We had some fun giving this dull powder room a facelift. We kept the basics – the vanity cabinet
and granite top didn’t change. However, we coated every surface with a new finish, and the
result is a fresh new space that feels clean, up to date, and pleasant. Here’s the to do list:
1. The cabinets were painted SW Urbane Bronze in a high gloss lacquer. Cabinet pulls are our
favorite: Top Knobs’ Tower Bridge in polished nickel.
2. The walls are Thibaut Etosha Pearl, which has a cool, slightly reflective finish that looks
refined, not Vegas.
3. Notice we didn’t forget the ceiling. It’s SW Hinting Blue in a flat finish.
4. The trim was updated, too. We avoid semi gloss on trim, opting for high gloss paint instead.
SW White is a great basic. You’ll notice Millwork looks brighter with high gloss, and dust
doesn’t collect as easily. What a bonus!
5. Our mirror is an antiqued glass with no frame. Simple and understated because the
wallpaper is the star in this room!
6. Of course, no room is complete without art. And Van Gogh is our favorite! We had a poster
glazed, which created cracks and added sheen, then lacquered an old gold frame in crisp
white. Love it!
7. No Charleston home is complete without a nod to our coastal setting, and these framed
shells from Wendover do just that. A silver shadow box frame and linen mat enhance the
Unique shells beautifully.
8. Global Views large matte white urn and Bradburn Gallery floor clock complete the space.
