Wild Indigo Pattern in Heights Powder Room

Just as with a powder room I did a week ago, someone thought it would be a good idea to paint this small room very dark – in this case purple. But the whole effect was dark and oppressive.

People said it looked so much better, even with just my light colored primer!

But it looks even better with the new wallpaper!

These homeowners took a bold step with a pretty wild pattern. But they are not alone, because it’s a popular pattern, and I have hung it several times.

it really does a good job of opening up this room, and injecting the fun vibe of this young family.

The pattern is called “Indigo,” and is by Graham & Brown. G&B is a good company, and makes a ton of patterns and textures. You can buy directly from their website.

Most, if not all, of their papers are on a “non-woven” substrate, which means they can be hung using the paste-the-wall method. I usually prefer to paste the paper.

The home is in the Woodland Heights neighborhood of Houston.

Way Fun Splotchy, Inky Lines in a Heights Powder Room

January 10, 2019


Here we are, in another new tract home in inside-the-Loop Houston, with a generic look and beige-everything. The homeowners have twin daughters who are just learning to walk, and they wanted their home to reflect the fresh energy of the young family.

Here comes a fun “angled, tufted pillow” sort of design to the rescue!

This cool design looks like it was hand-drawn in watercolor paint, and has a distinct Rorschach Ink Blot Test feel to it.

“Shibori” in Indigo Blue is by Graham & Brown. It is a nice-quality non-woven material, and was nice to work with. It should hold up very nicely as this young family grows.

Non-wovens are also designed to strip off the wall easily and with little-to-no damage to the walls when it’s time to redecorate.
