Ever since wallpaper has been making such a comeback, I’ve been wanting to find a place in our home where I could use it without much risk or regret.
I finally determined our small bath off the kitchen was the perfect spot. Plain, blue, and blah, I could hear it crying out for a little pizazz.
So for the past year I was online hunting for unique wallpaper. Should I go modern, floral, traditional? Options abound and could I trust my own taste? I also visited the Design and Decorating Building in NYC (called “The D&D”) to look at some papers in person. So many gorgeous choices gave me visions of grandeur (for more like a bathroom at the Biltmore than one for mostly men.)
Finally, I settled on a style from Bennison, gorgeous oranges and pinks, sort of modern. Then, uh oh, sticker shock, just too pricey for my budget ($3000 for wallpapering a small bath?? Maybe at the Biltmore.)
Okay, plan B. Searching, searching, searching…….and then, there it was, calling out to me from a new online magazine called Lonny Magazine, a gorgeous toile wallpaper by Manuel Canovas. Yes pinks and oranges but much more affordable.
Ordered the paper, hired the paper hanger, added a few flea market and antique shop finds and waalah, a transformed bathroom that even the guys agree may be the classiest room in the house. See what you think….
