Fine Little Day Wallpaper

Ahoy and shiver me timbers! The idea of having sketchy ships on the wall really puts the wind in my sail. Is this wallpaper, designed by Fine Little Day, not divine?

I really like Elisabeth’s vision when she styled this shot above, it’s interesting to see how SHE imagines it in a room, what sort of space it would fit in…

You can order it here if you’d like. Arrr!

Graham & Brown: New Wallpaper!

Graham & Brown sent over some of their exciting new collections which launched at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) in New York last month. Graham & Brown unveiled new designs from renowned designers Kelly Hoppen (UK) and Amy Butler (US). Kelly Hoppen is a world renowned designer who has pioneered a simple, yet opulent style  — her blend of Eastern & Western influence is quick striking. Then there is Amy Butler who is known for her midwest modern style with spirit and color. She combines fresh prints that really look great as papers on the wall as you can see below. Yum!

You can view more of Kelly’s wallcoverings here and you may see the full range from Amy Butler here.

Out of the patterns shown above, which do you like the best and where can you see it in your home? I like Lacework (reminds me of doilies and you know I have a think for those!), Momento, Passion Lily and Temple Tulips. They have different colorways of each of the patterns shown above so be sure to check out the website to view them all. I would also like to have several of these papers to line drawers, cabinets or to use to create a patchwork design on the wall or door – so pretty!

Turner Pocock Wallpaper

Turner Pocock is an interior design firm in London that also happens to have a sophisticated and slightly whimsical collection of wallcoverings divided into two themes – sporting goods with papers that have a cricket and a tennis (perfect timing!) theme, and an animal line collection with several furry friends from polar bears to zebras. My favorite is the Ostrich paper shown below in pink. Love!

Turner Pocock Wallpaper

Priced at £70.50 RRP, you can purchase some of these fun prints for your home from the Turner Pocock website if you’d like. Here is a sampling to whet your appetite.

These papers are inspired by the illustrative work of aritst Catherine Cazalet who recently joined forces with Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock, the founders of the firm. Thank you Sally for these images and for introducing me to Turner Pocock!

Buttons + Birdhouses For Your Walls

Hello friends! How are you today? I’ve been very busy but I’m so glad to be here with you now to share a few goodies and talk a little. So! How’s everything? And can you get over that Pottery Barn contest I’m running — sheesh, right? I nearly died when all those entries came in, over 1,200 in less than a day. I had no clue that I had so many PB fans reading this site but it’s great to know. Alright are you ready to look at something pretty? Good. I shared these two wallpaper patterns with you before but I have new photos now (close ups, yay!) so I can share them again as these are much better… I imagine the buttons paper in my future craft room on one wall… behind my desk… Dreamy, right? Here have a look and see what you think. These two patterns are from Studio Ditte in the Netherlands and are being offered by The Collection in Paris who just so happens to have an English online shop AND they ship globally. Oh yeah, baby.

Birdhouse is sold on a 6 meter roll for 150 euros or 3 meters for 80 euros. Button comes on a 6 meter roll for 135 euros or 3 meters for 75 euros. It’s definitely not “budget” but this is likely the kind of paper you’d cherish for many years so the investment may be worth it for you. Aw, these soooo sweet.
