Reader Q: Wallpaper Help

August 10, 2007

A reader wrote in asking about the wallpaper shown in this image below, an entry to the Fabulous Stationery contest sent in by Allison Nance. I usually reply to quick questions via email versus turning them into a post, but since I can’t locate her email to send her an update, here’s an update for her – I think I found the pattern! It’s over at Romo Fabrics and it’s called Kimura. It looks identical to me. The slight color difference could either be the lighting in the photo, or perhaps this pattern is available in additional colors.

    I believe her image is from Blueprint magazine, though I get so many glossies I may be mixed up!

    It’s definitely from the last Blueprint issue, so you can probably track down the source from them.

    It is from Blueprint – here is a link – there must be a reference in the back of the mag – I don’t have it here at work.

    Everybody is right! I checked my Blueprint mag and it is what Holly said “Kimura” by Roma. Hope that helps.

    Hi Holly, Is there a search function on your blog? This post reminded me that I think you have said you like the color yellow right now. I wanted to search for “yellow” posts, because it is my new obsession and I’m looking for inspiration. Thanks for any help you can give me!

    This email just arrived from Allison, the lady who submitted the beautiful entry for our contest with the wallpaper in question.

    Hi Holly,

    just wanted to write and say that the image I used is the “Kimura” wallpaper by Romo. I got this image from this months Blueprint magazine, page 98. It is $74 a roll from Wallnut Wallpaper, 323-932-9166

    This is my favorite color combo right now! I just added a ton of yellow/grey items to my blog ~ wish I had seen this one too! Love the wallpaper. Thanks!

    Oh…thank you for posting this! I just love this pattern, I’ve been looking for something similar to one in a Kate Spade ad I saw recently…and this is very close (the yellow variation). Thanks again for the info Holly!
