before and after: joslyn’s bar

joslyn at simply lovely sent over this fantastic before & after. her wallpaper makeover project is proof that a little wallpaper can go a long way. joslyn picked up a roll of cole and son‘s popular “woods” pattern and redid the hallway/bar area in her home- which makes for a great splash of detail in between rooms. we’re about to wallpaper a wall in our home (pictures coming soon!) so i’m always excited to what people do with wallpaper in small spaces. thanks for sharing, joslyn!

[ps- one more thing i’m excited about: trade a someone should definitely take advantage of the handmade wedding invitations trade that’s up!]

i love that wallpaper! (i think i saw a similar design that had blackbirds in the branches) from the glimpse i see of her dining area i would LOVE to see more ala sneak peek, i like the green accent wall, the zebra rug and the table & chairs, they all compliment eachother – give us more joslyn!!!

I’ve been on the hunt for that wallpaper! I actually used it in my wedding inspiration board and have completely forgotten where I found it. I’d love the source!

OOooh, yay! Have been waiting to see this transformation and it did not disappoint, Miss Joslyn! And I’m with Elizabeth….more, more, more!


I like the wall paper, but the green wall, even better. What is the color?!!

LOVE the green wall with the zebra rug! It’s amazing how much the the change brightened the room.


I think this looks so good, it makes the space. I am with Elizabeth, if this is any indication of the rest of the house I would love to see more. Love the bold green paint choice, I wish I had the guts to pick a color like that! The paper totally elevates that green!!!


You have beautiful house (love looking at your flickr photos) and this just made it that much more interesting. A very dramatic punch to the room.


this looks amazing! i’m in love not only with the paper, but with the dr chairs… where are those from??


Thanks for the info on the green paint. What a gorgeous choice for that room!


I have been gathering sources for RUSTIC wallpaper. This is perfect!! Love it…


I’m crazy about that wallpaper! I just love this before and after section. What fun one can have with old things and a little creativity! Thanks for the inspiration. :)
