We couldn’t be more excited to share with you the wallpapered sleeping loft at Tree House! The journey to get here has felt long, hasn’t it? We were so sure we were going to use a paper – any paper! – from the Kate Goldberg collection, but after bringing our samples to the space, we couldn’t commit. They were beautiful (and we’d still like to use her patterns somewhere, someday), but didn’t nail our vision.
The problem? We didn’t know what our vision was.
We wanted it to feel fresh and fun – this is a kids’ loft, after all – but also calming, imaginative and with a dash of whimsy. Easy, right? (Ha!) It wasn’t until I stumbled across the light blue colorway in Sandberg Raphael that everything started to click. Fun? Click. Dreamy and whimsical? Click. Still traditional-leaning but not stuffy and also carefree and colorful but still kind of neutral? Click, click, click!
As novice installers, we DIY-ed this accent wall using the ‘Paste the Wall’ method, which was surprisingly easy! We completed the project from start to finish on a single day during the course of Lucy’s two naps (so maybe in 3 hours?). We’ve tried different methods in the past, and paste the wall has been, by far, the most intuitive. We documented the entire process, and we’re sharing the step-by-step (plus a video!) on Homes.com today!
To say that we’re in love with how the loft has shaped up would be an understatement. The wallpaper makes this 12′ wide room feel much larger, the ceilings taller and the dimension and depth is incredible. It draws your eye out the window to the trees below, a natural extension of this Tree House loft.
The tutorial, more photos and a how-to video(!) is right here on Homes.com! We promise you, you can do it yourself. Go forth, and wallpaper!
