A Diverse Bouquet of Floral Design

Wednesday, May 6th, 2015

It finally feels like spring! The flower buds are popping and so are flowers in design.

To celebrate the season, we’re getting ready to have a  Spring Flowers Sale!

You’re the first to get this news, so be sure to check our website in the next few days.

Veranda Spring March-April 2015 issue

Flowers in design may not be something new but there are so many diverse types and ways to use; especially now, one can’t help but notice, flowers are featured in almost every home decorating magazine, not to mention at the White House state dinner for the Prime Minister of Japan. Just look at that gorgeous floral backdrop!

Clinton Smith, the Editor in Chief for Veranda loves flowers. His editorial in the spring issue reflects on an age gone by when there was an element of taking time to smell the flowers. However with this age in technology, beautiful flower images can be shared in an instant and he remarks how he’d now like to personalize the postings rather than with just a quick hashtag. Hopefully this will be a trend (and not just for flowers) to help appreciate and sincerely feel in the moment that these beautiful flowers bring.

We love when House Beautiful posts their “paint palette” for gorgeous photos. The spring tulip was their tribute in their April issue.

Loving this color, we have a faux Raw Silk wallcovering that can compare.

The joy of floral bouquet can last all year round, especially if made with paper. These gorgeous floral arrangements by artist and author of Exquisite Book of Paper Flowers, Levia Cetti, were also featured in House Beautiful’s spring issue.

Wait, were we ahead of the petal push when we introduced our Flower Power multi on a black background wallcovering in 2011?

It also comes in 15 other colorways!

And, certainly the current flowers from the Ann Alger Collection Bloom Series are worth noting.

Beautiful painterly images in small to large sizes (48″ x 72″ wide) are worth picking.

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.

Click here to see previous posts about Philip Gorrivan’s work.

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 !
