Bathing Beauty

We are wallpaper fans at Eco Chic, as it’s a very effective way of transforming a room without structural changes. Just think of the dramatic results achieved by wallpapers offering such things as faux brick finishes, library shelves and scenic vistas. 
Alternatively, more subtle changes can be brought about with an unusual wallpaper creatively used, as shown in this bathroom from House Beautiful. 
Such a dominant wallpaper isn’t an obvious choice for a small space, but one of the golden rules of decorating is to use large scale features in small rooms as it opens them up and lends an air of grandeur.  The sprawling botanic design of this paper is beautifully complemented by the dark tone of the ornate mirror and flattered by the charming floral arrangement displayed in a mercury glass vessel. 
The neutrality of the marble vanity works well with the duck egg blue tones of the wallpaper, providing contrast as well as crispness.  And of course the white touches in the lampshades and towels provide a bit of light relief. 
What do you think of this Cole & Son Orchid wallpaper – bravely botanical or boldly brash? Does it make the room and break the mould or is it not to your taste?  Do tell!
