When 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.
In my 50s bathrooms, the tile went up the wall exactly 47″ — see my tile posts — then wallpapering above this line. 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.
