Ever dreamed of having an English countryside inspired power room? Sharing how I achieved the look with floral vine wallpaper and board and batten.

Countryside Wallpaper Theme

When planning a powder room with personality it is always important to think about the theme you want to use in the space. For this power room my idea was an English countryside themed space with wallpaper. Spend a lot of time when it comes to picking wallpaper, you want to ensure this is a classic style wallpaper that you won’t get tired of easily.

When I think about the English countryside I think of warm colors, natural elements, soft florals, board and batten, straw hats and baskets, and vintage art. These are all pieces that I was able to incorporate into this powder room through floral vine wallpaper, watercolors, vintage art, hanging a straw hat, and a soft vintage inspired rug.

Floral Vine Wallpaper

When you are looking for classic wallpaper patterns there are many beautiful vine and floral vine patterns. The wallpaper I picked is a floral vine wallpaper with green and watercolors, which fits nicely with the countryside wallpaper theme.

While this is a busy pattern, I think it will stand the test of time due to the subtle green, watercolors, and the vine pattern. Floral patterned wallpapers are a classic design choice for wallpaper, and I often opt to pick for more neutral and subtle colors over bold colors.

Vine Wallpaper

Vine wallpaper is another great natural option to choose for a power room. This style of wallpaper usually has one primary background color and uses tones from the same color family making it easy to evolve with style and taste over time.

When picking a vine wallpaper I would opt to pick natural colors that you would see in nature. This also makes it more timeless and less likely to look “tired” over time, whereas a bold color would date very quickly.

Board and Batten

When you are designing a space with wallpaper, if important for you to think about the amount of traffic the space will get. For our countryside wallpaper powder room, I decided to add board an batten. When you add a wall treatment like board and batten to the lower half of the wall, it protects against any bumps or scrapes that the wall might get if there was wallpaper all the way to the baseboards. Board and batten is also a classic millwork wall treatment that fits seamlessly with the countryside wallpaper powder room theme that I wanted for our bathroom.
