Note: I know Tuesdays are for kitchen updates, but today I figured we’d take a quick break and chat about the other BIG project that is happening during the kitchen reno — the bathroom makeover! I hope you don’t mind…
In Search of The Perfect Wallpaper

As you guys know, we are gutting the half-bath attached to our kitchen and making over that space at the same time as we renovate the kitchen. This space is very small so I think I have room to go bold! I figured if I’m ever going to step outside of my “safe” comfort zone, this bathroom is the place to make it happen. For someone who is always playing it safe when it comes to decor (and life!), I’m excited to push my limits a little bit. That’s where the idea of adding wallpaper was born.
But then I thought to myself, “where are the best places to buy wallpaper these days?!” <– surely it can’t be those same old-school wallpaper books my dad used to bring home for us to play with when we were little?

Our Bathroom’s Wallpaper Plans
I will most definitely share the design plan for this small space when I figure out what that is! I figured I’d start with the wallpaper and then choose the rest of the fixtures and details around that.
Right now I’m loving this option, this option, this option, this option, and this option. They’re all very different BUT I can see them all working well in this space. Serena and Lily offers free wallpaper samples, so I do have an order in so I can check out my favorite options from there. Obviously, I’m all over the board, so I have lots of decisions to make before we get started.
In the meantime, I’ll be sharing any developments on Insta Stories. And you can also count on me asking for your opinion A LOT on this bathroom remodel because going “bold” is a lot outside of my comfort zone. But I’m excited! Let’s do this!
