Considering how many of you left comments professing your love for the wallpaper in my dressing room reveal the other day, I have a feeling this house tour that I discovered on Lonny with have you feeling equally giddy with its shots of glamour, beautiful details and – yes – rooms upon rooms filled with bold wallpaper.
Hello insane kitchen. And by insane, I mean how crazy i’d go trying to keep an acrylic island clean, but man is it unique! I also love the floating shelves in the prep area to the right. But most importantly…
That wallpaper! A little dalmatian dot never hurt, right? I loved seeing this chandelier in the dining room, as we have the smaller version in our own dining room! It’s a favorite of mine – we recommend it to clients all the time as it has such a great classic meets modern feel.
The vibe that owner and designer Katie Kime brings to the whole house is uniquely hers. The patterned papers are all from her own line, and her love of color is evident throughout.
In the formal dining room, there’s a whole different version of wallpaper in one of my favorite styles – grasscloth!
The seams in this paper never align, so they drive some people crazy, but I love the texture it brings to a room. This space has quite the eclectic vibe going on between that fuchsia overdyed rug, marbleized fabric on the dining chairs, and oversized lights (and art!). The formal dining room is definitely the place for drama! And speaking of which…
I wish they had a shot of those ‘barn’ doors (can you even call them that when they look so fancied up?) because I’ve never seen them in that style before! Overall, the living room actually has a lot of basics, but it’s the accessories that turn things up a notch with playful pillows, striped ottomans and these bold table lamps.
Upstairs in the hall, a return to the grasscloth, but with a punch of wallpaper on the ceiling! There is never a missed opportunity for pattern in this home, that’s for sure. Even the stairs and hallway rug add to the mix. For color, this might be my favorite moment in the house – both because it’s unexpected and warm.
The girl’s room also has a unique wall treatment, but it’s not exactly wallpaper…
What feels like a thousand faux florals blanket the walls of this super fun bedroom! You’ll notice again the eclectic mix of patterns in the bedding, headboard and rug. What a bright and cheerful space to call your own! The adjoined bathroom is just as cheerful too…
Ok, so I lied. THIS might be my favorite room in the house! The colors and scale in the wallpaper and fabric are so fantastic and fresh at the same time! Naturally, you have to pair these bees with honeycomb tiles and a chic navy vanity.
The masted bedroom serves as a bit of a visual retreat from the rest of the house with more subdued colors and less pattern, but still every bit as fabulous.
And the master closet? Well, it’s every bit as exquisite as you would hope it would be! If my dressing room made you envious, this one with throw you into fits.
So much space! And light! I love all the little sections – it feels like you’re in a boutique. I think I’d enjoy having all my ‘dress up’ clothes in one area, the basics in another, perhaps sorted by season…
And of course a floating island for shoes and accessories. Of course.
So what say you my friends? Are you swooning just as much as I am over this home? Which room is your favorite? They’re all so unique! If you’re dying to get the look, or at least add a few of these accents, here’s how we’d do it!
1. chandelier | 2. katie kime wallpaper | 3. black bamboo dining room chairs| 4. acrylic bar cart | 5. pink overdyed rug | 6. striped ottoman pouf | 7. faux fox fur throw | 8. yellow patterned quilt | 9. splatter paint pillow| 10. brass shade pendant
What I find so interesting about this house is that overall it feels really cohesive, but more because of its playful attitude than a singular style. Certainly, every room has a bit of traditional glamour to it, but the abundance of color and prints and mix of styles make it hard to define! The elements we pulled out here are just the beginning!
