WIN! New Farrow & Ball Wallpaper + Giveaway!

I’m such a fan of Farrow & Ball and I’ve really enjoyed working with them on campaigns over the years. As most of you know, I turn away work frequently because I don’t work with just any interiors brand unless I really love and support what they do. Farrow & Ball is just a great company and they produce beautiful wallpaper and paint. Exquisite really. Half of the rooms in my home have F&B paints. I love their chalky, matte finish and gorgeous hues and that I’m not the only one in love… But that everyone who sees my home raves over the green-blue, very pale paint color in the nursery (Cabbage White) and my gorgeous gray in my dining room (Dimpse) that looks amazing against bright white trim work. Gray and blue-green paint colors are really hard to get right, as any decorator knows, so when you find a paint company that creates such perfect hues you become very brand loyal. Here are some of their patterns from previous collections…

Their wallpaper looks stunning and works perfectly with their paints. I’ve not yet used their wallpapers, but dream of someday papering a wall in my home with one – for instance the wall behind my sofa in the living room. The wall is so big, so boring, so meh. I love the large-scale patterns in the new F&B 2015 collection. All of their papers are a more modern version of the vintage papers you see in old French and English homes – oh how much I love those! Here are some views of their new collection below, hot off the press!

Giveaway: Studio Haikje €100 Gift Cards

Today is our final day of giveaways on decor8 for #12daysofgiveaways. I can’t believe it! And we are going out with a bang because I have not one, not two, but THREE giveaways for you today. First up, I have some wall and window stickers from Dutch brand Studio Haikje and love them so when Haikje asked to be part of my giveaways on decor8 I said yes right away! I have Aidan’s name on his door and on his bookcase, a little bunny, all made by Haikje. I also have some of the white window films. Do you remember when we toured the home of the owner and stylist, Haikje Verberk, here on decor8?
