Flamingo’s and hula girls for your perky retro bathroom – from Thibaut

flamingo-bay-seaside-collection-thibaut.jpgWhen my kitchen was on the historic home tour this summer, visitors were so enthralled with the aquamarine steel kitchen, that that started to joke with the docent, “Where’s the flamingo wallpaper?”

Well, she had to pop open the basement bathroom, because there is was! I used a Waverly paper from their now-defunct Kitchen Kitsch collection. But I recently found these great papers from Thibaut. This company makes wonderful, high quality papers. Their flamingo wallpaper is less kitschy, but still great for a bathroom. Ditto, the hula girl wallpaper. There are several color fields including nice creams, blues – even aqua.

A nice mix of textures and patterns and an oh-so-cheerful way to start each and every day! Thibaut has a great and very user-friendly website – check it out.hula-roomset_550.jpg

      The story you are reading is nine years old, so I don’t know if the wallpaper is still available. The company is Thibaut — you can go online to their site to see if it’s still available.
