Sometimes a little old timey pattern is all a tired old room needs to totally transform. If you’ve got a room with charming old bones like moulding, wood floors and great old windows, why not play up the features and create a special, romantic little hideaway that feels like the attic bedroom in an old farm house? That’s exactly what I did here…
This charming Thibaut wallpaper had just the old fashioned floral motif I was after (plus I’m a sucker for geraniums). In order to get the aged feeling I wanted, I actually took a small power sander to the walls! The results were fantastic and had me totally excited!
Adding vintage accessories and classic antique furnishings furthered our dramatic makeover from student flophouse to artistic respite. I’m always on the hunt for old bottles like this; they’re the perfect way to display a sprig of this or that.
Note, we didn’t wallpaper the whole room, just a few key walls. In the end it felt like the wallpaper had always been there with it’s muddy green trim and things had evolved over time. Just the way I like it. Hope you do too!
