Goodbye beige

I had been firmly in the "no paint until after the 10 month mark" camp, thinking that I'd live in the space, start thinking about color, get those nail pops fixed and then start painting. Well, that was before I moved into a beige box.

So, I give you room 1 of the "need color" project: my office.

Walls are a dark grey and wallpaper is not photographing that well, but yes, grey, and orange! 

Many many thanks to the husband who painted the room last week as a surprise while I was on business travel. And also to my mother who kindly put her wallpaper skills to work for me.

Now I just need some window treatments -- probably blinds and a cool box valence -- and pictures on the walls. I've got a stack of really cool old mimeograph instructions and stencils from the 50s/60s that I inherited from my grandmother. Hoping to frame and hang some of those.

  3. I'm typically not a fan of wallpaper but I LOVE yours. The coordinating accent lamp is a nice touch too. :) I can't wait until you post more rooms with color (I need some inspiration!)

  5. GREAT JOB, WJ! I definitely plan on using wall paper throughout my home. The wall paper line has changed tremendously. I have chosen the same color office furniture because of my espresso floors. :-)

  6. That looks fantastic! I love it! You have great taste. We are also trying to wait to paint... But the beige walls remind me of my apartment and it's boring... Only problem is I can't commit to a color for the rooms. lol.

  7. I considered waiting to paint but there is no way that's happening! My husband works for Sherwin Williams and I am a painting fanatic (I don't even have to tape edges anymore). For me, painting will make my house transform from a house to OUR home and I cannot wait 10 months to start that. As for wallpaper, I love your choice!!! So bold and classy at the same time. It is making me reconsider my "no wallpaper" policy. Hmmmmmm.....
