Fireworks….

Lately I’ve been a bit obsessed with black and white and this pattern:

 



The obsession started with this LONNY picture:

It made another appearance in a black/pink color combo in the latest House Beautiful designed by Krista Ewart:

Using the print in bathroom seems to be very popular. Betsy Burnham recently used the print in fabric for her son’s bathroom.

Here it appears in an old image from O magazine:

Lastly it recently appeared in LONNY again:

I don’t think I could ever tire of the black and white polka dot look. Such a classic, but the firework pattern gives it a unique spin.

 

The wallpaper and fabric is available via Hinson & Co.

 

I searched and searched for a look for less option, but came up empty handed on the wallpaper front. Seems like an easy enough do it yourself if you want to get busy with some paint.

 



* I can swear one of you lovely readers did this to your bathroom on a larger scale, but I can’t remember who. Been searching for 2 hrs now and can’t find it.

 




While there isn’t a perfect look a like in fabrics this comes pretty close with a similar vibe:

What do you think about fireworks?

I hadn't seen this print before. I like it, such a great alternative to the polka dot pattern.

I have been loving this paper for a while and I want to use it in my bathroom. It's so amazing. I stared at the HB picture forever.

I did this in paint to my bathroom on a much larger scale...I just recently painted over it as it look a little like a skinned dalmation (according to the hubby.) I still have pics up on my blog though, if you follow the link from the redone bathroom. ( =

Like I said...I was on the fence for a while...but, decided in the end to move on. Now it only lives in pictures.
