Still Loving Wallpaper!


Some people think wallpaper is dated... but I go nuts over it, to me it is a classic!  I put it in niches , hallways and powder rooms.  I especially like it in the back of bookcases and cabinets.  This is a bookcase that I use in my pantry, it is from a convent in Wisconsin and it came with that cute striped wallpaper in it!  See even the sisters like having a little wallpaper.

Plaid Thibaut in the back of the cupboard in the drawing room





Vintage Schumacher deer wallpaper I got on Ebay--
which is a great source for finding single rolls



Classic French Clarence House in the hall bath--I've had this for 13 years and still love it!



My office bath--Thibaut again



In the back of my kitchen cabinets



Thibaut in my teeny tiny master bath




And I'll share, just for fun, our door on the petite master bath.  It came out of an old farmhouse in Prescott and  had the original hardware but it was too wide, too short and was hung the other way. But my husband, who is very handy, made it all better, then rehung it and here it is...

Unfortunately, this project put him over the edge and years later he is still talking about that crazy door I dragged home and how he had to "fix" it.  So now I have to be "selective" in what I bring home, if I want him to do his magic on it!





My newest favorite wallpaper by Nina Campbell...
I am going to put it in my office for a little pop and inspiration!  I really have a thing for green these days. 
I just painted my office in Dunn Edwards "Spanish Olive", bright but soothing.


And here is my client's powder room...I won her over to the wallpaper side too!



Doesn't it just look like a little beachy jewel box with the robin egg blue ceiling and beadboard?


 
Do any of you heart wallpaper too?

  3. I like wallpaper in other people's homes just not mine! I would get tired of the same pattern. Besides, I know Ben is not a fan. I might entertain the idea of putting it in my kitchen cabinets though, where you don't see it all the time.

  4. Very pretty! I love how you used it in the back of cabinets. That's a manageable amount. I haven't had it in my house in a while but I am rethinking this with your post!
