Add a Graphic Design Statement

Many bathrooms are often smallish spaces, so it really only takes one bold design statement to make an impact. It also sounds counterintuitive, but a small room allows you to get away with using a really strong pattern in a way that would overwhelm a larger space. A simple way to add pattern to a bathroom is to turn to wallpaper—nothing dictates mood quite as well. Florals can bring in an English country house demeanor while an explosion of graphic patterns can add edginess. At the Tides Beach Club in Kennebunkport, Maine, designer Jonathan Adler covered the bathroom walls in a metallic graphic print of blue and silver. Matching a playful wallpaper with a classic sink design makes the space look fresh.
