hello! + wallpaper in small spaces

hi again! i’m not going to sit here and make excuses as to why i haven’t posted since the fourth of july (oops) but lets just say it was a long crazy (but good!) summer trying to keep a busy two year old entertained. but i’d really like to come back and be here more consistently.

anyway, i’ve been wanting to experiment with a statement wallpaper in a small space (one of the bathrooms, the entry, the linen closet, butler’s pantry or even the back of a wardrobe or secretary desk).

some inspiration:

»we are toying with the idea of hosting thanksgiving here and if we do, i think i need to finally bite the bullet.

»starting to form thoughts (perhaps even darker grout?) on a phase 1 bathroom reno. (sidenote- our house is c 1926 but has a small addition with a full, yet tiny, bathroom. it has been updated .1% aka they painted the wall/ shower tile, which isn’t horrible but pretty bad. but the kicker is the 1968 floor tile. its that shades of yellow/ beige and different size square look. super chic. 😐 sooo to make the bathroom a little more bearable until we can really make it pretty, i’d like to put new floor tile in, paint the vanity (which is currently some sort of light wood) and paint the walls. or maybe if i’m feeling sassy maybe some dramatic wallpaper (here, here, here) ?
