Two Pretty Blues Today

April 25, 2019


Another “all white” house gets a little personality and definition from a light dose of color and pattern. What a pleasant change!

The first three photos are Scalamandre’s “Balinese Peacock.” It came with a selvedge edge that had to be hand-trimmed off with a razor blade and a 6′ straight edge.

The last two photos are a fun elongated triangle floral stripe by Schumacher. My “after” sink photo didn’t come through, unfortunately, but the other pictures will give you an idea of the pattern.

Even though these papers are by two different manufacturers, the blue color is identical. It’s a lot brighter and prettier than my crummy camera depicts. The blue picks up hints of blue that the homeowner has in her living room (throw pillows) and in the dining room (navy blue paint above the wainscoting).

The peacock went in a small bar area off the living room, and the foliage stripe went in the under-the-stairs powder room that is right off the bar. The home is in the West University neighborhood of Houston.

Pictures shot on a rainy day = dark photos. Sorry. But I was tickled to have been able to see this room … You see, I hung this paper last year, in the dining area of a newly-married couple in a home in Oak Forest. When I leave, the walls are beautiful, but the room is not finished, so, when I went back today to hang paper in another room (they’re having their first baby, and I got to paper the nursery!), I got a look at how the dining room turned out.

The photo does not do it justice. This gal has a wonderful knack for design, and she has a bit of sass and glamor, too. There is a little sparkle in the wallpaper, and some sparkle in her throw pillows and on a few other accents around the room. I love the way she uses the bright turquoise vases to toss in a little unexpected accent color.
