The homeowner loved this paper in the powder room of her previous home. They didn’t have enough to do an entire room in the new house, so they had me put it on just one wall in their master bedroom closet. I hate this overused expression, but it sure “makes it pop!”

This wallpaper is by Graham & Brown, who makes a wide variety of nice papers. This one is on a pulp substrate and is called “Boheme.” I hung it in a brand new, very contemporary home in the Montrose neighborhood of Houston.

Wallpapering A Ceiling With Just One Person

I don’t wallpaper a lot of ceilings, and when I do, I prefer small areas that are not too high. Here I am papering the ceiling in a closet that has 9′ ceilings. I am using two ladders that are placed close to each other, so I can work off one and position the paper on the ceiling above it, and then step to the other ladder and paper another few feet.

The problem is, once you step down off the ladder to move forward, if you don’t have some way to hold the wallpaper to the ceiling, it’s all going to come pulling off.

Working alone, my trick is to use push-pins to hold the paper to the ceiling while I climb down and move the ladder.

Textured, Copper Colored Paper on a Closet Ceiling

I don’t wallpaper many ceilings, but when I do, I prefer small areas that are not too high. Here is a closet in a home in Bellaire (Houston) that has been decked out to fit the needs (lots of handbags and shoes!) and taste (glam, glam glam!) of the homeowner.

The room boasts some fancy wall light sconces with large crystals, and this huge chandelier with the same mega-crystals. The only thing that could stand up to all this glitz and glamor is a very dynamic wallpaper!

So here you have the perfect foil (pun intended 🙂 ) – a deeply textured, copper / gold embossed vinyl wallpaper. Light bounces off the metallic surface and brightens the room. But shadows are caught by the deep texture of the material, and the perimiter of the ceiling holds shadowy secrets.

This wallpaper is a textured embossed vinyl on a non-woven substrate, and is by Clarke & Clarke, a British manufacturer. The interior designer for the project is Martha Holmes, of MPH Designs, in Houston. I have worked with Martha for nearly two decades, and really love her classic-yet-livable style, and find her upbeat personality a joy to work with.

Grasscloth in a Closet

I hung this grasscloth in the bedroom of a garage apartment in Montrose (Houston) last year, and the homeowner wanted to use the scraps to paper the back wall of the closet. Hmmm …. might be a trend … this is the second closet I have wallpapered recently.
