Today’s Popular Colors Calm a Power Room

June 20, 2021
Textured walls have been smoothed and primed. Ready for wallpaper!
The design looks as if it were sketched on with artist’s chalk.

Grey, tan, white, and cream are very popular colors these days, so this wallpaper suites the modern vibe of this newly updated home in the Willowbrook / northwest area of Houston.

Every time a family member snuck into the room to take a peak, the word I heard was “calm.” Indeed, this color scheme is truly calming.

The surface of the wallpaper has a unique, dry feel to it – almost chalky. It gives it a blissful, matt finish.

The manufacturer is Anderson Prints, in their Eco Chic line, and was bought from Ted at the Shade & Drape Shop on Richmond & Kirby.

Just as with a powder room I did a week ago, someone thought it would be a good idea to paint this small room very dark – in this case purple. But the whole effect was dark and oppressive.

People said it looked so much better, even with just my light colored primer!

But it looks even better with the new wallpaper!

These homeowners took a bold step with a pretty wild pattern. But they are not alone, because it’s a popular pattern, and I have hung it several times.

it really does a good job of opening up this room, and injecting the fun vibe of this young family.

The pattern is called “Indigo,” and is by Graham & Brown. G&B is a good company, and makes a ton of patterns and textures. You can buy directly from their website.

Most, if not all, of their papers are on a “non-woven” substrate, which means they can be hung using the paste-the-wall method. I usually prefer to paste the paper.

The home is in the Woodland Heights neighborhood of Houston.

“Big Girl’s Room” Gets Ants from Anthropologie

April 16, 2019


Here’s a bright and cheerful, watercolor-y pattern that is popular for little girls’ rooms.

I hung it on an accent wall in a toddler’s room in a home in the Timbergrove neighborhood of Houston.

The name of the pattern is “Ants,” and it’s sold through Anthropologie. The manufacturer is York, and it’s in their Sure Strip line of pre-pasted, thin non-woven, easily removable papers, and is one of my favorite brands to hang.
