Ever think about running away and joining the circus?
I first saw the image of Cole and Son, Geometric II, Circus on the walls of the cutest little powder room at the 2015 Denver Showcase House. Inspiring! Let me try to describe it. Geometric, colorful (nearly every color in the rainbow), bold, large-scale. Take note, I said ‘powder room.’ Generally the smallest room in the house. But wait, I also said bold and large-scale. How could this be? This is where “a picture is worth a thousand words.”
Nothing left to chance, this powder room is bold, striking and well planned. The vanity is upholstered with nailhead trim repeating the geometric of the wallpaper, the sconces are ebonized shofar horns topped with white glass globes, there is a swan at the sink. The details are many and well thought out. The result? Definitely not a circus!
A striking large-scale wallpaper panel of overlapping multi-coloured harlequin shapes Circus panels can be repeated around a room for an immersive, kaleidoscope of colour or used singularly as a feature.
When doing research for this blog post I came across more than a handful of images where this uniquely designed paper became the background for many a room; used boldly or fleetingly, Circus can bring life where none existed before. Somewhat like when the circus comes to town.
