This home in the far west end of Spring Branch (Houston) has the typical 60’s era ranch-style home floor plan. But the passage between the dining room and the kitchen had been walled over. Plus, the new homeowner wanted a home office. So she decided to turn the former dining room into her office.

The bottom wainscoting is painted deep navy blue. This “ink blot” pattern by Candicd Olson for York Wallcoverings is a bold and daring, but very well-suited, choice. The homeowner love it.

Once this went up in the home office, she looked at the adjoining living room with it’s painted walls and said, “I think I need wallpaper in here, too – this room is starting to look pretty blahhh.”

One photo shows my first strip centered on the wall. This makes a nice backdrop for the sofa, and other furnishings that will be moved into the room later.

This wallpaper pattern is by York Wallcoverings, and was bought at below retail price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby.
