Digital ImageWoo-hoo! This is the third time I’ve hung this pattern, but the first time in this gold-on-black color. It looks fabulous! It went on one accent wall in the home office of a young realtor in Aliana (Richmond, Tx), who runs her business from the room, and also receives clients there.

This wallpaper will certainly make a statement to her clients!

The homeowner said, “Wallpaper is addictive. I’ll be having you back to do more rooms!”

This wallpaper pattern is by Candice Olson (of HGTV fame) for York Wallcoverings, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.

Reaching a Stairway Art Niche

August 1, 2013

Digital ImageThis isn’t as dangerous as it looks… the niche is quite deep, and there’s plenty of room for my ladder. And it’s pretty easy access from the stairway, too, so no real fears of falling.

This is going in the new home of a young family in a new development in west Houston called Aliana. The couple wasn’t even considering wallpapering the niches, but when I saw the empty spaces, I pulled out my samples and showed them how cool they would look.

They chose a silver metallic cork material. Very classy and just a little flashy. Now they are more excited about the niches than the other rooms they’re having papered!

Digital ImageHere’s how it turned out.  The clients loved it.  Now they are looking for something to put in the niche – something 3-dimensional, perhaps architectural, or a sculpture.

The pattern is Thibaut 839-T-7047

Coincidence of the Day

July 31, 2013

I have so many coincidences happen so often, they don’t even surprise me anymore, no matter how odd or improbable. They DO intrigue me, though.

This week I am working in a new development way west of Houston, in Richmond, called Aliana.

Today I got a call from a couple wanting to wallpaper their baby’s nursery, and they live in a subdivision just a short distance from Aliana…in fact, I have to drive past their place on my communte!

Now, what are the chances of that?!

It makes it easy to bid their job, too, because I can stop by on my way home, instead of making that long trip back out there on Sunday.
