Tag Archives: Wallpaper

Clearly, I am newly obsessed with wallpaper.  It has been years since the word has been in my vocabulary.  Today, it seems a new and fresh concept especially for the bath.  It can add color and pattern and even architecture that is often missing in a space. If you are timid about installing multiple rolls of wallpaper in a large master bath, you can take baby steps by papering a powder bath.  The space will be transformed. And no need to be subtle with your choice of wallpaper. If you decide in a year or two that it is overwhelming or you have changed your mind about pattern, just take it down.

For those of you who have been following my Friday blogs, this highly decorative bath is an unusual post. I like this very personal statement by the designer and client who were not afraid of pattern or color. The active design of the wallpaper (Zuber 1960’s) is in contrast to the simplicity of the old dark wood  herringbone floor and low wood wainscot painted an Adamesque blue.  Small personal objects adorn the beautiful marble fireplace mantle and the chair indicates a bath where visiting and conversation are encouraged.

This master bath in Fairfield County, CT published in atHome Magazine could have been quite sedate even though beautiful materials were selected. However, the installation of flamingo wallpaper adds a bit of humor, texture, pattern and a little pop of color to a very muted palette.
