Project Dollhouse Master Bathroom Wallpaper - Final Rose

Monday, August 20, 2012

I'm just about ready to pull the trigger on the wallpaper for my master bathroom, but I wanted to run the selections by you before I place the order.  I've looked at lots of options, and have finally narrowed it down to two!  

Do you remember when I posted about Rose Cumming's Zebrine wallpaper?  It's amazing yet not even close to being in my budget.  Luckily, I happened upon a much more affordable option that looks pretty good.


I also received a sample of this paper months ago from Design Your Walls and I love it, too. It's much more vibrant in person, and definitely more teal than blue.

Some other things you should know:  Although it's the master bathroom, the house was built in 1972, and its pretty tiny as far as master bathrooms go; so even though both papers are bold, they'll be confined to a small area.  Also, we kept the original cultured marble counter tops that look similar to this, only mine have a little gold glitter embedded in the design.

We have also installed this tile from Home Depot on the floor.  It's mostly gray with some veining action.
Also,  the original bathroom cabinets have been given a coat of white paint, and I'll be adding brass ring pulls.  Are you still with me?

Option 1 is the zebra bathroom.  
I know, the mirrors! They're from Bassett.  Art is from Etsy artist Tastesorangey.  Fabric is Malakos Malachite from Dwell Studio, and I would use it for the shower curtain.

Option 2 is the teal ikat wallpaper bathroom:

Art is from Kerry Steele, mirrors are from Lowes, and the shower curtain is from Target.  

So, I'm 99% sure of which option I'll choose.   Care to guess?  Or tell me which option you prefer.

Hmmm I'm favoring number 2 personally, but number one would be fun too!

I like the garden seat in #1 and the mirrors in # 2. I am guessing that you are leaning towards #1 although I still have that nude if you decide otherwise. :)

I am gaga for brass ring pulls, they look great on so many things.

LOVE #1, and I agree brass pulls make anything look fabulous!

I love the second wallpaper, makes the whole space seem so crisp!

Splendid Sass said...

I love them both, Kim! Difficult decision. No secret I am a zebra freak.
Can't wait to see the finished bath.
Happy Monday.

Hands down number 1! Love the classic yet bold look of it all! I know we're working with similar hotel 9 style bathrooms and I went very neutral with my recent redo. I just painted the walls gray. Now I'm wishing I had gone bold like you. So fun!!

Cris Angsten said...

I vote for the zebra... only because, if you get tired of the green (perish the thought!) you can "redecorate" very easily!

I was totally in love with #1 until I saw #2! They are both beautiful options and I can't wait to see what you choose!

charmaine said...

They are both beautiful but I'm leaning towards #1.

Albertina said...

I'm loving number one!! I think it would be amazing...tell us what you decide on!

Matters of Style said...

Both are beautiful, but my vote is #2!

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

I love them both, but I think #2

Sherri Cassara said...

I'm thinking your number one choice is the first one - but my vote is for the second - it is "pretty" (and I know how much you like pretty) and I am a sucker for blue. The shower curtain is from Target? Seriously?
Either way I know you will finish them beautifully. Now hurry and get it done so we can see it all finished :D

Taylor Greenwalt said...

Shoot, there both great, but I lean towards the 1st one. Cant wait to see which one your going to choose.

Haus and Home said...

Tough decision! Can't wait to see which one you choose and the final design!

SHERRY HART said...

I am like 49% number 1 and 51% number 2....both are fabulous!

Titti @ Shoestring Pavilion said...

I vote for zebra and green! Such a classy combo with lots of wow. Less sure about the mirrors and art for that option (because of the busyness, mainly) but I'm sure you know what you're doing. Happy decorating!

PriscilaPetersDecor said...

For a master bathroom, I would go with #2. If it was for a half bathroom or a guest bathroom, I would go with #1.
Both are very cool!

StagerLinda said...

I vote #1. I tend to like strong design over 'pretty'. Love the green with the zebra and how the painting pulls it all together!

Jenny Castle Design said...

Tough choice, they are both amazing! I think number two is my favorite, but either would be a stand out! Can't wait to see what you do.

I'm a number 2 girl myself. Can't wait to see it either way. - Brandy

Carol@HouseandHomeDefined.com said...

I would seriously love both. Could you make it a tougher choice? :) I'm for #1, I mean #2, I mean...#2.

The Pink Pagoda said...

Option #1 all the way. With the exception of Kerry's art. Although I know she has gorgeous options with green : ) That malachite fabric is to die for.

Holly said...

I'm late to the game to weigh in on this one, but I love option 2. But there are elements of both that I love - the art, the mirrors.

I LOVE the teal wallpaper!!!!!
