French Farmhouse Bathroom with Cement Tile

Today I am sharing this little French farmhouse powder room as I slowly make my way around the house sharing various rooms with you all!French Farmhouse Powder Room

It was not easy taking pictures of this room – poor lighting in a small space.  I figure you all won’t mind.

Ok, so here we are stepping into the room.  I love the cement tiles that are so popular right now and decided to go with one up here. It took me a long time until I found just the perfect one.  This tile is a French encaustic cement tile.

I am aware they are trendy – that is why I stuck to a small space.  But like all things, this trend is nothing new, just recycled! The trendy tiles actually started in the 1850s!

I loved the light colors on this particular tile.  I knew it would be perfect for the room!  Now with cement tiles, you have to seal them twice. Once before you grout and once after!  You want to make sure your tile guys know what they are doing!

Bonus – the tile matched the trim and wall colors I had already picked out for the room! No repainting needed in here!

Now this little vanity we picked up at the Restoration Hardware outlet for a steal.   It is from the now retired Montpellier bath collection – perfect for French farmhouse style.  I love the Montpellier collection because it was inspired by a pair of 17th century Louis XIV doors.  There are hand-wrought antiqued iron hinges and raised panel doors.

I love the little diamonds here too on the hardware- so French! On a side note, too bad RH is removing all of their French pieces! I am not digging their modern stuff at all.

I adore the little sconces in here too – also from the RH outlet.  Now, I know this mirror is a bit too small for here – but it is only temporary until I can find a mirror that I love.
