As a designer I always guide my clients when it comes to selecting paint colors. It’s a big decision! Picking the wrong color can ruin the design of a room. There’s usually one room in the house that will allow you to be bolder than usual…the Powder Room! A powder room is a small room for guests to freshen up privately.
Even if you have an open concept home, your powder room can have a slight edge to the overall design of your home because it’s a room of its own. These are some dramatic paint colors that will have your holiday dinner guests saying “Wow, that’s nice! What is that paint color?”
1. Moody Blue by Sherwin Williams
If you are looking for a deep yet relaxing color for your powder room than Moody Blue is a great option. It's a cool tone that pairs well with a mixture of finishes. In this powder room we drew the paint color from the accented blue in the chocolate towels. That allowed us to add some bronze and gold from the accessories to balance the Moody Blue walls.
2. Dovetail by Sherwin Williams
Dovetail is a great paint color option if you are looking to achieve an urban or transitional style powder room. It's a rich gray that pairs nicely with lighter tones and bright accents. In this powder room we complimented the gray with orange orchids, rust colored towels, and a white/ivory mother of pearl mirror.
3. Expressive Plum by Sherwin Williams
Expressive Plum is a deep violet with a hue of gray, a cool blue, and a small hint of red. It is a great option in a traditional or transitional style powder room. It pairs nicely with white fixtures and chrome hardware to add a classic look. This color pairs well with warm grays, blues, rustic orange, or fiery red accents.
With these options you are sure to impress your guests!
