Recently we visited the beautiful Miette Confiserie in Hayes Valley, which is as much of a treat for a design lover as it is for a sweet tooth! The wallpaper and paint that adorn the candy shop walls are just perfectly paired, and the same is true of Miette's Marina store...
Picking out wallpaper can be a fun challenge; it's important to choose a pattern you won't grow tired of over time, and then there's the matter of choosing the paint for the rest of the room and its trim. We're always impressed when we spot a a wallpaper/paint combo that's just spot-on.
The pale green paint with the candy-colored flowery wallpaper is a perfect choice, especially for a sweet shop. The color choices are whimsical and sweet without being overly precious. In case you're wondering about the wallpaper itself, reader karinab identified it in a previous post as being part of Osborne and Little's Tamara line.
We love this wallpaper and paint coupling from Miette's Marina bakery as well. Appropriately, it's a bit more sophisticated than the candy store, but not stuffy or formal. The deep, rich green balances out the wallpaper's girlyness. Check out YumSugar's post on the Marina location for more photos.
