Wallpaper wishes ...

Every once in a while, I rediscover the beauty of wallpaper.  Sure, I've peeled and steamed more than my fair share of the stuff off my walls and have sworn "never again." So you'd think I wouldn't even consider decorating with it again, but I've fallen in love once more.

The current object of my desire is Escortal hand printed wallpaper from Pintura Studio (shown above and below). Photographed by Rachel Watson and Alexandra Strata for Lonny Magazine.

I love the bold pattern, and the earthy green is enticing, too. But, I actually think it's the rustic, artisan nature of the print process - a bit Wabi Sabi - that perfect imperfection that I love.

Thibaut Design also gets it oh-so-right with its fabulous swirls in melon pink. This entire room is a masterful expression of cheerful ambience.


I'm even smitten with some of the new designs that evoke a decidedly masculine tone. The gold antler motif with cranberry background (above left) from Barnaby Gates would work beautifully in a man's study or library, while a gold floral 'Petal Pusher' pattern (above right) from Hygge & West is charming on charcoal gray.


Until I've convinced myself that my new-found fondness for wallpaper will be a lasting desire, I may just add some interest to smaller surfaces like drawers and cabinets.

Maybe a pantry makeover is a good place to add some glam color or just a hint of pattern.
