I am well underway with this job and hope to have it completed in a few days, but will start from the beginning to show you the transformation.
When I was pulling together design and finish options for this area, I had in mind that it would flow with the adjacent back hall I had just completed.
The carpet was staying, so I had to work the small floral, diamond pattern in with whatever I came up with.
The ceilings are low, 7'5", so I felt I needed a design that would give this space some visual height and not close it it, as the wallpaper did.
I had come across this wallpaper pattern online somewhere, and I'm sorry to say, I don't know where. I liked the way the flowers were in vertical rows. I saw Melanie Royal of Royal Design Studio was posting some new pics on Facebook of her latest stencil designs, so I sent her this pic and asked if she had anything in an over scale, vertical floral design coming out. Well, lo and behold...Melanie to the rescue! Ask and it shall be yours!
It is called Phoebe's Tulip and comes in two different sizes. This photo is from the Royal Design Stencil website.
I showed it to my client and she said "no flowers". :-( Well... when I looked at the Tulips and then at her wallpaper, I could see her point. But, there are floral patterns everywhere in this house, so I new she loved flowers, but just wanted a change from the all over repeat pattern she now had with the wallpaper.
I was determined to make Phoebe's Tulip work!
To be continued...
