One of the only rooms that was not given a full design makeover by the previous owner of our house was our main floor powder room.  It’s a tiny little bathroom underneath the stairs that currently sports yellow and black striped wallpaper on the upper half followed by a ledge running around the entire bathroom and a bottom half painted white.  The floor is black and white tile which I assume is vintage to the 1880’s house.

The wallpaper is really dull and boring and changing it would be such an easy way to upgrade the space.

The area where the wallpaper will show is small which means not a high cost (yay!) but it also means that I will need to make sure the scale fits for the space.  A lot of these have patterns that are too big but I wanted to show them anyways as I really love them.

I’ve always been one for bold statements and I think a real wow wallpaper in this space would be perfect.  Wallpaper is pretty pricey, but the space we need it is relatively tiny so I think that we could actually end up getting quite a bit of bang for our buck.

I really want it to be a surprise when people open the door.  A big impact in a tiny space.

I’m also going to check out Empire Wallpapers here in Montreal which a lot of people have recommended.

What do you think?  Would you choose any of these wallpapers?  What do you think about the scorpion wallpaper at the very top?  Pretty wild!

Originally from the prairies and now in Montreal, I love exploring new places, eating great food and modern design. I'm mom of two wild things and paper and cake make me happy. Photographing your cutie family would make me very happy.
