done with this WC yet, lassies. I also adore the brass etagere snug in the corner. Too often is the powder bath void of accessories. Like that awkward glass of orange juice on the second shelf.
Anatomy lesson #2: Don't accessorize your powder with orange juice. Accessorize with monogrammed hand towels, live plants and loveliness.
Remember when I said the powder bath was a wild card that you could do whatever the H you wanted? Exhibit A.
Anatomy lesson #3: Really do something you love that you don't have enough guts to do anywhere else in your home. If you end up completely despising it, you didn't put that much of an investment into the space because of its itty bittiness. So, go wild and put up that magical dancing zebra Scalamandre wallpaper or in this case, anatomy and sea creature prints.

Yes, I'm going to be that girl and post a picture from a previously discussed home. Why? Because it's beautiful, and I can, and you're going to read about it anyway. So, there. When you add lacquer and a crazy collection of art, you've basically got yourself a winner winner chicken dinner in my heart valves.
Anatomy lesson #4: Put up so much artwork in your powder bath so you can snicker and make up elaborate stories about why your guest is taking so long in the bathroom and act like a catty witch on RHOBH even though you know they're just admiring your eclectic bizness.
Why, New Ravenna? WHY would you do such a thing to tile? How dare you make something to wretchedly gorgeous that everyone is going to want you? Cruelty.
Anatomy lesson #5: Invest in gorgeous tile so that your property value increases exponentially and you're able to rent out your powder bath to a worthy tenant. Just throw a hot plate and a pillow in there and you're cool. Totally up to code.
