Papered Powder Rooms

I’ve long preferred paint over wallpaper (too many hours spent stripping paper in an aunt’s kitchen I think) but these pretty bathrooms have me reconsidering. Graphic wallpaper is perfect for small rooms like bathrooms and closets where you can make a big statement without worrying about how to decorate around it. 

The forever chic Scalamandré zebra paper that I swooned over in Kate Spade’s bathroom is again gorgeous with gold accents and exposed plumbing. I swear this design firm can do no wrong!
How darling is this black and white chair pattern? It reminds me of Annechovie‘s wildly chic chair prints. Note the black ceiling — design is in the details.
Monogrammed hand towels are the perfect finishing touch in this floral bath. What a welcoming addition for guests!
Have you wallpapered any rooms in your house? Do you restrict bold patterns to smaller rooms? And lastly have you seen Jonathan Adler‘s insane collection of wallpaper? To die for.

  1. Loving them all and yes, I agree with Will above that the Zebra print is lovely. Have drooled over it before and don’t seem to tire of it. Also love the one from Lonny. So fresh.

    Your guest post over at Mon’s today was lovely. Sounds like a very special place.

  2. I guess I never really considered wallpaper as an option because it seemed so old-lady (no offense!), but your post has made me think differently. It can be done in a cool, modern way. Awesome post.
