This week, I am working in a new home in the Oak Forest neighborhood of Houston. The homeowners have a lot of antique furniture, and much of the house is designed to reflect their taste.

In the upstairs bath, I hung this textured wallpaper, which is reminiscent of the pressed-tin tiles that were used on walls an ceilings a century ago. It is designed to be painted, and then that is followed with a thin glaze, which is wiped on and then wiped off, leaving a little in the recessed areas, which accentuates the texture in the pattern. It’s a really cool look, and much more affordable than the real pressed tin.

The homeowner chose the Anaglypta brand, which is pretty much the grandfather of textured, reproduction wallpapers. Other companies make similar products.
