Consider designing a powder room into a shabby chic ambiance keeping in mind that this does not always have to mean an all-white decor. The real purpose of course would be to give the room a somewhat antique appearance; this is basically the meaning of shabby chic. An old dresser of course will do, up against a neutral painted wall background. Refined tiles or whitewashed wood is right what you need to clad such a bathroom, speaking about colors, light ones and pastels are the best choice here. Vintage bathtubs and washbasins, exquisite ruffled curtains instead of usual shower ones, stunning old-fashioned mirrors and cabinets will make a base of your shabby chic bathroom.
