Daring to Go Dramatic

Digital ImageThis Grecian urn motif in cream-on-black was a dramatic choice for a hallway. At first I thought, “Why are they papering the hallway? Why not the dining room, or a bathroom, where they spend more time?”

But it turns out this was the perfect choice for this room – and for this homeowner.

Besides leading to the bedrooms in this 1950’s era home near Reliant Stadium, this is the entry hall, with the front door opening into this room. In addition, the family passes through here a lot, and both the living room and the dining room open up to this hallway, so the paper can be seen many times a day, by many people, and from several vantage points.

And, even more important, the homeowner is something of a “big personality” person, so only a wallpaper pattern with an equally big punch would do!

She loved it so much, when I was ready to leave, she gave me a big hug!

This wallpaper pattern is by Thibaut Designs (#AR00132), and 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.
