Our moody powder room is one of the very first rooms I knew exactly what I wanted for our new build. It’s the main bathroom for guests, so I wanted it to stand out. Our powder room is small, at 36 square footage, but it doesn't mean it can't make a big statement!
Without the issues of humidity that come in full bathrooms with showers and bathtubs, you can have more design freedom with powder rooms! Because powder rooms are small, you can take design risks that you wouldn't in main living spaces. The bolder, the better!

I was so inspired by Amber Interiors' design that I wanted to recreate it. Below are the steps and price breakdown on how I recreated Amber Interiors' Moody Powder Room!
I priced out marble sinks locally, and it would cost me over $5k with labor, so I decided to search the internet. To my dismay, I was so surprised to find beautiful custom marble sinks straight from Turkey! Even with shipping, it still costs less at $1220 for the sink with $330 shipping. I found the company, AtaMarble on Etsy!
From my first message to Oylum, the customer service was impeccable. I sent her the inspo picture of Amber Lewis's moody powder room, and Oylum gave me slab options that were similar to what I wanted. Then I got to choose the exact slab. They even sent me pictures and videos on Whatsapp before shipping. The sink arrived on time, as expected, and was packaged thoroughly in a wooden crate with styrofoam. HIGHLY RECOMMEND THEM!
Picking the best dark paint for our moody powder room is a top priority! I ordered a bunch of 8" x 8" peel-and-stick paint sheets from Sherwin Williams. It is a great way to sample lots of colors without having to paint. There is no mess, no dry time, and I can reposition them anywhere.
We went with Sherwin Williams Iron Ore in Semi-Gloss because it complimented the cool gray in the marble sink. We bought 2 gallons for this room (we have 1/2 gallon left).
Our amazing paint contractor, Bruno, charged us about $900 for labor and material. He gave us a discount because he painted our entire house, but he said this project would usually cost about $1500. He uses only top-quality paint and is one of my favorite contractors to work with! I highly recommend him if you are in the Seattle area! His number is (206) 861-3975. Just tell him Sabrina sent you!
Not going to lie; this was the most expensive part of the powder room! We hired Chris at Yeti Construction, who did a fantastic job! He did many of our home's projects, like installing our cabinets, decks, stairs, and so much more! Highly recommend him! He is actually located in Kitsap but comes over to the Seattle area for our projects.
However, if you can do a little DIY, you can find amazing wall paneling kits on Etsy! WallDesignStudio has some amazing options!
I got this stunning faucet from Kingston Brass in Polished Brass. Don't forget the matching toilet lever and sink drain.
Comment below with any questions you might have! I am sure you can get this similar look for around $2k if you DIY and find affordable alternatives for hardware. I hope all this was helpful!
