I Totally LOVE This Sink!

I love the Art Nouveau design of this undermount metal sink – and it would go superbly with the “Bat & Poppy” wallpaper in my powder room (so a Search here).

Oh, right, this is a blog about wallpaper. Well, then, look above the sink to see the paper I hung in this powder room in the West University neighborhood of Houston. It is by Exclusive Wallcoverings, a British company, and is a solid vinyl with a paper backing, and is pre-pasted. It was not pleasant to hang, and I fully expect that it will have a relatively short performance life on the homeowner’s walls.

Did I mention that I hate paper-backed solid vinyl wallcoverings?

Bat Wallpaper Arrived – And Nicely Packaged, Too

May 3, 2013

Digital ImageMy “Bat & Poppy” Voysey design by Trustworth Studios arrived today. It’s GORGEOUS! 

I can’t wait to put it up, plus I’m doing some other changes to that powder room (new sink from an antique music cabinet & old porcelain bowl), as well as redoing my entry wallpaper with an authentic paper from the 1940’s (blogged about previously). Just need to find a coupla days when I’m not busy hanging paper at someone ELSE’s house.

Please note the careful attention to packaging by the Trustworth company. I have NEVER seen anyone, even very high end products, use packing peanuts before. Thibaut, Schumacher, Seabrook, Graham & Brown, Astex, Phillip Jefferies and all the rest should take a note. If everyone were this careful, we wound not have to deal with banged edges or other damaged goods.

I’ll be sure to post as the decorating project moves ahead.

Fabulous Arts & Crafts Wallpaper

Chris Murphy of Atlanta, Georgia, a fellow member of the National Guild of Professional Paperhangers (NGPP) shared a link to this company, Trustworth Studios.  Click “Wallpapers” on the left, and then scroll through their wonderful collection of actual designs, mostly from Mr. Voysey.

I am crazy about the “Bat & Poppy” and also the one with the fish.
