The mother-to-be wanted something sweet but somewhat whimsical, but also subdued, for the ceiling in her new baby’s nursery. She fell in love with this dot-within-dots design.

I hung this above the glass beaded wallpaper that you see in see my blog post two days prior (August 11). The color is muted and the dots are subtle, which is just what the homeowner was after. Even better, the pearlized centers of the ceiling dots accentuate the sheen on the wallpaper used on the accent wall below.

This wallpaper pattern is by Kenneth James, for Brewster, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby.

Metallics are Hot!

May 7, 2012

Metallic papers are all the rage right now. I’ve done a hot pink damask (see the Gallery on my website ) on a silver background, and then two months later the same paper in a black on gold. I did a silver metalic cork in a powder room, and then a month later did the same paper with a gold metalic damask overlay in a River Oaks dining room.


In April in the mirrored area surrounding a bar’s glass shelves I put up York #670103 from their Bling collection – black metalic background with gold and hot pink balloons –


Earlier in the year, in a young familie’s dining room, one wall in York Como Circle glass beaded paper swirly circles by York:
