It's hard to believe that we've been living in our home for about five years, but still have a number of rooms that are untouched. The process of decorating/designing ones house a home takes time and I am thrilled with the progress made so far! This bathroom is upstairs where Ian's room is and was in need so some tlc. Since his bedroom was updated, I thought his bathroom should be too.
It was a simple makeover and I was able to work with the lovely folks at Chasing Paper. I chose the triangle paper designed by illustrator and wallpaper designer, Kate Zaremba. Kate's limited edition collection line in collaboration with Chasing Paper launches tomorrow, June 15th.
Can you believe it- the walls were painted barely beige. Blasphemy, right?

Ok, so get this- the wallpaper is peel and stick. Yes-it's removable! A stylish way to transform any space, Chasing Paper features peel and stick fabric that is simple to install, easy to remove. The paper is also super sturdy. Even Don(wallpaper installer) commented on how strong it is. I chose the triangle pattern because it's fun and I thought it perfect for a child's space.
Kate Zaremba's limited edition features five prints in Black Swan, Bright Eyes, Flora, Muse Variations and Triangles, the collection will retail for $50 per 2 ft. x 4 ft. panel in June 15 for 6-weeks only at Chasing Paper.
I painted the bathroom after the wallpaper was installed(in hindsight, I should've painted before the paper was installed). Since I love to paint so much, I have quite a bit of left over paint in the garage. I decided to use the Benjamin Moore White Dove that I used in this room. The white pairs beautifully with the color way of the triangle paper.
Believe it or not, I also had that blue paint I used for the door. I color matched Benjamin Moore Blue Symphony with Valspar for another project and still had almost a gallon left over. I thought it would make the perfect pop and i was right. It also picks up on the dark blue in the paper.
Ian approves and is fond of all those colorful triangles. He also told me to paint the bath tub blue too. Haha!
