Like animals? Like the forest? Like a little whimsy? Then this wallpaper pattern is for you!

I hung this in a children’s bathroom in a very nicely remodeled 1939 brick cottage in Montrose (inner Houston). The bottom 1/3 of the walls was shiny white subway tile, and the straight-lined vanity cabinets below were painted a strong, glossy yellow. The navy blue wallpaper pattern looked smart against the white tile, and the color perfectly complimented the yellow cabinetry.

This wallpaper pattern is called “Otomi,” and is in the Emily Isabella line by Hygge & West. This wallpaper can be bought on-line.

This is a new build in the Woodland Heights neighborhood of Houston. I papered an accent wall in a guest bathroom in the home. Kind of unusual to do just one wall in a bathroom, because bathrooms tend to be chopped up, and it looks better to have a homogeneous treatment to all the walls. But this guest bath was large, and had a long, uninterrupted wall behind the sink / mirror. And this turned out to be perfect as a feature wall with wallpaper.

This is a dramatic wall full of color and whimsy. The manufacturer is Walnut. The paper had to be hand-trimmed, to remove the selvedge edge, which is an exacting and tedious process. See photo.

Aside from the crazy pattern match (see other post), this wallpaper was a joy to work with, and it will hold up nicely in the bathroom environment.

Heads In The Sand On A TV Wall

The homeowner saw this paper and fell in love with it. She wanted it on an accent wall in the living room; a big-screen TV will be mounted on the wall.

The home has a mid-century modern vibe to it, and is in the far west section of Oak Forest (Houston). The wallpaper manufacturer is Bespoke, a British company.

This pattern is darned cute – I have hung it before, in fact. I knew it would look good on the wall, but it wasn’t until I had finished and stepped back that I got the whole picture, and grasped just how perfect this paper is for this room.

The big birds add a clever bit of whimsy to the room, and, because the design is printed with only one color, there is not a lot of busyness to distract the eye.

Personally, I think I would rather look at the wallpaper, than watch the TV. 😉
