Wow, do I love this room! It’s all about classic and traditional. This is a dining room in a new home in West University Place (central Houston). During our first consultation, the homeowners showed me a wallpaper selection book with a pattern they were originally considering – a somewhat similar theme, but with medallions on a light background plopped rhythmically across the walls. I told them I thought it looked too “polka-dotty.”

They put some thought into my comment, and, when I came back to hang the paper, here is what they ended up choosing. MUCH better option! The tone-on-tone paper fills the space better, and more calmly, and the old-world feel looks fantastic in this fairly-formal-but-not-stuffy home.

This wallpaper pattern is by Designer Wallpaper, was positively delightful to work with, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby.

Traditional Taste Still Going Strong

January 10, 2014

For several years not too long ago, wallpaper took a nap. Now it is back in style, and EVERYONE wants it! When wallpaper came back into vogue, it’s like it reinvented itself, unveiling new patterns and colors – overscaled medallions, bold geometrics, retro designs, and textures. People are using paper different ways, too. Accent walls have become predominant, and kitchens are rarely ever papered these days.

But many people are drawn to the traditional, and I don’t mean old people who can’t handle change. In just the last month, I have papered three bedrooms – not just an accent wall behind the bed, but all four walls. And last year I did two other entire bedrooms.
