The young owners of this newish home in the Houston Heights inherited a guest bedroom that had been drenched in a bright lavender color. They liked the color, but wanted to brighten and enliven the room, but also tone down all that pinky-purple. They also have an eye on a room that would work for a nursery down the road …

I suggested they visit Dorota (see below), and she helped them find this pattern. The color couldn’t be more perfect with the paint on the walls, and the pattern is lively, and it’s charming, without being overly sweet. It’s a grey day, and my cheapie camera is not showing the true colors of this beautiful paper – and I forgot to take a shot of the painted walls, to show how nicely the colors compliment one another. But, trust me, this is one of the best coordinated rooms I’ve seen.

Atypically, they did not do just one accent wall, but two walls opposite one another. I don’t always suggest this approach, but I have to agree this time, it looks fantastic.

I loved working with this wallpaper. It is part of the Eco Chic line, by Wall Quest, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby.
