Small Bathroom, Big Ideas

Small bathrooms can be a challenge to decorate, but they can also be a great place to be bold and daring with pattern, color and style.

An Eclectic Touch

Wallpaper bright with a forest of green leaves makes this powder room jungle bold. The vibrant look is continued with the red rug; a blue vanity both complements and tempers the other vibrant colors.

Peacefully Purple

Bold floral wallpaper makes a dramatic statement in this eclectic bathroom. A simple vanity has plenty of storage and octagon-shaped tiles ground the space.

Perfectly Posh

With its bold mix of patterns and metals, this bathroom from HGTV Magazine seems more like it belongs in a posh hotel than in the ’burbs. The wallpaper is by Brunschwig & Fils and spiky mirror is years old from Horchow.

Blue and Orange

The wild patterns in this amazing bathroom shouldn't go together, but they do (brilliantly!) thanks to a similar color palette and the small-scale size of the sconce's stripes, dish towel's beading and the mosaic tile floor.

Bold and Poppy

HGTV Magazine offers colorful decorating tips inspired by a North Carolina home that bursts with (almost) every shade on the spectrum. A white vanity topped with snowy Carrara marble lets the supersized poppies on the Osborne & Little wallpaper take center stage.
