Wallpaper in the Bathroom? Yes, please!

Latest  in category

I know this isn’t for everyone

I get it. Wallpaper is not everyone’s favorite thing. But in case you didn’t know or you are still fighting it, wallpaper is back and in a big way. But one of my favorite spaces to see it in is the bathroom. It’s a small space that makes a big impact and it feels like a place that allows for some drama and fun and a little something unexpected.

Our gym bathroom

We are in the process of designing and building a new home. And I know for sure that I want to incorporate wallpaper into a few of our spaces – one of them being the gym bathroom. It will have a really beautiful terracotta floor and the shower tile will be white. It’s the perfect place to add some fun with pop of color and visual interest. Plus, I want a European inspired style and I think including wallpaper, especially a really pretty water color one like the one I have my heart set on below will help me achieve the look I am going for.
