What a dream of a room, for a sweet little girl! This is a typical tract home in the Katy suburb of Houston, but it has been kicked up a notch in the daughter’s room. The board and batten paneling was added recently, and reaches up to the 7′ height of the doors. This high paneling is a very rich and elegant look. The 2′ high wall space above that had texture typical of the new suburban homes in that area, which I smoothed out before hanging the wallpaper (see other post). One wall of the room angles inward (see other post).

The wallpaper pattern is called “Watercolor Peony” and is by Anthropologie. It looks like real watercolor, and the hues are bright and glowing. I wish I had taken a close up of it. It’s just perfect with the white metal bed, and pink bedding, and other furnishings in this little girl’s room.
