Prints to Make a Big Impact in Small Rooms

Are you looking to revitalize a small bathroom or powder room and need some inspiration? Stretch your imagination and embrace a bold move. Remember the adage, opposites attract? Take a literal leap with a small space – like your powder room – and go for a big impact with large format wallpaper prints.

It’s your opportunity to showcase your artistic expression with bold vision and dazzling wall coverings. Vibrant, exotic, playful, and enchanting – these print designs will charm you and inspire you. Embrace the dramatic feel.

Five of our Hirshfield’s designers contributed their favorite large wall covering prints for a big impact on a small powder room. 

Osborne & Little Verdanta Bird Song

Michelle Morris of our Edina store picks Osborne & Little’s Verdanta Bird Song because “it brings a little of the outside in with a fun flair, especially if the ceiling is done as well.”

More on this design: “A collection of wallpapers of eclectic artistic inspiration. Many of the designs have directly coordinating fabrics. Signature colors include sapphire, silver, turquoise, peacock, primrose, fuchsia and duck egg with neutrals such as stone, linen and ivory. All the designs are printed on wide-width rolls.”  – Verdanta Wallpapers

Watercolors by Carey Lind Designs

Jana Nash from Eden Prairie Hirshfield’s recommends the Watercolor from Carey Lind Designs by York (pictured as a colorway and on a wall below).

“I love the botanical pattern and soft blended look of the design – the layers of both deep jewel and pastel colors – rich navy and fuchsia alongside pale celery and peach,” she says. “This paper could be paired with Hirshfield paints 1151 Fuscia Fizz or 0785 Misty Valley. Even white fixtures and trim look amazing with this color palette. Welcome the New Year with a bolder, brighter powder room this year!”

More on this design: “Beautiful symbol of peaceful sleep, this remarkable watercolor version of larger-than-life poppies is enchanting. The massive blooms, more than a foot in diameter, are interpreted in a dreamy fashion with blurred brushstrokes and fantasy colors. The five lovely palettes include vivid magenta, white, bright yellow/green and amber on a midnight blue background.” – York Wallcoverings

Janta Bazaar by Thibaut Design’s Caravan Collection

Edina’s Michelle P. suggests Janta Bazaar from the Thibaut Caravan Wallpaper Book. She likes it because the Citron Green wallpaper would make a powder room look like a jewel box.

Jon from Edina and Eden Prairie also picks Janta Bazaar, in blue. “I love color,” he says. “Paint the ceiling any one of the accent colors in the paper, but the middle green would be my personal best. It has a fun yet traditional value for my taste.  I am, at heart, a traditionalist!”

More on this design: “Venture to a place where treasures await at every turn in the Caravan collection. Classically inspired designs and worldly motifs are enlivened with a fresh and adventurous color palette. This energizing collection of coordinating wallpaper, print and woven fabrics is full of surprising shapes and movement that embrace traditional design.” – Thibaut

Zoffany Tivoli Old Gold

“This paper reminds me of The Great Gatsby, and the glamour and excess of the 20’s,” says Jess of West Fargo. “It is an extravagant pattern full of bold colors, and garnished with glimmer. Perfect for a statement powder bath.”

This room setting shows the same design, but in a different colorway.


More on this design: “Tivoli has been adapted from block printed wallpaper dating from the Art Deco period. The style and subject matter is typical of the time and to enhance a sense of Hollywood glamour the paper has been embellished with sparkling scatter beads and is printed in four colors.” – Zoffany
