I’m in the process of selecting a wallpaper for a client’s first floor lavatory. As we all know, small bathrooms are a great place to experiment with bold pattern and I’m excited that the client is on board with adding a little wow factor into the space. I’ve narrowed down the selections to a general “tree” theme in blacks, whites and grays. This is part of a rural farmhouse addition, so we’re a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, as Donnie and Marie would say. The papers I’m looking at are from Designer’s Guild (top left), Osborne & Little (top right, bottom left) and Graham & Brown (bottom right).
I think #1 and #2 are my favorites. The O&L papers have too much metallic shine to them. I love the Designer’s Guild paper – it looks totally hand sketched. And I love the Graham & Brown for the color contrast. To my eye, however, the Designer’s Guild paper really makes the room feel taller because there is less contrast and the trees are so vertical.
Do you have a preference?
