This dramatic gold-on-black botanical design will be a backdrop to the bed in a master suite in a new addition to a ’60’s era ranch style home in Timber Grove Manor in inside-the-Loop Houston. Because wallpaper often shrinks just a tad, I have striped black paint under the seams, to prevent white wall/primer from showing, just in case the paper does shrink. That is the jagged edges you see in some of the photos.

This wallpaper pattern is called “Liang.” It is by Thibaut Designs, and was bought at a discounted price from Dorota Hartwig at Southwestern Paint on Bissonnet near Kirby. (713) 520-6262 or dorotasouthwestern@hotmail.com. Discuss your project and make an appointment before heading over to see her.

Why Live With White When You Can Have COLOR?!

Recently, I have hung wallpaper in several homes in which all the rooms – ALL the rooms – are painted white. That’s a good look – for people who like that look. But I would much rather see some color, even if it’s a pale tan or off-white. Even a little color helps define your spaces, and it really shows off decorative moldings.

These homeowners are not afraid of color. The addition to their home includes a TV room, powder room, and master bedroom and bath. They painted the woodwork a rich, chocolate brown. And just look at their choice of wallpaper for the powder room… The color in the first photo is true – it positively GLOWS! The next two photos are dark, but they show the pretty and playful design.

This wallpaper pattern is called “Sheffield” and is by Thibaut Designs, and was wonderful to work with. I hung it in a mid-century modern ranch-style home in Timber Grove Manor in Houston.
