Decorating With Green Wallpaper

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

Wallpaper has really come back in style with force in the past few years, and while it may be a tad more work intensive to put up, it truly is a great alternative to paint. There are more colors, styles and designs to choose from than ever, and the abundance can be quite overwhelming. Where […]

The Grand Tour From Osborne And Little

Wednesday, October 19th, 2011

I have completely fallen in love with the Grand Tour Osborne and Little wallpaper collection. They were released this past spring, but the colors and patterns work year round. The company says the collection was inspired by “the artistic and architectural treasures of Italy, especially those of Venice, as discovered by aristocratic young Englishmen on […]

Home Decorating Ideas – Looking Back, Part 2

Wednesday, October 5th, 2011

As I mentioned in the first post in this series (Decoration Inspiration Part 1), I love magazines and always save them (don’t ask me how many magazine subscriptions I currently have – it’s embarrassing!). Every now and then, I take a bunch of issues from the same month a certain number of years ago and […]

Book Wallpaper Designs

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Books are always in style, whether they’re for reading or just being used for wall decor purposes, and especially right now. They are everywhere this fall, and they certainly do add a large dose of coziness to a room. We have more books than we know what to do with in our house (mainly thanks […]

New Wallpaper From Osborne & Little

Thursday, September 1st, 2011

Osborne & Little just announced their new fall collection of wallpapers: the Komodo, which consists of a variety of animal prints (some with metallic finishes, which is huge this fall), and the Strand, with stripes in different hues and boldness. Animal prints are not my thing personally, but if I had to pick a favorite […]

As much as I dislike saying goodbye to summer, fall is pretty exciting too. The freshness in the air, the pretty colors, the new releases of everything from boots to wall decor. Danish company Ferm Living just announced their new fall collection – it is fabulous and very much in keeping with the forecasted fall […]

Mr. Perswall has just released a new collection of cool wallpaper designs called “Communication” which, according to the company, “pays tribute to the art of storytelling”.

Love Wallpaper

Sunday, January 30th, 2011

With Valentine’s Day around the corner, today’s post focuses on love. While I personally would not cover an entire room in some of these patterns, they are cute, fun and certainly innovative. And as always, there is the option of putting them up on a focal wall, or just frame a piece and use as […]

Orange Wallpaper

Monday, January 17th, 2011

Some people can’t stand orange; others can’t get enough of it. It is a strong color that can be overwhelming in large quantities, but super chic and fun in smaller doses and as an accent. The name “orange” was used for the fruit in the 1300s already, but as a description of color, it supposedly first […]

Retro Wallpaper – 1920s To 1980s

Wednesday, December 29th, 2010

Today’s post is all about retro wallpaper. But what is retro? What era can be considered retro? What’s the difference between retro and vintage? The Oxford English dictionary defines retro as “characterized by imitation or revival of a style from the (relatively recent) past; (more generally) backward-looking, nostalgic, esp. affectedly so“. As for an era, […]

Christmas Wallpaper

Sunday, November 21st, 2010

The holidays are upon us once again (why does this always take you by surprise? Every year, it seems like the time between August and December just disappears) and I’ve been out hunting for unusual Christmas wall decor. While most of us enjoy decorating our homes for the festivities, putting up wallpaper just for one […]

5 Unusual Wallpaper Designs

Sunday, November 7th, 2010

Wallpaper is making a huge comeback and no wonder – it’s an easy way to dress up a room, a focal wall, or even just a wall panel. And the leftovers can be used as framed art, wall decor collages, wrapping paper, greeting cards – any creative paper craft you can think of. In any […]

Green Wallpaper

Monday, October 25th, 2010

These days, when you see the word “green” in combination with anything, you immediately think environmentally friendly and eco-conscious. I’m sure I’ll write a post about those kinds of wallpapers too eventually, but this one is all about the color green. Green is a color with both positive and negative connotations (green thumb, greenback, green […]

Blue Wallpaper

Sunday, August 29th, 2010

Blue is one of those timeless colors that never really go out of style. Sure, certain shades lose a bit of their popularity every now and then, but you never see an entire fashion or decorating season completely void of blue. Blue has long been considered a color that “feels quiet” and helps to cool […]

Decorating With Black Wallpaper

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

Black walls sounds like something that could look clubby at best and dire and depressing at worst, but choosing the right shade of black, and putting it in a room that can handle it, can result in a very modern, sophisticated look. Is black a color? Yes and no. Since it absorbs all light and […]

Chandeliers On The Wall

Friday, July 23rd, 2010
Bathroom Chandelier

I have always loved chandeliers. To me, they bring up nostalgic images of European castle ballrooms filled with people in gorgeous outfits dancing the night away, extravagant theater lobbies, the Moscow subway, old churches with enormous (and sometimes very unusual) chandeliers hovering above the visitors, or here in the US, grandiose estates owned by the […]

10 Gorgeous Nature Wallpaper Designs

Saturday, July 17th, 2010

Wallpaper, invented by the Chinese around 2,000 years ago and popular for centuries all over the world, sadly fell out of favor in the 80s and 90s, but is finally making a big comeback. My earliest memory of wallpaper is these murky brown grasscloth ones my parents had all over our house in the 70s […]

There is always new, exciting design coming from Scandinavia, ranging from ultra-modern, super-sparse, understated and totally white interiors to fun, colorful, crazy and wacky furniture and accessories. Some may teeter on the edge of tacky, but most of the time, they are items with style and flair. And so many are timeless – just look […]
