Elevate Your Space with Thibaut Wallpaper: From Walls to the 5th Wall (Ceiling)

Wallpapers have the power to transform a space, adding personality and charm that paint alone cannot achieve. Thibaut is a beacon of creativity and quality among the many wallpaper options. They offer an array of designs for accent walls and encourage you to think beyond the conventional by considering the “5th wall” – the ceiling. In this blog, I’ll explore using Thibaut wallpaper on accent walls and ceilings to create breathtaking interiors.


  1. Making a Statement with Accent Walls: Accent walls are an excellent way to inject character into a room without overwhelming the entire space. Thibaut’s wallpaper collection boasts an assortment of patterns, colors, and textures that cater to various design aesthetics. Whether aiming for a contemporary look with geometric patterns or a classic ambiance with floral motifs, Thibaut offers an extensive range to suit your preferences.
  1. Choosing the Perfect Wallpaper:When selecting a Thibaut wallpaper for your accent wall, consider the existing color palette, furniture, and lighting in the room. The wallpaper should harmonize with these elements while standing out as a focal point. A subtle balance can be struck by opting for a wallpaper that complements the room’s theme rather than overpowering it.
  1. Adding Dimension and Depth:Thibaut’s wallpapers are more than just visual elements; they add depth and dimension to your space. Textured wallpapers, such as those featuring embossed patterns or faux finishes, bring a tactile quality that can elevate the overall feel of a room. Whether a cozy bedroom or a vibrant living area, textured wallpapers create a multisensory experience that plain paint can’t replicate.

4. Beyond Walls: Embracing the 5th Ceiling: While accent walls are popular for showcasing Thibaut’s wallpapers, the brand encourages homeowners to explore the often overlooked 5th wall: the ceiling. Adorning your ceiling with a captivating wallpaper design introduces an unexpected element of surprise and elegance to the room. Whether you choose a subtle pattern or an intricate design, the ceiling becomes a canvas for artistic expression.

  1. Tips for Ceiling Wallpaper Application:Applying wallpaper to the ceiling requires a slightly different approach than wall application. Here are some tips to ensure a smooth and successful process:
  • Preparation is Key: Ensure the ceiling is prepped correctly, clean, and smooth before applying the wallpaper. Any imperfections can show through the paper.
  • Use the Right Adhesive: Thibaut recommends adhesives suitable for their wallpapers. Make sure to follow these guidelines for the best results.
  • Consider Lighting: Take into account the room’s lighting. A well-lit room will accentuate the beauty of the ceiling wallpaper.

Conclusion: Elevate Your Space with Thibaut Wallpaper: Thibaut’s wallpapers offer design possibilities, from accent walls that make a statement to ceilings that inspire awe. By incorporating Thibaut’s designs into your interior decor, you add style and infuse your space with luxury. Whether you’re drawn to modern, traditional, or eclectic aesthetics, Thibaut has a wallpaper that can turn your design dreams into reality. So, why limit yourself to four walls when you can elevate your space by embracing the 5th ceiling?

A Culinary Journey Unveiled

A Culinary Journey Unveiled: My Middleby Cooking School Adventure

Greetings, fellow food enthusiasts and cherished readers!

I’m thrilled to whisk you away on an unforgettable culinary escapade through my recent experience at the Middleby Cooking School.  Prepare to tantalize your taste buds, ignite your creativity, and gain an exclusive peek into the artistry that goes into crafting the world’s most exquisite kitchen appliances.

Embarking on a Journey of Flavor and Innovation

Picture this: Two days immersed in the heart of culinary innovation, where design meets functionality and flavor takes center stage.  Middleby Residential, located in vibrant Dallas, opened its doors to a select few, myself included, for an exclusive Viking appliance workshop.  As we dove deep into the world of kitchen artistry, the magic began to unfold.

A Symphony of Premier Brands: Middleby Residential

Middleby Residential, a collective of premier international consumer brands, is dedicated to shaping the kitchens of our dreams.  From the time-honored elegance of the La Cornue French-inspired range to the versatile AGA range, the sizzle of Lynx outdoor grills, and the sophistication of U-Line and Marvel refrigeration, Middleby’s collection is a testament to luxury and precision.

