Favorite Room Feature: Enchanted Home

Today marks the first repeat Favorite Room Feature guest in the history of FRF. What a big day, y'all. About a year and a half ago, Tina from Enchanted Home shared the bare bones construction of her unbelievably gorgeous and ornate palace. Today, Tina is sharing two of her favorite powder rooms with us. Sunny and Glamamama. Tina is obviously a girl after my own heart with a name like Glamamama. Tina is one of the most genuine and beautiful people I have met through blogging. In all seriousness. A beautiful home for a beautiful person. Meet Sunny and Glamamama. 

Good morning, so happy to be here at Sadie and Stella, a place just oozing with pure style and pizazz. I was so happy to have been featured here last year and am back with a few more completed rooms under my belt. A little background, we moved  late Jan. into our newly built home that took almost 4 years. I have a looooong way to go but as they say baby steps, one at a time. The two rooms that are done are my two powder rooms. So that's where we are going today. Let me introduce you to powder room 1, I call her Sunny then we move to #2, glamamama.
 
Sunny......I wanted this room to be feel bright, crisp, inviting, fresh and welcoming. This is our family powder room off of the kitchen. I wanted it to feel less formal. I started with white marble with pale gray "dots" in a basketweave patterns and did mini subways on the wall. I  fell in love with the way the yellow and gray color palette complimented it. So my search began for the perfect wallpaper....when I found it I knew it was the one meant to grace the walls!!
The small sample I kept behind the sink literally for weeks until I decided to take the plunge!
 
I am very into dressing up a vanity, I put one of my favorite silver etched planters from my online shop on the sink counter top and filled it with white peonies.
All done!! I experimented (yes I like to do that  A LOT) with putting the silk gingham on the lampshades but decided against it for now......
I love a pretty silver tray piled high with yummy smelling guest soaps.

It was coming along exactly as I had dreamt up.  I wanted a casual feeling window treatment but still something that felt luxurious, so I went with a gingham check in yellow but in silk and found the perfect Barbara Barry trim in gray and soft yellow to compliment not overpower it. Then it was important to find the perfect mirror, one day while out looking for something else, I spotted it. I knew. Just knew. That was the one!! Add the little touches like sconces, a pretty silver planter, beautiful tray of soaps and I am a happy girl.
The pretty mirror that caught my eye and was exactly what I had in mind....and the basketweave floor.
All hung up.....and there's my silk gingham check drapes, its all coming together just as I had hoped!
  
Now meet "Glamamama"...this is where I pulled out all the stops. This was our special guest room, for special people:) Though this is a room that will not see a lot of use, I wanted it to feel very special like a little jewel box. And that is exactly what I got.
When I first spotted this wallpaper at Schumacher many moons ago.....it literally was calling my name. I felt a magnetic pull to it and couldn't get it out of my mind. Visions of a beautiful powder room danced in my head. I kept a sample of it for months and nothing else compared. So I took the plunge and never looked back. It was perfect with my floor to boot. At that point this room started coming together, it was effortless because I was enjoying it so much!
  
Then I was able to unbox sconces, very special bird sconces from Decorative crafts that I had bought for my old house but never put up because we ended up selling our home before I could. And they were PERFECT! I then set out to find a grand and fabulous chinoiseire mirror and finally found it from Friendman brothers, the king of beautiful mirrors. I then found a gorgeous chandelier from Safavieh that was the crowning touch. In the end, I  added the little touches that make a room special, like monogrammed soaps, pretty ant. brass trays, yummy potpourris and by golly, the vision that long ago had me dreaming had come to life. IT turned out exactly as I had hoped and lets just say I want to throw a party in this room! Here it is...tah dah!!!!!!!

My beloved bird sconces....they were meant for the wallpaper and chinoiserie mirror!

It's all in the details...I found an elegant striped slik fabric and the perfect tassel trim to compliment but not overpower the gorgeous paper
Love the way the drapes puddle on the floor, a big pet peeve of mine is seeing drapes that are too short, kind of like seeing highwater pants...sorry Pee Wee, not cool.
Thanks Lindsay for having Glamamama, Sunny and I here today. I love this series that you do and always enjoy seeing what goes behind putting a room together by all of your very talented blogging friends.  Wishing everyone a fabulous day!
