The first floor Master Bedroom in the Southern Living Tarpon Run Idea House has been getting a lot of attention–and we think deservedly so!  The bedroom and adjacent bath span the width of one end of the house, with doors that lead to a private outdoor deck, sheltered by a porch above and the gulfside dunes beyond.  The wall between the bedroom and bathroom is hardly a wall at all, instead it’s made of floor-to-ceiling windows!  A sleek white bathtub sits just on the bathroom side of the glass wall, with white drapes that allow for privacy when desired.

On the other side of the bathroom, dual vanities are split by a vanity space.  We selected funky shell mirrors from Wisteria to bring an unexpected accent above the sinks (we usually like to use decorative mirrors in lieu of run of the mill plate glass ones in bathrooms).


As great as the bathroom is though, it’s the wall behind the bed that’s been getting the most attention:


To answer everyone’s first question, it’s a stencil, not wallpaper.  We first tried stenciling on a project in Mountain Brook, Alabama last year and completely fell in love with the results.  Wallpaper certainly has it’s place, but over time the seams inevitably start to show and once it’s damaged it’s nearly impossible to repair.  Stenciling holds up just like a painted wall would, but you still get the pattern and color that wall covering brings. 

The fabulous Dwell bedding in this room was the inspiration for the color palette we used and ultimately informed our decision to stencil the wall in the persimmon color (Valspar ‘Crimson Glow’ #2011-5, over Valspar ‘Clean White’ #WV31001).  The stencil itself was designed by our sister company, The G Brand and marks the launch of their new online retail venture, Whitewall & Co.  This design, along with many others, is available via Whitewall’s brand new website (link below).  We were excited to be able to showcase Whitewall & Co. for the first time in the Idea House and judging from the reaction thus far, we think it’s going to be a very successful new venture for The G Brand–spread the word!
