Takeaway Tuesday: Pretty Powder Room

May 28th, 2013

Hey everyone! I hope you all enjoyed the long weekend, we certainly did. I’m continuing the takeaway series today with a pretty powder room that you may recognize from the past, one of Sarah Richardson’s designs, and I think we can all agree, she always gets it right! I love the warm palette, the bird and branch wallpaper, and the traditional dark wood accents. Here are this week’s five takeaways:

On the other side of the space, Sarah used an ornate wood shelf, a perfect place to set a lady’s handbag or a vase of flowers.
