Soft, Sweet, and Wistful for Children’s Bathroom

February 25, 2021

Before my baby blue primer hit the walls, this hall bathroom was all white – white walls, white tile, white vanity and mirrors and sink. Just a little bit of light grey color, and a simple white line drawing on this wallpaper do wonders to give this room warmth and personality. The design reminds me of a fairy tale. The family is bowled over by the change!

The paper is by Borastapeter, a Scandinavian company. It is a superb product – washable, easy to strip off when it’s time to redecorate, soft and supple enough to make hanging it in tight areas easier, seams are virtually invisible, non-woven material so can be hung via the paste-the-wall method (I pasted the paper instead).

The interior designer for this job is Stacie Cokinos of Cokinos Design. The home is in the Woodland Heights neighborhood of Houston.

Example of Why Wallpaper Should Be the LAST Thing You Have Done

Sometimes I hate opening my e-mail. Tonight I got this not-too-welcomed note: Hi Julie – “Re the master bath you papered last month, we had mirror installers come out this last Monday and they screwed up the wall when hanging the 2 mirrors above the 2 sinks. So, I need to check your availability to come out and fix the wall above the 2 sinks. I think there is enough wall paper for the 2 areas. Thanks, J.M.”

Mirrors (and vanities, and cabinets, and bathtubs, and lots of other things) are big and heavy and unwieldy, and even big burly guys can have trouble maneuvering them into place without hitting walls or woodwork or BRAND NEW WALLPAPER.

Sigh.
