i have a similar situation in a victorian home we just purchased last year. my husband is dying to paint it all white but our compromise was to paint the walls first and see if we could minimize the honey oak of the trim. we painted the walls and are thrilled, not only with the colors but that i don't have to waste weeks if not years of my life refinishing every nook and cranny of this old house. take a sample of your trim with you when you pick out paint and just try it before painting the trim.

I haven't worked with these tiles but I have worked with Victorian reproduction embossed wallpaper, which is the same idea. It was easy to paint other than it takes more time than say a flat wall and it looked great. We did have some start to peel from the wall after several years but it was easily repaired.

my dog was recently hit by a car while my husband and i were on vacation in mexico. we had a friend housesitting for us at the time and have heard multiple stories about how the accident happened. i will not have a friend sit for us ever again. use a company with a good background who is insured!! if you still want a friend to housesit consider that something may happen during your trip that will ruin your friendship.

As a conservation framer I have to comment that it is a VERY bad idea to hang any artwork in the bathroom. The humidity in a bathroom will accumulate under the glass and destroy works on paper, with canvas pieces the moisture gets onto the canvas and breaks down the fibers and can also cause mold.

If you like art in the bathroom try ceramic or metal wall pieces or only things that you have no interest in keeping for very long.
