More white wallpaper! This young family has a fairly traditional styled home in West University Place, but wanted a more modern feel. They had originally selected a geometric pattern with 6″ circles. But when I got to work, they had switched to this silver-on-white trellis. I think this works MUCH better.

The room retains its traditional elements – crown molding, paneled wainscoting, hardwood floor. A crystal chandelier was added, but it was carefully chosen to straddle the line between traditional and modern. The original circle wallpaper pattern would most likely have been too contemporary. This trellis does a perfect job of blending traditional with modern, and pulls all of the room’s elements together.

From a paperhanger’s point of view, I was happy that the pattern motif did not cross the seam line. Meaning that I did not have to match one strip to the next, and so could manipulate the strips so that the exact same part of the design hit the top of the wall on every strip, maintaining a uniform look. That helps a lot when a room has unlevel ceiling and wainscoting lines, and unplumb corners.

This wallpaper pattern is by Thibaut Designs, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.
