A Pretty Paper in a Humble Bathroom


Ahhh … fooled ya a little … People from the Houston area know that “Humble” doesn’t mean “modest,” but, rather, is pronounced “Umble” and is the name of a suburb to the north east of town.

Anyway, I hung this in a nicely renovated and updated master bathroom in a home in an early ’80’s subdivision. The color is perfect with the new tile and countertop. The homeowner had originally chosen something similar, but the actual colors in that selection were just a tad off. This one worked better.

The brand is A Street Prints, by Brewster, and is a non-woven material that can be hung by the paste-the-wall method. I chose to paste the paper today instead, because it makes the material more pliable and less likely to crease when manipulating it into tight spaces. And because it ensures that paste will be on the paper, even in those tight spaces where you couldn’t reach to paste the wall (like behind the toilet or in between narrow spaces.

Also, when it’s time to redecorate, non-wovens are designed to strip off the wall easily and with minimal damage to the wall.

This wallpaper was bought from my favorite source for good quality, product knowledge, expert service, and competitive price – Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. She is great at helping you find just the perfect paper! Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.

The homeowners are so tickled with their new bathroom that they had me measure another bathroom for them, which I will do in a few months.
