Wanted: Powder Room Inspiration

I can't stand it any longer; the time has come to tackle my powder room.  To say it is small is a considerable understatement.  I can't even figure out how to photograph it.  I wish it could be stripped down to its bare bones, but mama's budget has to override any delusions of grandeur that may be had in the finishes department.  

I have tossed around many ideas, and the one I keep coming back to is a chic black and white with a pop of color, or gold, or metallic!  The perfect aesthetic for pee pee passers-through. 

Believe it or not, I was challenged to find pics of exactly what I had in mind.  But I did find particular elements of what I was thinking in a few images featured below.

I love the opulent wallpaper juxtaposed with the sleek, contemporary lines of the sink.  The sconces mirror mounted coupled with the mirror height extending to the ceiling gives off a regal effect.

That mirror!  I recently came upon a similar mirror in my favorite antique shop, and I passed on it.  WHY?!?  Perhaps it is still there...fingers crossed.

Loving the ebony crown moulding around the perimeter of the ceiling.  Not to mention, the always beautiful carrera marble.  Instead of counting sheep in my sleep, I count carrera marble slabs and tiles. 

My inspiration photo takeaways to start me down the powder room path, I've decided:  White walls, ebony crown mouldings, door and window frame and a large, horizontal Neapolitan-style mirror. 

What say you?
