What Houzz contributors are saying:
17. This Hollywood Regency-inspired wallpaper harks back to a bygone era full of glamour and glitz. It’s sophisticated yet subtle and adds just enough color without overwhelming the space.Wallpaper: Bamboo, Cowtan & Tout
9. Hang a statement mirror over bold wallpaper. Just one or the other would be great; together they make a memorable design statement. Fretwork or lattice wallpaper is a mainstay of Palm Beach interiors; for mirrors, you can’t go wrong with lacquered faux bamboo.
Find furnishings with smaller-scaled designs. Fabric isn’t the only element to consider when pairing patterns; furnishings will also do the trick. As always, scale is everything. Try a mirror with a smaller-scale Greek key pattern with this green bamboo paper for a bathroom that is both funky and fresh.
Fretwork also is the inspiration for patterns seen on many wallpapers and fabrics. Here a fretwork mirror hung over wallpaper featuring a fretwork trellis pattern creates an intriguing combination. Tip: Don't be afraid of layering patterns in a room for a dynamic result.
This powder bathroom and the following are designed by Elizabeth Dinkel (as are two others in this Ideabook), and share a lot of common elements. Each is light, fresh and sophisticated. This version is wallpapered from floor to ceiling with a beautiful trellis pattern and I am particularly intrigued by the white lattice mirror layered over the wallpaper.
3. Don't run to a big box store and grab typical cabinets, mirrors, and light fixtures. Look at how beautiful this mirror is. It allows the trellis print wallpaper to show through. Also, pay attention to light fixtures. These sconces are the icing on the cake.
