Designer Brooke Wagner took traditional picks — black and white tile, Shaker-style cabinetry — and put a fresh spin on them. She had floor and wall tiles laid in different patterns and chose mossy green paint for the vanity. Another twist in her mix: brass pulls and matte black fixtures. “Since they’re all simple, they complement each other,” she says.

What to do with a too beige, very beadboard-y half bath? Paint everything deep teal for full-on gorgeousness. “It’s like being tucked in a jewelry box,” says designer Zoe Feldman. The contrast of the color with the existing white pedestal sink gives it new life. Brass accents bring bursts of brightness.

“With three kids, I needed a functional powder room that didn’t take itself too seriously,” says homeowner Siri Warkentien. Her wallpaper quest led to this groovy orange number (one wall is plenty of pow), contrasted with navy penny tile on the floor. The slightly curved panels on the vanity doors, made by her husband, wink
at the
wallpaper shapes.

Charming but not too sweet: Designers Leigh Lincoln and Aly Morford got the balance just right in this space. They matched whimsical kaleidoscope-like wallpaper in pastel colors with a grayish blue vanity that has cute satin nickel bin pulls. “A powder room is a great place to be playful,” says Leigh. After all, risks here are minimally sized too.
