When I bought the city house, if you remember, I had lists of things that it had to have - three car garage, large lot, all hardwood floors and tile, no upstairs
and on and on. It all went out the window when I found this house.
I could live with the NO lists except for one thing. The kitchen, the study and this powder room were a burgundyish red. I'm like a bull when I see red. I like whites and creams (the rest of the house) and pastels, not deep jewel tones. These had to be painted before I moved in. All except for this powder room. There wasn't time to redo it and personally, picking wallpaper is so difficult for me. It is overwhelming. Just too much of it to look at.
I'm tempted to just paint over it so I don't have to look at it. I see wallpaper in magazines that I like, but gah... It is unbelievably expensive and even though this powder room is small, it has six walls to match up. Believe it or not, large prints look good in small rooms. I love Laura Ashley prints and so many others. But, I also love the Martinique pattern that is famous from the early 1900's and designed specifically for the Beverly Hills Hotel. I don't know why I like it, I just do. See below.
I also like newer patterns as in the one below.
I won't bore you with more pictures as there are probably a thousand different patterns I like. I think interior decorating would be such a hard job. If only I could open the door and poof - all bought and hung and beautiful. Sigh.
