Cute Recessed Shelf Nooks in Baby’s Wall

Look at this adorable display shelf! It is recessed into the wall, and has a cut-out in the “ceiling” for a small LED light, which will shine down on a decorative item inside.

This was in a new-born baby’s nursery, and the whole wall will be covered with these niches, in various sizes. Very sweet.

The new mother choose two wallpaper patterns for the room. One has soft water color looking butterflies, dragonflies, and flowers. The other is a textured paper that has a linen look, in a light tan or cream color. That’s the paper that is a backdrop to these display shelves.

Keeping the background calm ensures that the shelves and the items on them will remain the main focus.

Sterile White Doesn’t Cut It For A Newborn Baby Girl

This room is the right size, but is way too white for a precious baby girl. Mom had a vision to warm it up, and to bring some life and brightness in, too. This wallpaper is by Caselio, was made in France, but came to the U.S. via Mom in Brasil, to be hung in the new baby’s nursery in the Woodlands (Houston).

I started by smoothing the textured walls, and then I primed with Gardz. The pattern with the pink and lavender butterflies and dragonflies went on three “columns” in the room. The soft tan linen-look paper went on two opposite walls, one of which will hold a number of recessed shelves. After I papered the two linen walls and one butterfly wall, the homeowner thought about the room’s look overnight, and then decided to put the “fluttery” pattern on the remaining walls – around and over a door, and around a pair of windows.

The finished room is a serene and restful room, but the flying critters give it color and an uplifted feeling. Just perfect for a baby girl!

Faux Textured Wallpapers That Look as Good as the Real Thing

October 9, 2013

Digital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImageDigital ImagePeople these days LOVE textured wallpapers. I have blogged before about problems with many of the natural goods, such as grasscloth, and have told about advantages of the fakes. One of the best looking lines is by Thibaut.

Well, Thibaut has upped it’s ante, with it’s Edition 4 of the Texture Resource line. They’ve added more colors, more patterns – and the book is FANTASTIC!

Here are durable vinyl goods on a sturdy woven fabric backing, that will not stain if splashed with water, the color will be uniform from strip to strip, seams won’t show, no chance of paste staining the seams, and the cat won’tshred it to bits. (Well, I can’t guarantee that one… some cats are determined to destroy even the most iron-like vinyls.) The line features fake grasscloth patterns, linen look-alikes, wood grain, little tiny dots, and lots more.

The wallpaper is both visual and tactile – a real feast for the senses.
