Decorating Elsewhere

A Serpentine Bathroom

I’m fully embracing my witchy goth past today, you guys. Mix that with my present love of pink, and I’ve got a good bathroom design to share for Halloween (but it’s one that I totally want in my house year-round).

It all started with the Serpentine wallpaper — a new design from House of Hackney that’s available for pre-order. This would work well with the Coven Wallpaper that I love too.

A Serpentine Bathroom | Making it Lovely

  1. Tim Lamp Pendant, Rejuvenation
    Tim, as in inspired by Tim Burton. I always feel like this one doesn’t look as impressive online as it does in person. It is huge, handblown, and amazing.

  2. Tripod Mirror, Anthropologie
    Looks like it could come to life at night and walk around.

  3. Tile (Sand Dune), Fireclay Tile
    A quiet counterpoint to the paper with a pinkish tone and lovely crackle finish.

  4. Serpentis Wallpaper (Black), House of Hackney
    There are subtle flower motifs hidden behind the snakes. This is beautiful.

  5. Hudson Valley Royale Polished Nickel LED Sconce, Bellacor
    These come in brass as well, and for my house that’s what I’d pick. I was pushing myself to use nickel instead here though. A classic metal finish to temper the Halloweenish vibe.

  6. Vintage Fixed Mirror (Polished Nickel), Pottery Barn
    The regular size would be plenty big over the sink. (The mirror, sconces, and vanity are roughly in scale with each other above.)

  7. Agneta Shower Curtain, Anthropologie
    Florals that aren’t too twee to go with the snakes.

  8. Maison Single Extra-Wide Vanity (Antiqued Black), Restoration Hardware
    Pretty French details keep it feminine.

  9. PB Organic Bath Towels, Pottery Barn
    Pink. ‘Cause I love it. Ivory or white would be nice, too.

  10. Textured Organic Bath Rug (Soft Rose), Pottery Barn
    Yep, more pink!

Another look at that Serpentine Wallpaper. (OH MY, YES.)

And an alternative choice: Coven Wallpaper. I think everything except that Tim pendant is working here. I’d probably swap it for something a little more branching, like so.

    I desperately want to do a powder room with the coven wallpaper! It would be so spooky in the best way.

    If I ever wanted my husband to move out, that would be the way to do it!! That wallpaper would put him OVER THE EDGE!!! The only thing worse would be spider wallpaper. That, of course, led me to a search and I found this which is GORGEOUS too. But also off limits!
    So fun. Happy Halloween!

    Ah! I knew I recognized that Coven Wallpaper- AD did a tour of Karen Elson’s home, and she has a badass boudoir with that paper! I think she’d be totally down for this entire mood board :)

    Ha, my mom could never come to your house if she knew that you had snakes on your wallpaper!

    I can’t claim a fondness for reptiles, but that’s fab! I love, love, love the coven paper though!!! Killer designs.

    It’s funny, I never thought of myself as having an issue with snakes, but the idea of looking those guys in the eye while naked does give me the creeps a little. Such a gorgeous pattern, but I’d like to admire it fully clothed.