But that’s not all – let’s talk about the EVO flat-top grill.  It’s not just an appliance; it’s an experience.  Imagine a gathering where family and friends come together, each contributing their culinary flair to a feast prepared before their eyes.  With options for custom outdoor kitchens, portable tabletop use, and even a three-wheeled cart version, the EVO grill is designed to bring people closer to the joy of cooking.

Crafting Connections and Enriching Knowledge

Beyond the appliances, the Middleby Cooking School experience facilitated a meeting of minds and tastes as a passionate homeowner and kitchen designer.   I had the honor of connecting with talented kitchen designers from all corners of the country.  We explored the showroom together, sharing insights and ideas and forging connections beyond the cooking school’s doors.  The promise of reuniting at upcoming Kitchen and Bath shows is a prospect that has me eagerly counting down the days.

Join Me in Elevating the Culinary Experience

As I reflect on the sights, aromas, and friendships that blossomed at the Middleby Cooking School, I can’t help but be inspired to share this journey with all of you.  Whether you’re a seasoned cook or just beginning to explore the world of gastronomy, Middleby’s dedication to merging design and function will undoubtedly captivate you.

Not only did I learn all about the appliances, but I was also able to experience cooking a Tomahawk Rib-Eye steak on the Series Seven Viking Range using the flat skillet first and finishing the steak in the oven.  With the Chef’s help, I cooked the steak to perfection, It was delicious, and the presentation was even better.  I also watched the Chef prepare some meals using the EVO flat griddle.  The first was Korean BBQ and the traditional breakfast sandwich.  All was amazing to watch, but the food was fabulous.  I still have not lost that weight!

From Shabby To Chic


Prepare to be inspired by the remarkable journey of a homeowner who turned their primary bathroom from a source of frustration into a space of utmost fulfillment.  Amidst the challenging backdrop of the Covid pandemic, these resilient homeowners purchased a house burdened with a practically unworkable bathroom.  They sought my guidance to find a solution while staying within budget.

AFTER-Transforming frustration into fulfillment while working with a tight budget.

BEFORE!  As you can see this outdated and very low vanity was in dire need of an update.

BEFORE -This shower was almost a non-functional shower with a dangerous tub for getting in and out.

AFTER:  The homeowner can enjoy luxurious shower experiences with our low-threshold shower featuring bench seating.  Designed for both seated and standing showering, it includes a convenient handheld shower for flexible use and a refreshing rainhead shower.

With the expertise of my skilled craftsmen, we set out to make their dreams a reality.  The first step was clear: a complete removal and demolition, leaving only the closet intact to contain costs.  Despite the limitations, we revitalized the space without relocating any plumbing.

Together, we carefully curated a design encompassing a prefabricated cabinet featuring two elegant sinks complemented by cultured marble countertops.  A shower base with walls adorned with a bench replaced the outdated hazardous bathtub.  Underneath the obsolete carpet, a surprise awaited—an impeccable base for installing luxurious vinyl plank flooring.

Bid farewell to the old and usher in the new—the vanity and shower received a magnificent upgrade with gleaming Delta faucets, replacing their outdated counterparts.  Recessed LED lighting was tastefully integrated into the ceiling to elevate the ambiance, accompanied by sophisticated light fixtures gracing the newly installed medicine cabinets.  The worn-out wallpaper was swiftly removed, making way for serene turquoise blue walls painted in Sherwin Williams’ SW 6218 Tradewind, infusing a sense of tranquility.

The transformation unfolded before their eyes, bestowing the homeowners with a spa-like sanctuary that surpassed their wildest expectations.  Not just a mere bathroom but a space designed to accommodate the graceful aging of its occupants.

Are you in need of a bathroom update?  Afraid a designer will waste your money?

Updating your bathroom doesn’t have to break the bank.  

Working with a designer can provide with valuable insights, cost-effective solutions and a strategic approach to design.  Buy leveraging my expertise, you can make informed decisions, avoid costly mistakes and ultimately achieve the best return on your investment.
