Stylish Setting - Adding a Special touch to the smallest room in the house

We have a small bathroom downstairs called the 'Powder Room' on our house plans.  Basically it's the loo that your guests use.  As it is the one room in your house where your visitors have time to notice the decor, I wanted to make it pretty and give them something to look at.

I wonder how many curious visitors are tempted to open the little medicine cupboard hung above the toilet and look inside?

This pretty collection of china belonged to my grandmother and her cousin, Isabelle.  The little framed flower was from Target (yes, during their shabby chic phase) and the small flower in the shot glass is by Sia in London.

I found this pretty botanical print in a discount store, and painted the frame white giving it a little rub back so it looked old and loved.

I had this love heart toilet roll holder made by a local wrought iron maker.  I painted it the same colour as the walls.  Sometimes it's the little touches that make a room special.

  1. I'm sure all your guests do take a peek into the cupboard and how pleasantly surprised they would be. It looks so pretty as are all the other accessories in your powder room. I am your newest follower. x Sharon (South Africa)

  2. It's gorgeous! You have a lovely blog here :)

    Love and luck!

  3. I agree! The guest bathroom often gets overlooked but it's on display more than an ensuite bathroom. Great idea!

  4. Hello Kylie .... Lovely to see these treasures of Bessie's and my Mums being used so beautifully. You're very clever my girl. Judy xx

  5. Love the idea of putting some pretties in the medicine cabinet! :)
