The Wallpaper Difference!

I just love a good before and after shot.
before

after

Its amazing what some wallpaper and some well chosen accessories can do to lift a bathroom. I think it looks fabulous! (Images via House Beautiful)

Agreed! It's funny because I was looking at the before and thinking, hmm this looks good. But then you see the after and POW! Love it (though this is also what makes me realize I need an interior designer as I'm not sure I can always visualize the potential!).

Oh my, you wouldn't guess it was the same bathroom. That is so good.

This is really very simple but has a WOW value for sure. I think sometimes we try to make things too complicated, when less is sometimes better. Blessings

Wow! I can't believe what a difference it makes. If I saw that wallpaper alone I would probably think 'too busy' but it looks fabulous - so fresh.

Fantastic transformation.
Thank you for the inspiration.
I just love wall papered bathrooms.

Now you've really got my thinking. MOTH told me the other day I'll have quite a gap between the wall tiles & the ceiling in the Bathroom From Hell renos. He hates wallpaper (is permanently scarred from his previous wife's abuse of it!), but maybe I need to work on him. Fab post & if MOTH whinges I know who to blame - sorry mate!

This is amazing. Looks like a totally different bathroom.

Wow, it doesn't even look like the same bathroom. It's amazing what wallpaper and accessories can do for a space. Lee :)

Wonderful transformation :-) And really, not very much was changed -- even the faucet is still the same. The wallpaper makes such an incredible impact on the space :-)

That is a stunning transformation. So effective too when half the wall is papered and the lower half is tiled. I see they also removed those cubbies for soap, which is an improvement too. Deborah

I will admit when I first started reading this post I crinkled my nose and thought "ugh, wallpaper" because I tend to hate wallpaper from many experiences trying to remove it.

But you have changed my tune!! That bath is gorgeous!

Thanks for sharing!
