Our Most Colorful Baths Ever
“In Florida, there’s endless inspiration in the landscape,” says designer Lindsey Herod. “So we pulled from the views outside.” For the guest bath, the greenery surrounding the Palm Beach home inspired the tropical wallpaper.

Designer Mark D. Sikes doesn’t want you to be afraid to go bold in the bath. “I think good powder rooms can lean a little wild,” he says. Following his own advice, Sikes chose a deep, deep blue (Stiffkey Blue by Farrow & Ball) and more exotic ikat wallpaper from Quadrille to dress this standout space.
