Geometric Pattern in a Powder Room

Digital ImageThe power room in this charming and nicely updated 1937 home in West University Place (Houston) was originally cave-like, with a dark muddy-green paint on the walls, and a thick texture, too.

This understated geometric pattern continues the muddy-green color scheme, but is much brighter and adds more interest than the plain paint did.

With a definite pattern such as this one, I like to center it on an important feature in the room, in this case, the sink (mirror will be hung soon).

The fur down / soffit (the funny boxy element under one part of the ceiling) was more difficult than it looks, because it was neither level nor plumb. I had to split the pieces, and plumb them as I went along. I am happy with the way it turned out.

And I love the look of a small lamp on the vanity in a powder room!

I have hung this wallpaper before, in an off-white color; it is a very nice product to work with, and will hold up well over many years.
