Madame Ziggle in Heights Laundry Room

May 7, 2022
Accent wall primed and ready for wallpaper.
Finished! The pattern is nicely centered on the wall, both horizontally and vertically.
I love the way the colors in the wallpaper work with the moss green in the floor tile.
To the left, the wall continues into the bathroom. The homeowner wanted the wallpaper in the laundry area only, and not in the bathroom. We decided it made sense to stop the pattern at the edge of the door molding, and in the short 5″ high area over the door.
At first I trimmed the left edge of the strip vertically the same as the design that was running down along the side of the door molding. But I didn’t like the little triangles of background off-white against the color of the wall paint (not shown).
So I got creative and cut the paper off along the zig-zag lines of the wallpaper pattern. This way, the transition looks a little more planned and logical.
I told the mom that it looks like her kids took finger paints to the walls!

Manufacturer is Ottoline . This non-woven material had body, but was flexible and soft. It was a delight to work with.
I chose to paste the paper , but you can install this by the paste the wall method, too.
