Good-Bye Super Sweet, Hello … Well, the New Pattern is Sweet, Too.

Everything in this house – EVERYTHING – is pink, red, navy, and baby blue, all cabbage roses, china, and Waverly style. This matches the homeowner’s personality, as she is a very sweet lady. But she was getting tired of all the pattern, as you see in the top two photos (master bathroom and sitting room). Gee, it had been up since the ’90’s! And I hung a lot of that style in those years.

So she had me strip off the flowery paper (see yesterday’s blog post), and rehang the bathroom with this 3″ baby blue-on-white stripe. The wide stripes in pastel blue are a good fit for the room, as anything narrower or darker could have looked jail housey. It’s still a sweet look, but it’s much softer than the deep hues and busy patterns. The sitting room wall was left unpapered, and her handy man will paint it this weekend.

This wallpaper is by Sure-Strip, a reasonably-priced, prepasted paper that is designed to come off the wall later with minimal effort. I enjoy working with this brand, and it performs nicely over time. The paper was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby.
