Wall coverings are a great way to give an existing bathroom a fun, new, updated look. While I see them used in many different rooms, I personally prefer to wallpaper small rooms such as powder rooms and laundry rooms.
If you’re overwhelmed by the thought of print on an entire room, one way to break things up is to use bead board along the bottom half of the walls. Bead board can be horizontal or vertical, painted white, or even mahogoney. Be creative when it comes up picking out your wall coverings and bead board.
I’ve found that the best place to find nautical/coastal printed wallpaper is at Ralph Lauren Home. They have an abundance of map and chart prints, nautical knot prints, and seaside prints. They can sometimes be hard to find, but be sure to check out Steve’s Blind’s and Wallpaper. They have a wide selection of Ralph Lauren books and are great to work with…and better yet, their selections are often on sale.
