This photo in the June 2017 edition of Country Living magazine caught my eye:
“Quilted wallcovering. Create a warm welcome with this unique spin on an accent wall.”
It seems to be from a bathroom or a half bath with a red wooden dresser repurposed as a vanity, plus a red and dark brown wood-frame mirror set against a coordinating red, black and white quilt. By all appearances, the quilt is permanently attached to the wall.
Wow, what a wonderful look. The mirror on top of the pieced multicolor quilt is too busy for my taste, but I really like how striking the wall is and how well the space is pulled together.
A comparable look would be relatively easy to achieve with paint and a stencil, if you don’t want to use a quilt or are worried about the longevity of textiles as a wallcovering.
Note: I wasn’t paid or perked to mention this; just passing along a good thing.
