Today I worked in a nicely re-done home in the Houston Heights. (Last year, I did their hall bathroom.) The home is a nice mix of true-to-period bungalow and mid-century modern – with a lot of cream and grey (including the bathroom I did last year).

I was tickled to see the homeowners choose this fun pattern for the guest bedroom. In many bedrooms, just the headboard wall (an accent wall) is papered. When you do this, you can get away with a lot of drama and color. But when all the walls are papered, as in this home, it’s best to keep the feel much more subtle.

The color is bright orange, but the pattern is composed of skinny line drawings in a single color on a white background, so the look is not overly bold and does not overwhelm the room.

The wife is a clothing designer, so she understands color, texture, pattern – I think she hit the nail on the head, with this pattern.

This wallpaper design is called “Feather,” and is by Serena & Lily, an on-line company. Their paper is truly lovely to work with, and will hold up nicely in this guest bedroom.
