Wallpapered bathrooms: Trend or travesty?
My obsession with wallpaper is no secret, but I wondered what you thought of a sub-set obsession with wallpapering the bathroom. My bathroom is a nightmare of pipes and gross black bits, but if I was redoing it I’d defo be after the sort of look gracing the cover of this month’s World of Interiors.
I didn’t read the one about the world’s richest bloke and his plane, but nice coverline. Anyway, so there is something about the Parisian version of granny-chic that I especially like about the room above. What about you? Before you tell me water and wallpaper don’t mix allow me to offer my (only) useful decorating tip: paint a layer of matt Decorator’s Varnish over the wallpaper and it’ll be fine. I did the same in my kitchen and had the pleasure of wiping an old coffee stain off the wallpaper with a damp cloth just this morning. No harm done.
Before you comment you might also like to check out these examples at Ugly House Photos*, and ponder the fact that I actually don’t see any of them as an argument against what I’m calling a… trend.
