I’ve had a week-long job hanging wallpaper in Carmine (near Round Top and La Grange), Texas, about 90 miles northwest of Houston. It’s a new home on family farm land – and I’m getting to spend the night! 🙂

Below are more pics of the view, and of the job itself.

Wouldn’t you love to go to sleep with this outside your window?

I am lucky this week, because that is exactly what I am doing. I’m working on a farm in Carmine, Texas (near our beloved Round Top), 90 miles northwest of Houston, and am spending some nights there.

Let your mind’s eye add cows and horses, and let your mind’s ear add crickets and tree frogs.

Yeah – I’ve got a great job. 🙂

More pics of my recent job in the country …

This master bathroom is on a farm near Round Top, Texas. White beaded-board wainscoting goes 3′ up the walls, and the wallpaper covers the rest.

It’s a clean, airy look, and has a lot of “country” in its feel.

This wallpaper is by York Wallcoverings. It is prepasted and nice to work with. (The un-plumb walls and un-level ceiling are another matter all together….) The paper was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.

Swirly, Golden Floral in a Farm House Powder Room

The homeowner’s selection was spot-on when she chose this soft floral pattern with an upward movement. The color perfectly coordinates with the tile and countertop in the powder room, as well as with the paint colors in the adjoining entry hall and bedroom.

The wallpaper was carefully chosen, not just because of the color, but because this powder room-with-a-shower serves both the elderly father whose bedroom is next door, as well as guests, so the design couldn’t be too girly or frilly, while tying in with the country feel of this new home on the family farm.
