Wall Paper Love

Wednesday, November 12th, 2014

I can not believe how much I am loving wallpaper again:

I find myself visiting Cole & Son and Graham & Brown often, looking at the beautiful patterns and colors and wondering where could I hang wallpaper in my home:

I went on the Graham & Brown site yesterday and learned that for the first time ever, a wallpaper was chosen as Wallpaper of the Year for 2015, Northern Rose:

“Northern Rose was chosen from our design archive, the beautifully painted fresh design in vibrant pink and explosive blue with lush embellishments was picked as it represents the optimism that is spreading across the country as a whole, whilst retaining a certain British, vintage charm.” The company is based in London.

I absolutely love it! I don’t know if it is the blue and pink colors or pattern, but I really want to use this somewhere. How about a car:

Cute! I think it would look great in a bath or powder room. Happy and colorful! Or an entry would look fabulous, don’t you think?

Have you used wallpaper lately? It is easier to install these days and there are gorgeous colors and patterns to choose from. Important question: Does anyone know if it is easier to remove the new wallpaper today than in the old days? Does anyone remember that job?!

Art In Bloom

This past weekend I enjoyed a walking tour of Jackson, NH to see how individual gardeners put together their floral interpretations of art:

It is held by the Mountain Garden Club and this year marked their 10th anniversary of the walking tour,which is their annual gift to the valley. Art In Bloom is a walking tour of eight sites in Jackson where pieces of art are interpreted through member crafted floral arrangements:

They are all so unique. I loved this simple display:

This above was named ‘Garden Party’. She even painted the picture!

Many different and unique ideas were used as art:

This display had a nice story how this picture was her first art work purchased at nine years old:

A sign I saw on my walk I thought was cute:

This is beautiful:

If you are wondering like I was, why the artist did not use poppies like in the artwork, here was the answer:

Funny!

I was telling everyone that I was glad we did not have to vote for a favorite! Too many that I really liked:

A fairy garden!:

Loved this one! I met the artist and she said that everything here was made from items she found in her yard and garden.

I want one of these birdhouses:

They sell these handmade birdhouses locally. Look at the details:

Totally awesome. The photographer was there and told me he walked by an alleyway in Venice and saw these three women sitting there. He asked permission to take the photo. I love it, it is so interesting to me.

I hope you enjoyed! Do you have a favorite?

Isn’t this artwork beautiful? A perfect way to start a color scheme in a room. Here is the other piece of the set:

I am helping an online client with her bedroom and I thought these prints would be a gorgeous inspiration. We talked about paint colors also and since I have been obsessing over this bedroom photo:

bedroom love!

I suggested she leave her white walls as is and just paint the ceiling in this Ben Moore Porcelain Glaze CSP-550:

Paint Color- Benjamin Moore Porcelain Glaze CSP-550

That would look beautiful don’t you think? I recommended all white bedding with these blue shams and a duvet folded on the end of bed (in water):

And here is our design board:

Just lovely! What do you think of painting the ceiling of the bedroom instead of the walls in the blue?

My client does not mind that I share these pictures with you, but asked that I not give out all of our resources. Thanks for understanding!

Plain, simple, uncomplicated. You all know how much I love a pretty vignette!  How about in the kitchen?

Kitchen countertops should be rather simple to decorate. We already own tons of accessories in our kitchen to use. Plus, the only simple rule to remember is to not over-accessorize. Keep it clean and simple:

Here are a few ideas I hope might give you some design inspiration:

Isn’t that gorgeous above?! A corner of the kitchen.  I love when I find such beautiful pictures to share with you!

Notice how the kitchens are not at all boring using just a few simple items:

I tried to use only photos of kitchens that actually looked lived in (coffeepot on counter, etc.), and not styled for a magazine (although they probably were!). I just want you to notice that the beautiful rooms we love are decorated very simply.
