Mr. Jeffers uses a whimsical, leaf-patterned wallpaper to make the space flow. In addition, an ornate mirror and hand sink give the viewer something to focus on (rather than the small space).

A pink patterned wallpaper is the backdrop in this powder room. The space seems endless with its mirrored sink vanity and shiny tiled floors.

Black and white paisley and houndstooth prints give your eyes little rest as you look from the wall to the fabric wrapped sink.

Eye candy above in the form of a glittering chandelier mixed with a black and white patterned wallpaper again give your eyes something to look at (instead of focusing on the teeny space).

If you do choose to keep the palette simple, add decor for your guests to glance at. This powder room mixes vintage family photos and clean lines for a roomier effect.
