This small yellow floral pattern is mighty pretty and lively, and I hung many rooms with wallpapers like this during the 1990’s. But these homeowners had lived with the pattern for 10 years, and were ready for something more calm, and that better complimented their new grey granite countertop.

They were interested in grasscloth, but I brought up several down-sides to grasscloth, especially in a bathroom – stains when water is splashed on it, colors run, not washable. And the visible seams, along with the shading and paneling (difference in color between strips of wallpaper), that is characteristic of grasscloth. These homeowners listened to me, and realized they would not be happy with the irregular look and fragile nature of grasscloth, and instead chose this faux version, made of vinyl on a woven fabric backing, which is strong, durable, water- and stain-resistant, AND looks like the real thing.

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.
