Have you noticed how many butterflies you see now in design?

Well they are fluttering in fashion too.

Happy Easter!

Designers Who Use Wallpaper

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

This is no April Fool’s joke ;), we were pleasantly surprised to see the February issue of House Beautiful feature many interior designers who use wallpaper. We thought we’d mention them here as we really appreciate their work.

Philip Gorrivan uses wallpaper fearlessly to create bold, breathtaking rooms that are completely transformed by the wallcovering.

Celerie Kemble uses a wallcovering similar to our Splatter pattern on the ceiling in this interior design project.

We applaud the unusual use on the ceiling.

We’ve had the pleasure of working with Celerie Kemble Interiors when they were considering using our Faux Tortoiseshell for another project.

You can also see a previous post referencing her prediction for flowers in timeless design, which has seemed to come back around — as described in last week’s post.

Meg Braff says this about wallpaper,”Wallpaper is a great solution to lots of challenges…It’s one of the most useful tools we designers have in our bag of tricks, It can bring warmth and detail to an otherwise drab room and transform a cavernous space into an intimate retreat. It’s an extra decorative layer. And you don’t need to paper and entire room or limit yourself to just walls. Put it on the ceiling or behind the shelves of a bookcase for an unexpected moment.” And we would even add, use it on furniture.

Here are some pictorial examples of her uses for wallpaper. She also has a traditional wallpaper line based on vintage patterns.

But we saved her best quote for last, “The possibilities with wallpapers are endless. Use your imagination and have fun with them!” We couldn’t agree more!!

Her soft teal grasscloth wallpaper reminds us of our Raw Silk.

This interior designer list is certainly by no means absolute as there are many designers using wallpaper right now, which has really come back in style, especially with hassle-free, peel-and-stick versions as Casart because of convenience and there is no fear or commitment to use.  As we have in the past, we’ll continue to add to the list and mention many other designers who use wallcovering.

In the meantime, we recently saw this article, Top 5 deposit-friendly decorating tips for renters on Right Move blog. Using removable wallpaper was #1 !

Look What’s Popping Up Everywhere

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

Spring is nearly here and we have to get through a bit of rainy season before flowers start to bloom. However, you can see poppies and other botanical art popping up all over the place. At least we still don’t have this type of dichotomy — snow falling while tropical dresses grace shop windows.

Soon enough we’ll have real flowers but in the meantime, we predict you’ll be seeing a lot of them a lot sooner everywhere else.

Look at this beautiful poppy rug as art work by Grand in Road.

We have had a tendency to reference Grand in Road lately because we are liking their new-found look and philosophy.

We agree that the outdoors as well as indoors should be looked at differently — with art and personality in mind to create ambiance and interest.

We like the bold statement artwork they are featuring, with its quirky and colorful nature. We also like the handpainted look to this printed giclée, Bessie Cow below.

A 36″ square print is on sale right now for $153, discounted from $189.

We have similar work with a ‘handpainted’ quality by artist Ann Alger, who’s created a Bloom series of botanical artwork with photographic digital manipulation. Although ours is not on sale at present, it comes in a variety designs and sizes. The closest size to the one above is 36 x 24 for as low as $41, as seen with the Peony in Pink.

White and Pink Peonies has a more muted color and there are many others to view on our website.

We have other flowers that never fade or need watering and make an artistic and spring-like, decorative statement.

If you’re as crazy for a floral pattern as we are, go overall flowers, with Flower Power.

Our other prediction where you’ll see flowers popping up is in fashion. We love this flowy, floral dress.

You’ll see many tropical, floral dresses in the market. Must be coming from the long winter we’ve had and wishing spring was already here. Only 2 days to make it official!
