My Powder Room

Eva Amurri Martino shares the black, white, and grey design of the powder room in her Connecticut home

When I die, my tombstone should literally read “I Have This Thing With Powder Rooms”.  I don’t know why, but powder rooms have always excited me SO much design-wise.  They’re like the perfect little hermetically-sealed area to act out all your design whims and fantasies.  In our last home in Los Angeles, I did a really fun and energetic technicolor floral wallpaper in our powder room– and I absolutely adored it.  In this home, I took my design cues from the tile I picked out for our entryway and mud room– since the powder room is in the same area of the house.  In contrast to the technicolor flowers, I was interested this time in creating a more cool, calm, and tonal space with classic and almost masculine detailing.  Sort of like the Powder Room version of a clean and sexy cologne.  When we bought the home, this powder room looked totally different from that.  There were a lot of warm tones and rustic stone– and the shower, lighting, and vanity needed serious updating.  I absolutely love how this room turned out, and I can’t wait to see how it may evolve over the years!

    • The dark accent wall was a last minute addition (I had half a can of extra paint from Kyle’s office design…more on that soon…) and I’m SO glad I did it! Really brings everything together!

    I’ve been OBSESSED with cement tiles. I’m for sure getting them when I buy a place. This turned out amazing. So jealous!

    • I’m also obsessed with them! The great news is they’re really “in” right now so you can find them in a lot of different price points!

    I love, love, love this. Your eye for what looks good, classic and yet really fresh never seems to fail you. I don’t suppose you fancy popping over to Scotland to help me with our family living room redesign that is currently driving me nuts do you?
