Only thing settled for this room is the vanity (attached photo). Floor is Mexican Tile.

Geometric patterns are hot right now, and if you choose a neutral color combo, it should last a long time. You can change out colors through accessories as you desire. You might also investigate the new removable papers - you could go more daring and make an easy switch someday, should the mood strike you.

Ooh, I love wallpaper! I can't tell whether you mean that the floor is Mexican tile in the photo, or that it soon will be Mexican tile, in which case - do you mean Saltillo? If the latter, then these papers won't go. But if the floor is already in there in the picture, then maybe one of these patterns would look nice with that vanity:

Great news is there are a huge number of papers that are actually vinyl which means keeping them looking like new will be a snap. In a small room with these classic features I feel adding texture would add visual impact but not overwhelm. By installing a Grass cloth Vinyl you will have a great backdrop for a few art prints and objects d'art.

With that gray grout, that vanity should look very nice with this floor.

Now the designers should be able to find some very nice wallpapers incorporating the gray and the terra cotta color.

What do you like? Are u traditional contemporary? Do you like color? There are so many choices but it has to be what you love. A bathroom an be a great place to add something a little more adventurous too!

You might consider using a grey and white wallpaper as suggested above and pick up the tone from the tiles in the frame of the mirror or a piece of artwork to unify the elements.

I really like the Claire white with gray. Neutral is best without a busy pattern.

Hi, I'm in love with Sanderson's wallcoverings. I can waste hours, literally, browsing their site. They're available in the US. http://www.sanderson-uk.com. With such a beautiful vanity how about something very traditional on a feature wall, but picking up the floor and vanity colours, maybe like this?

They interesting but with the exception of the above right poppy white and warm grey. illustration the papers are too yellow, carmel and curliesque. As my mother often says;"Gals, we shall not go down" frumpy".. Now close your eyes and bite into a slice of ,canteloupe ! How do you feel? If you like canteloupe, as I, I feel warm, carefree mixed with a curious sense of ....JOY

Powderooms are difficult to decorate. They are destination rooms, designed for personal business, and a decorator's dream. It becomes the show-off W/C...leaving not a trace of homeowner personality. They remind me public toilet only,pricey, and show-offy and naff green. Personally,..
I like to eat! So..... I"m very fond of food groups. The next time you're grocery shopping ask if they carry
"dream sicles" it's a combination of vanilla ice cream and soft orange sherbert. After a few licks....you'll have the colors blened to perfection,Snap a pic and post it,here. That bllssful shade comes in all assortments,,,,"dreamsicle",,,a creamy soft peach as a background shade. If you find this tasty treat have a few licks and send me your specimen of the perfect peach. Our m/u brand has such a color. Spot on! It's called GEORGIA; a peaches and cream powder finish that leaves your skin looking happy and irresistible. So please findshade this shade as background for your powder room.
I WON'T GET TO MY PANTONE CHIPS FOR a WEEKS. ANY PANTONE FREAKS READING THIS that can lend a hand.CAN YOU HELP? Remember not to fret over the design.

Happy licking, and learning about a unique color that has no trend. It's timeless. Why? Because the "feeling" of this shade is.....JOY Get ready for YUM in you TUM and powder room..Other food to peruse? Mentos, Fruitloops, .....somebody help me show .Let show Nancy what YUM looks like..a creamy, dreamy peach popsicle. YUM! Thanks for a kind review

Sorry for my misspells

I would also suggest a paper that 'tells a story' as vicky951 notes. If you like brown toile--my favorite is Brunschwig & Fils Zarafa in sepia. It has tones of brown and grey and a really great story about a giraffe who they walked through Paris. I think it would also go with your Mexican tile and traditional vanity. You can google it or find it on B&F's website.

I agree with all of the above re: using a bold print, but use some color, your vanity is beautiful but gray, let your walls pop.

Cole and Son Birch Trees! It's one of my favorites and would look great with your current design, which looks great by the way. Or you could do something like Fern Living's Ribbed 118.

If you use the first wallpaper that ASV suggests, then you really could call it "the library!"

Hi.....people tend to confuse. I think you made 2 great selections. The claire wallpaper would be fresh and has a modern country look. Keep it fresh with white towels.
