Lauren Petit’s modern farmhouse is nothing short of stunning. However, as Austin Miller of Wise Built Custom Homes was finalizing the design, which he describes as “rustic modern ranch,” this tiny powder bath presented a conundrum. How could Miller and Petit pack a stylish punch in such a small space? “We wanted a bold pattern that still flowed with the house,” Petit says. Enter this Smoky Rose wallpaper by House of Hackney, which Miller sourced from Anthropologie. To keep the room from looking too precious, Miller selected contrasting brass fixtures like this bold faucet and Pottery Barn mirror. Sophisticated French oak flooring lends a bit of farmhouse charm.
