Wallpaper Episode 24 (Farrow and Ball Spring 2019)
If your looking to make a bold statement and feeling brave choose a dominant print . If you are concerned about a large print looking too much or being over-powering you can break it up using molding or a chair rail.
I often get clients looking at paint options for their powder room and I always steer them in the direction wallpaper as an option to transform this space and gain a little incremental confidence with wall paper. It can be a dramatic way to give your powder room a punch.
The Hornbeam print is inspired by Farrow and Ball’s Dorset (England) roots and time spent in the nearby Isle of Purbeck. Hornbeam celebrates hedgerows that are characteristic of the British countryside. What is great about Farrow and Ball wallpaper is that’s its stain resistant and wipeable, so its perfect for any powder room and would also look incredible in a laundry room.
The Bumble Wallpaper is a personal favorite. What I enjoy about Farrow & ball are the stories behind every wallpaper print and paint name. For instance, the Bumble Bee was originally found in Josephine Bonaparte’s bed chamber as a silk fabric. Featuring an enchanted myriad of a bumble bee and sprinkled with a cheeky polka dots, that is a hypnotic design that inspires a beguiling sense of childish innocence and playfulness. This wallpaper is great for all ages and is certainly very eye-catching. It certainly gets a lot of love when I show clients in the studio and I have a personal love of this depiction as the bumble bee was adopted as the symbol of Manchester (England).
