Small spaces offer the perfect opportunity to make a big style statement, and powder rooms in particular present an exciting challenge. These often tiny, tucked-away areas are the ideal place for the design-minded to aim for maximum elegance, take a rewarding risk, and put the fun in functional. Case in point: the above space by New Orleans-based designer Shaun Smith, which proves that when expertly executed, a powder room can pack a powerfully stylish punch. After all, when you’re only dealing with a few square feet, every detail matters.
