Going Green

Top of my 2017 home improvement list is to wallpaper or paint my bathroom green. These three images are my inspiration.

  • If memory serves me, the top photo is from the most heavenly generational family home in Newport – it caught my eye because the descendants wisely preserved rather than replaced almost everything. I share the exact vintage wrought iron furniture, something which is finally enjoying it’s due resurgence! The green bathrooms, along with soft blue and ivory, will never tire!! Can’t wait to see the finished room!

  • Truly glorious- if I had to replicate from one of these I’d be in trouble and need three bathrooms!

  • I have the brunschwig wallpaper in the top right photo, in brown color way it is so beautiful and makes me so happy!

  • The rooms depicted are lovely. Very peaceful! We just ordered the samples for a new line of color on offer by Domingue in Houston. They are mineral based and appear to offer a pretty palette. Just more food for thought! If anyone cares to look – http://dominguefinishes.com.

    btw: No endorsement or anything, just thought I’d share a new purveyor. Thanks!

  • Hi Katinka- I, too, have this Brunschwig and fils fabric all through my home, it’s my favorite.

  • These are beautiful — but, from someone who has tried it and repainted, you’ll never be able to put on makeup in a green bathroom!

  • In the early 1900s Alice Roosevelt Longworth reputedly danced the Hootchy Kootchy on the roof of Beaulieu during a house party hosted by her close friend Grace Wilson Vanderbilt. Good times.

  • I, too, have Bird & Thistle, in Brown. Love it.
