Pretty Pastoral Floral in Heights Bungalow Dining Room

May 20, 2021
Original yellow dining room wall color was light enough and cheery, yet the room looked dull and uninviting.
A lighter background brightens the whole room
Visual movement via the vertical floral pattern brings the room to life
The design looks hand-painted

This homeowner is a big gardener, so this lively floral pattern is perfect for her dining room. In fact, I hung another pretty floral wallpaper in her bathroom a few months ago. https://wallpaperlady.wordpress.com/2021/02/10/a-very-pretty-heights-house-renovation/

The hand painted coppery colored horizontal stripe in the crown molding really accentuates the colors in the wallpaper. We all agreed that the room would not be as stunning without that stripe.

The pattern is “Summer Harvest” #216496, and is by Sanderson. It is a non-woven type wallpaper, and can be hung by the paste-the-wall method. Although I generally prefer to paste the paper.

The interior designer is Stacie Cokinos, of Cokinos Design.

Bringing Zen to a Yoga Room

July 5, 2020


One of the homeowners from yesterday’s post has an in-home yoga studio, and, as I hung wallpaper in three other areas of the home, she began toying with the idea of wallpapering one accent wall in that room, too. When the serene rural-themed pattern went up across the hall in the dining room, she immediately knew it would be the perfect finish for her yoga room, too.

I did some futzing and calculating, and was able to come up with one extra 10′ panel. I hung this centered on the accent wall. The “villa” homestead is perfectly centered in the panel.

The homeowner ran to Home Depot and got some decorative molding, that will be used as a frame on either side (not the top or bottom). The molding will be painted, or stained, or maybe antiqued (it’s to be decided!), in color(s) that compliment the wallpaper.

The pastel colors and soothing pastoral feel make this the perfect backdrop for a Zen experience in a yoga room.
