Every time I go into our first floor powder room, I cannot help thinking that this tiny room used to be our kitchen. Well, half of our kitchen to be more accurate but still... that was a really tiny kitchen! If you're curious, here is a picture of our original (somewhat messy) kitchen.
Anyway, I thought I would relay a few details of our half bath. Needless to say with a 3 year old and another on the way, a first floor bathroom was a VERY high priority when we were designing our house. Our basic 1940 colonial only had one real full bathroom on the second floor and a pseudo bathroom in the basement - a toilet and shower in a tiny room with the laundry room sink outside the door. Not palatial but functional.
So, we got our first floor half bath in the remodel - yeah! I always planned for this to be a clean but dramatic room, but it is definitely not there yet. Here are some pictures of where things are now. (Note: This is a SMALL room so these pictures were challenging to take!)

On the toilet side of the room, I recently updated the artwork from this cute but undersized print of a ship on the St. Lawrence Seaway (near our alma mater of the same name in upstate New York) -
This last update has inspired me to start finding other DC architectural drawings and paintings to add to the room. So far I have found a few but I need to do some framing before I hang them.
To amp up the drama, I am seriously considering doing a stencil of some sort. I think it would look amazing but it's really a matter of how much contrast I want in there as far as color. I am going to do some samples pretty soon and then see what you all think. Stay tuned!
