A Blue Powder Room Comes To Life With A Marbleized Wallcovering

For a residence in Rye, New York, designer Shannon Murray Petruzello of Shannon Murray Interiors envisioned a glamorous blue powder room inspired by her client’s favorite color. “This home was originally built in the 1980s, so we did a full renovation of the first floor— including this existing powder room—in order to modernize it for a young family,” explains Murray Petruzello, who paired a cool marbleized wallpaper by Schumacher with Benjamin Moore’s Cable Knit Sweater on the remaining walls.

What did the client want for this blue powder room? The only mandate was to incorporate blue, so we gave this bath a ‘wow’ factor using many shades of the vibrant hue. I really enjoy creating one-of-a-kind powder rooms—they are truly the best space to do something out of the ordinary.

Talk to us about the brass accents. We carried the subtle gold shimmer in the wallpaper through to the modern brushed-brass Kohler sink fixtures. Lucky for us, the client already had the metallic mirror from her previous home, and it worked perfectly with the round sconce from Arteriors.

What an interesting vanity! The custom L-shape vanity was purely an aesthetic choice. The client didn’t have a need for storage below, which allowed us to do something a bit different with the design. For the wallpaper installation, we mimicked the form of the vanity and extended it from one accent wall up to the ceiling.
