HAMPTON DESIGNER SHOWHOUSE ROOM PREP AND WALLCOVERING INSTALL

With the opening of the Hampton Designer Showhouse less than a week away I've been in overdrive getting the room prepped and ready and can finally share with you some room progress! 
The jump off point for the overall design of my bedroom suite was definitely the wallpaper. With sloped ceilings that ran from 8 to 13 feet, I needed a stylish unifier for the bedroom which would come from the wallcovering.  I chose Phillip Jeffries Moroccan in Elephant, a Moorish inspired design in a soothing grey that adds a contemporary, sophisticated flair to the room. 
The day the wall covering went up I held my breath--there was a lot of paper!  Because of the tricky ceiling, I had to make a lot of decisions as to which walls and ceilings I wanted the paper to cover. I knew I wanted  the ceiling over the bed area to be papered, which lends the area a cosy, intimate feel.
I'm so happy with the paper!  When you enter the room, you don't notice the disparity in ceiling height--you're focused on the great pattern.
Tomorrow--I'm sharing with you room lighting--a pendant with lots of glamour!
