{inspiration: task lamps & dramatic wallpaper}

. . . here, it's elegant neutrals and everywhere marble, but seem to return, again and again, to the sophisticated combination of dramatic wallpaper and task lamps in this powder room -- quite surprising, really, as often drawn to light and bright walls and delicately pretty sconces -- and yet . . .

{p.s.} many, many thanks for: this lovely post

Dudes should take note. I think this would be perfect for a stylish bachelor pad powder room.

Oh, I adore the lights! They almost look oversized, which in fact, works so well here. I have to print this image for my files...
