See how homeowners go bold with tile, paint, wallpaper, flooring and decor.
Traci and Joe Leuritsen painted the vanity in their family’s Lake Lotawana weekend home a glossy red, Real Red by Sherwin-Williams, and then layered on patterns. The couple worked with D Smith Wallcoverings to install a bold blossom-patterned wallpaper. Vibrant textiles, including the shower curtain and the hand towels, complete the space.
Three-light vanity: Capital Lighting Fixture
This colorful powder room is right off the front entry of the Leuritsen family’s home. The wallpaper features colorful birds perched on black line drawings of tree branches. The door is painted a cheery blue, Jamaican Aqua by Benjamin Moore, and the vanity knobs feature a nature motif.
Kaitlin Doubleday found a budget-friendly way to update the master bathroom in her East Nashville home by painting the existing double vanity a dramatic black. She swapped out the hardware to give it a new look and feel, and she had a butcher block countertop installed, along with a pair of white vessel sinks and brass faucets.
The homeowner kept the existing mirrors and created new frames for them out of trim pieces that she had painted black to match the vanity. A vintage pink rug adds a spot of color while covering up the existing tile.
Doubleday added a dark floral-patterned wallpaper in the powder room to completely transform it. “That was the easiest,” she says. “Wallpaper can make any room look so rich.” She then added a new pedestal sink and clear glass wall sconce.
Kathe Lison and Christopher Cokinos restored their 1880s adobe building in Tucson. In their master bathroom, the couple created an open wet-room layout with a claw-foot tub. They walled in the shower and tub on two sides and covered the floor in geometric black-and-white cement tiles. (Since the original Houzz story about their home was published in April 2018, they have since sold it to actress Diane Keaton.)
