Why do we shy away from wallpaper?
I get it. I shy away from it because I don’t know how to install it....but I know I could install it if I really wanted to. I actually coach people on HOW TO install it when I specify it for my clients homes. Some of my adventurous clients install it themselves. But when it came to my own little bathroom, I hired someone to install it for me. I was afraid I would mess it up... the beauty of wall paper is that you can place it on the wall with the glue intact and if it’s not right, then lift it back off and replace it. Why does this scare me???!!!! Not sure, but I seriously want to wallpaper my whole house now.
This pretty pattern I chose for my little bathroom is one of Maxwell’s exquisite patterns, Lenora #4 from their Expressions in Fabric, wallpaper line. I love that the background color is this sort of ecru white with the detailed flowers in an inky black and subtly accented with a shimmery gold...! This was the inspiration piece that set off the decor for the whole room. More about that bathroom later.....
My advice, if you find a wallpaper you love? GO FOR IT!
