In this powder room, the sconces at head level and white paneling balance the more dramatic color on the upper half of the walls. The beauty of natural light is that it flows all around you. This configuration gets close to that feeling.
Put your lights on a dimmer switch. The low level of lighting in this powder room looks so pretty glowing softly against the deep color of the walls. But with a dimmer switch, your guest can turn up the light as needed to make sure they haven't pulled the wrong shade of lipstick out of their purse.
i like the color scheme and also how the white lower half of the bathroom is trimmed out in white. We have the same mirror shape and those sconces might be a little formal, but overall I really like the dramatic look of the "furniture" vanity and the wall color with the white accents and the dark floor
Example of furniture commode sink. This one's way too heavy & Baroque in style, but I like the idea of the sink atop a furniture commode. This, again, would be for the powder bath on the first floor near the game room.
