An Argument for Wallpaper (Part 3-The Bath)

Bathrooms are a space where you can go a little nutty; a bit crazy if you like with wallpaper. The spaces are typically smaller and you don't really spend all that much time in them. A bold wallpaper is great for a bit a drama.

Like in Gwyneth Paltrow's bath where she used Imperial Trellis (can you tell I am obsessed) in tone-on-tone black. It looks so crisp and fresh with the white cabinet.

The reflective nature of this paper has a wonderful masculine feel with the darker tones.

I love the light vine feel of this paper with the painted commode. So sophisticated and airy.

This Scalamandre' wallcovering was originally designed in the 40's for Gino's restaurant in NYC. Movie fanatics may remember it from Royal Tennenbaum's as it graced the bathroom in their home and appears in the background of a scene with Gwyneth Paltrow. I love the zebra motif.

This paper with the floral and branches is fab-tastic. So colorful and fresh.

A more subtle approach in a bold pattern. I really like the way it works with the grey counter top and vintage floor.

Such an unusual pattern and fabulous colors. It take a petite 1/2 Bathroom and makes it something really special.

This yellow and grey botanical plays nicely off of the marble floor and shower. It warms up the space and makes it a bit softer.

Bathrooms make such a great place for wallpaper. If you don't want to commit any where else in your house consider the statement you can make in a bath.
