The powder room is one of the home’s most exciting surprises in wait. These often-tiny escapes give guests an intimate look at the home’s prevailing aesthetic, which means they should be designed for big impact. In this Toronto bathroom, for instance, designer Vanessa Francis paired a tight geometric floral pattern wallpaper with thoroughly mod black-and-white finishes for a chic, ready-for-anything look.
“The wallcovering made the space. I love that it is interesting and busy but also inherently livable. It set the stage for the whole design.”—Vanessa Francis
