Moody Modern Bathroom Plan

By Kate Riley November 8, 2017

Another new project landed in my lap, it’s a small hall bathroom for a shared commercial office. Rather than something light and bright like I did in my own home with my powder room, I’m headed in the opposite direction. This time I’ll create a moody modern space using a combination of deep hues on the walls (black or charcoal), a wood vanity, and brass accents.

The Inspiration:

Here is the 4×6′ space as it exists now, it’s one of those tiny bathrooms thrown together for utility alone and with no consideration to aesthetic whatsoever. So boring right? I can’t wait to give it a fresh, more attractive look.

The vinyl plank floors are in good shape so those stay. However those walls are crying out for something cool, I’m leaning either dark stained or painted plank walls, or perhaps grasscloth wallpaper in a deep hue as the backdrop, like the walls in the inspiration images above.

The vanity shouldn’t be more than 30″ wide to have the proper proportion, these single sink wood vanities caught my eye:

  ronbowfairmont / roveland / bristol

The ceiling is 8′ so it demands a flushmount fixture, and I’ll add a mirror to complement. For the touches of brass I love these flush mount fixtures and mirrors:

I’m trying to turn this one around in the next month. I’ll share the final product selections and space reveal when it’s done. .



  1. That bathroom needs you desperately!! Hopefully you can find an alternative to the paper towel dispenser. I’ve seen those type of towels in a rectangular basket on a shelf in professional office environments.
    I believe the dark/brass/wood plan you have will be very sophisticated. I can’t wait to see the transformation!

  2. So pretty to do dark plank on the bottom and dark grasscloth on top. Water gets everywhere in office bathrooms! Looking forward to the reveal, should be beautiful!
