Ideas About Traditional Wallpaper Pattern in a Contemporary Home?

Good Questions

Q: I bought this Graham and Brown wallpaper (Stella in purple and gold) before moving into my new house, for the purpose of using it in a small bathroom after I renovated. I'm starting to plan the bathroom renovation and am having trouble thinking of ways to mix this traditional pattern in a way that won't clash with the style of the areas around it.

Just outside the bathroom are stairs and a bookcase. The living room is to the left of the photo. The bathroom will get a new sink/vanity, mirror, lighting, and toilet, so it's pretty much a blank slate. It doesn't have a shower but it does have a big window.

I'm hoping Apartment Therapy readers can suggest ways of incorporating the wallpaper in a way that doesn't seem out of place.
