Fun Floral on a Tall Wall

May 28, 2020


The terra cotta color of the walls in this guest bedroom was cozy, but lacked pop. The homeowner added pizzazz with this fun, large-scaled floral wallpaper pattern. The colors are fairly mono-chromatic, so don’t overwhelm the space.

The paper is by York, one of my preferred brands, and is a non-woven material. I hung this using the paste-the-wall method, which saved me hauling my heavy pasting table up to the second floor of this home – which is located in the Rice Village neighborhood of Houston.

This wall vaulted to nearly 13′ high – higher than I usually like to work. But the homeowner set me up with his 8′ step ladder, so I was able to safely access the wall and hang the paper.

Wallpaper in Southern Living Magazine

March 30, 2019


These are from the March 2019 issue of Southern Living. The first three designs are by Stroheim. One adds cherry color to an entry, one is a subtle backdrop for a comfy farmhouse-style dining room, and one is an unexpected pop of color in a tiny vanity area.

The wallpaper in the last photo is unnamed, but it’s a beautiful setting for a classy southern lady interior designer.
