Upward Movement Geometric in a Briarpark Entry Way

January 10, 2018


This beautifully updated 1971 Tudor-style ranch-style home in the Briarpark area of Houston was pretty much white and grey, from outside throughout the inside. The homeowner wanted some warmth and life, and some personality for the interior.

This scratchy black on white pattern does all of that. It is a combination of geometric, trellis, and medallion, and it has a strong vertical influence, too.

Notice how the design motif has been centered on the two walls pictured.

This wallpaper is from A Street Prints, by Brewster. It is a non-woven material and is intended to be a paste-the-wall installation. But I had better results by pasting-the-paper. The paper was bought at below retail price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. She is great at helping you find just the perfect paper! Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.

Boy, oh boy – did this turn out pretty! Two young sisters share this bathroom, and they are all about pink and frilly. This lively butterfly pattern in cheerful colors is just perfect in their sink room.

Putting the same wallpaper in the adjoining tub room was considered, but decided against because it might look too busy. I agree. Possibly a more subdued pattern using the same colors would work in the tub room.

But it’s more likely that the homeowners will opt to paper some other rooms – once they saw how good this looks, they asked me to measure other baths as well as the dining room!

I hung this in a 1988 home in Tanglewood. The interior decorator is Liz Mann. (See more of her work by doing a Search here.) The pattern is called Seraphina, and is by Anna French, for Thibaut Designs. It is a non-woven material and a paste-the-wall product.
