A powder room is a good area to take an opportunity with color. When you’ve got a room that is so modest in size, opt to make it a stunning exclamation point with daring paint choices — bypassing other decorating rules you might have heard. Such color can provice a real wow moment for guests, especially if the remainder of your house is calm and neutral. Head to your favorite paint shop and pick up some enjoyable paint samples that capture your eye. Then decide on one of them and grin at your fierceness!
