Before & After: The Cutest Bunny Wallpaper We?ve Ever Seen

I always get excited to see a home renovation project that embraces patterned tile and wallpaper. I’m usually a little nervous to use bold wallpaper and patterned tile in large spaces, but I am always game to use them when they can turn a smaller space into something really special.
Today’s home makeover projects use both of these tools for stunning finished results. Both of these bathrooms come from Adam and Laura in West Chester, PA. They recently renovated their 1830s stone barn home with the goal of opening everything up and exposing as much of the original barn as possible.
We wanted to honor and cherish the history of the barn while bringing it into the 21st century.
Over the course of a year, the family worked with an architect and construction firm to renovate and celebrate the original historical features of the home as they were uncovered.
“We had the pitfalls one would expect,” Laura explains. “Like having to reinforce areas of the home with steel beams wrapped in period wood. But we discovered amazing history, like beautiful preserved signatures of the original masons carved into the whitewash dated 1830.”

The downstairs bathroom got new floors, a new pedestal sink and our favorite bunny wallpaper. “The wallpaper is from the artist Hunt Slonem, Adam notes. “We love his work and love the bunnies! We felt it was a fun touch.” In addition, pine ceilings were added to mimic the original ceilings uncovered throughout the house.

The main upstairs bathroom used to be covered in dark stone tile. It now has a new life with a bold black and white tile pattern and wooden beams that echo the home’s original barn structure. “We added the pine ceilings in this bath to tie the whole first story together,” Adam shares. “When we demo’d we discovered the original ceilings had been preserved under plaster for about 40 years. This beautiful discovery enabled us to continue to preserve as much of the original barn as possible while bringing the barn into the 20th century.”
