Barnhouse En Suite | Gather Wallpaper

Room Makeovers

Our en suite bathroom finally feels complete!! I had been wanting to do something to the walls since finishing this Barnhouse renovation but never quite found a concept to work with the pattern on the floors. The solution? Design my own print! This delicate print from my collection with Chasing Paper is called Gather.


When I thrift around Milwaukee I’m often surprised by where I find inspiration for other projects. Last year I found several beautiful botanical outlines in an old book. I thought they were so sweet so I started cutting them out and arranging them. Initially, I was not sure that the outlines were impactful enough but once I started playing around with the backdrop I knew I was on to something.

Putting these delicate outlines on top of rich colors like a deep plum, sage green, and earthy tones like mushroom and taupe really made them sing. After seeing the color printed, I knew all four needed to be in the collection! When naming this print I imagined picking each flower and gathering them up to create a centerpiece at a table that my friends and family would all gather at.

Subtle + Stunning

Since the flowers are monochromatic, it almost feels like I am painting the walls with in a beautiful hue. The sweet flowers are just a bonus! I love that this print doesn’t compete with the pattern on the floor. The juxtaposition between the repeating pattern of the subway tile and the more organic one is quite nice. Also, for those wondering the towel hooks are from Target, linked here! And these linen towel are a favorite of mine.

What are you waiting for?

The full collection with Chasing Paper launches on April 28th, but if you can’t wait to try Gather in your space you can purchase a sample kit that comes with all 4 colorways: Mushroom, Sage, Taupe and Plum. I went with Taupe for our en suite because I thought the space really needed some warmth to make it feel elevated and spa-like. This color can really change throughout the day from an earthy taupe to mauve, so make sure to look at the sample throughout the day, and in different light!
