Beautiful, Funky 1960’s Mural

August 30, 2018


This mural is on the wall of a dining room in a 1960’s home in the Timber Grove neighborhood of Houston. It is actually larger than it appears in the photos. It’s original to the home, in perfect condition, and the ink colors are as vibrant today as they were the day it was hung.

Tailored Men’s Shirt Stripes in a Powder Room

Here is a very tailored and serene look with just a touch of a nautical feel, that I hung in a large powder room in a 1960’s era home in Highland Village. The wallpaper sales gal (read below) helped the homeowner find a pattern that pulled in the colors of the black granite countertop, as well as the cool stone wall with sea shell fossils in it. The homeowners spend a lot of time off-shore, so they love the slight seaside feel.

I centered the pattern (we call that “balancing”), so when they hang their mirror, the stripes will fall evenly on either side. (The toilet wall is also balanced, but you can’t tell, because the toilet is a tad off-center.)

This wallpaper pattern is by Thibaut Designs, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.
