This is the room in the house we did the least work to.
We kept the pedestal sink, the floor and the white tile. We painted the walls and added some new accessories to make the space ours.
As a reminder, here’s how the room started. I love green, but this was a bit bright:
Keeping the white tile kept some of the charm of the original house.
The original bathroom had lime green walls.
We toned the wall color down a bit, going with the same Ryegrass green paint from Sherwin Williams we used for our bathroom upstairs.
This bathroom had a door to the laundry chute, original to the house, which is another charming touch. These little features are one of the fun parts of buying an old house!
I’ve shared this mirror before, but I LOVE it!

I didn’t use the same garbage can from the collection in this bathroom. With the white floor and white tile up most of the wall, I used a green garbage can for a pop of color near the bottom of the room.
The original bathroom had two towel holders, built into the tile, so we kept them.
Typically, I’d say you only need one towel holder in a powder room, but oh well! Having two actually turned out to be a good thing – it give us two places to add a pop of color in the room. plus it’s easy to hang a seasonal towel on one of them.
I love this basket for holding tissue.
GET THE LOOK:
Since a popular question I get is “Where’d you get that?!,” here are links to the same or similar sources:
- Wall color: Ryegrass by Sherwin Williams
- Floor tile here or here
- Towel ring
- Soap dispenser
- Towel bar
What would you have done? Would you have kept the white tile or renovated the entire room?
