...because home doesn't happen overnight.


Congrats to Chloe! She is hoping a little wallpaper will transform her closet-turned-powder room into a hidden gem for guests. What a fun idea!

Wallpaper has come a long way since the days of granny floral. I have seen several recent wallpaper installations by some of my favorite stylists {ahem, Kirsten Grove and Emily Henderson just off the top of my head} that don’t scream “trendy!” and really feel like they could stand the test of time.

WHILE YOU’RE AT IT: I know you’re thinking about it…where would you like to see wallpaper living in your house? We hung removable wallpaper in the boys’ shared bedroom. If we had a powder room {which we don’t} I would totally cover it in something fabulous!

Whenever a H*T reader wins a product or piece of furniture, I’m always curious to see where it ends up in their home. Most of the time I never receive a followup email with images included. I completely understand. These things take time and life is busy. Believe me, I get it. So when this happy lil’ powder room showed up in my inbox last week, I was giddy! Back in the fall of 2013, Chloe won a credit to purchase wallpaper via a giveaway I hosted. She chose Mountains Sunrise by MissPrint and lined the walls of a closet-turned-powder room. The results speak for themselves.

So cute! I can only imagine what it must feel like to be a guest and open the door to the loo. Such a fun surprise! You can read more about Chloe’s powder room on her blog where she shares the DIY wallpaper installation and how to hang items without ruining wallpaper. Chloe, thank you so much for passing along photos of your wallpapered powder room.
