Here are pretty wallpaper ideas for a powder room. Bold patterns, colors, and or textures make a big impact in a small space without the giant commitment. Plus it’s just fun to surprise your guests!
Welcome to our Sunday Five Faves with Cindy and Annie including lovely wallpaper ideas for a powder room, my addictive lemon squares, and what to read and watch!
1. Pretty Wallpaper Ideas For A Modern Coastal Powder Room
We really enjoy the fresh wallpaper in our small foyer that is viewable from several rooms. It needed to “flow.” But in our closed-off powder room… an element of surprise can be fun! I would like to change the vanity, too. So stay tuned for that.
Here are some wallpapers under consideration.
Serena and Lily Striped Wallpaper in two colors
Some other ideas I have been playing around with…
And I’m waiting for a few more samples before making a decision.

2. Chewy Shortbread Crust Lemon Squares
In the interest of using up our lemons and wanting a homemade dessert for a little dinner party, I made Lemon Squares using a recipe from Tastes Better From Scratch.
And they DO taste better from scratch than say the ones from Trader Joe’s. Plus they are easy, require few ingredients and the house smells great. Since we like some tartness, I added some lemon zest, too.
I sent several squares home with our dinner guests. They are better refrigerated.
3. J. Crew Dress On Sale
This comfortable ” Afternoon Dress” dress is 35% off. It runs a little smaller (I’m wearing a small) and it’s not lined (but you can’t see through it so it’s actually cooler). This is a similar necklace from Etsy.
The sparkling water with lime and lemonade ice cube recipe is from our recent Summer Drinks post.
Speaking of J. Crew…I have this featherweight cropped cashmere sweater. It looks/is luxe and I always get compliments on it. Good for Fall or over air-conditioned places.
4. What To Read: “My Dear Hamilton” A Novel of Eliza Schuyler Hamilton
This is a good historical novel to immerse you in the first years of America fighting to become a nation. It’s interestingly told from the perspective of Hamilton’s wife, the daughter of a general.
5. What To Watch: The Bear
Howard, Tommy, and I all enjoy this series. We are using Tommy’s Hulu membership while he’s here (no commercials). May have to spring for it on Disney +.
“A young chef from the fine dining world comes home to Chicago to run his family sandwich shop after a heartbreaking death in his family.”
The good news is that it’s coming back for Season Two. Watch out as it will make you hungry for a Chicago Dog.
