Slight Pattern Mis-Match on Marimekko Pattern

November 7, 2019


Whoops! Someone at the wallpaper factory let the trimming machine go a little cattywhompus!

The result is a slight miss in the match of this pattern.

Not a big deal. It’s a wild, wacky pattern to begin with, and from a distance it’s barely noticeable.

I did make sure to get the homeowner’s OK before moving ahead.

What A Fun Entry To Come Home To!

October 14, 2018


This entry is open to the living, dining, and kitchen areas of a neatly modernized home in the Briar Park neighborhood of Houston. It was originally white. Needless to say, it wasn’t very interesting.

The homeowner chose this “Larkspur” pattern in navy blue by Serena & Lily. Boy, does this ever change things! It adds a cherry welcome when you walk through the door.

But it also sets a fun tone for the whole rest of the home. All the furnishings in the rooms are pretty subdued, so this slightly wacky pattern really jazzes things up! There is a small amount of blue in the living room rug and in a few accessories, so the navy color of the wallpaper pulls all that together.

S & L is nice paper to work with.

This home in the Meyerland area of Houston had been nicely updated, and had a sleek, slightly contemporary feel. The homeowner wanted something “crazy” to liven up the entry wall, which is open to the living room, dining room, and kitchen.

Well, here you have crazy! But the pattern is not too wild or overwhelming, because of the subdued colors. The colors coordinate with the rest of the first floor, and the little bit of color really bring life to the house.

This paper is by A-Street Prints, by Brewster, and is a non-woven material, and a paste-the-wall product.
