Wallpaper As Inspiration



For the feature wall in this powder bath, I was inspired by this whimsical wallpaper by Neisha Crosland. Look at her wonderful designs (wallpaper, fabric, accessories and even clothing) at www.neishacrosland.com. For my purpose I simplified the pattern and distilled the color palette to a single color, painting the floral and leaf pattern over Devine Paint's Blade green. The effect is exactly what I was hoping for, delightfully fun without overwhelming the room.

  1. Love the chandelier. Who makes it? Is it sold to the trade only? Thanks.....Just came across your posts on HGTV's Rate My Space. I think you have a great eye. Too bad you don't live in the Bay Area anymore. I would definitely hire you.

  2. Hi 'hipsandgables', I wish I could direct you to a source to purchase this chandelier (and I would be right there myself getting a couple more)! I found this vintage light fixture at a store in Portland, OR. called 3 Monkeys, on 23rd Street. Thanks for your feedback! Janell
