When you are a designer, you don’t always get to use the crazy, fun fabrics and wallpapers that come through the office.  Clients, for the most part, tend to get a little nervous about making big statements or using colors outside their comfort zone (blue, blue and more blue- hahaha!) The one space my clients sometimes go bold is the powder room. But would any go THIS bold? I’ve loved this crazy Pierre Frey paper in this mustard/blue/red/pink/ plum colorway for a long time, and the other day I pulled it out and thought I’d pull a scheme together, another “Pretend Client” situation.  We decided in the office that this client would probably be a VERY faaaaaaaancy lady with a brownstone in NYC– maybe a little preppy but sassy, in her 50’s and living alone for the first time in a long time and ready to make spacer her own!

The ceiling would be painted F&B’s Cook’s Blue, complimenting hand towels and other accents.  I’d break up the crazy busy paper with a large abstract, minimalist piece of art and install a modern vanity with brass legs.  A little hint of raffia/rattan doesn’t hurt either…. :)
