Jazzing it Up

I had an e-mail from a gal today (see previous post) who wants to do something contempory and bold, and is moving toward a large-scale damask pattern in bold black. She wants to use this paper on an accdent wall, and do the same treatment in both the living room and the bedroom.

Great idea.

But I asked if she planned to use the same paper in both rooms, and she said, “Yes.” “Boring,” I replied, and besides, it de-emphasises the hipness of such a daring idea, to have the same treatment in two different spaces.

But she really likes the idea, and still wants to go with it.

So I suggested going ahead and using the same pattern in both rooms, but to use a different color way in each room. That way she will have the continuity of the bold look throughout the house, but can tailor the color to match the color scheme of each room.

She loved the idea!
