Image above: “We are lucky that only a few families lived here before us, which is pretty [remarkable] considering she’s not a young house — part of the demo included removing gas lamp infrastructure,” Sam says. “And while we’re not the first family in Brooklyn looking to maximize square footage, when you’re working with just 12 feet across it takes on a whole new meaning.” By opening up the stair wall, Sarah was able to elongate the home’s design and make the space feel much larger.

The perception that wallpaper in the powder room is only useful when you want to usher in bold pattern and bright colors is pretty far off from reality. Even those wanting a stylish and sophisticated black and white backdrop for the powder room can use wallpaper that brings plenty of pattern and personality to the limited space without actually disturbing the color scheme. Whether it is simple stripes or playful patterns inspired by the sights and sounds of nature, wallpaper in black and white is as much of a showstopper as those in striking shades.
This type of checkered pattern offers a lot of dynamic within a monochrome space. The diagonal shapes give the illusion of spaciousness and even the smallest bathrooms seem like they extend further than they actually do. If you are in love with monochrome bathrooms but worry about them becoming too monotone, a diagonal checkered pattern will not let you down!
A bathroom with checkerboard floors is a playground for a monochrome interior. Whether you lean towards very bright bathrooms or darker ones, the diagonal checkerboard will work amazingly with both! As a decoration tip, a dark black bathtub is just the element that a bathroom like that needs, in order to nail the glamorous look!
One of the colors that the world has been falling in love with all over again is orange. The last few seasons have seen homeowners and designers turn to this bright and vivacious hue that was shunned in the 90s as a symbol of the past. And unlike the ascent of gray to the top of the trend charts, this funky color divides opinions and evokes strong ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ responses from everyone. If you are one of those who adores orange, then the powder room inspirations that we have on offer today will surely delight and enthrall. And if you are skeptical about orange, maybe it’s about time to give the hue a shot!
When Samantha and Jonah Arcade and their two daughters outgrew their previous Brooklyn, NY apartment of six years, they never imagined they’d find room to breathe in a brownstone that was just 12 feet wide on each floor. But with Tirzah, 8, and Delaney, 4, a 1,000-square-foot home “wasn’t cutting it,” Sam admits. So about nine months ago, the family of four took a chance on a 1901 landmarked brownstone in need of a full renovation — from top to bottom, all four floors.
One of the biggest reasons for the revival of yellow and gray as a hot color combination is undoubtedly the ascent of gray to top of the hottest neutrals chart. With the popularity of gray only increasing with each passing season (if that is even possible at this point of time), it is only natural that homeowners are looking for ways in which they can enliven their dashing modern bathroom in gray. And yellow offers the perfect solution in this regard.
We love powder rooms, as they offer the perfect place to experiment with daring new trends and hot colors that you might simply never try in any other room of your house. The small powder room feels detached from the rest of the house, and often a tangential theme, style or color scheme seems to work best here. So, why not turn this into your little laboratory where you embrace your favorite shade of orange this summer and fall?
Vivian continues, “We wanted a floor plan that opened to the outdoors as much as possible. A place to showcase the art we collect in an inviting, user/dog-friendly space. A place to casually entertain guests while we cook. We chose a Danish dining table/chairs to maximize our view of the fields behind our house that will one day include more sculptures.” The Neill’s worked with architect firm, Howorth & Associates to see their vision to fruition.
