Wallpaper Wednesday

I recently came across Juju Papers and instantly fell in love with their beautiful wallpaper designs.  This small wallpaper studio is based out of Portland, Oregon and is doing so many good things.  They are an environmentally friendly company and each roll is handprinted and made to order, how cool is that?!

Feast your eyes on these beauties…

Wallpaper Wednesday

I’m starting a new weekly series that will feature designers doing awesome things with wallpaper!  Wallpaper these days is not your grandmother’s wallpaper she used to have in her 1970’s house.  There are so many fun prints out there.  When the time comes,  I will for sure have a very difficult time picking out just one pattern for myself.

These life-like, gorgeous, romantic flower patterns are the work of Ellie Cashman, an expat living in the Netherlands.  You can read more about her life as an expat in her blog and how she got started designing pretty wallpaper.  Her designs are the epitome of romance and elegance all rolled up into one.  I picture them being used in a rustic farmhouse in the countryside somewhere in France, adding a contrast feminine touch to the simple look of a farmhouse.




Spring Lookbook

Anthropologie debuted their Spring Lookbook and it does not disappoint.  The brand is killing it in the home decor area.  They have perfected that effortless, Parisian chic, mixing of old and new look that is not as easy to pull off as they make it seem.  A lot of their items are a bit pricey, especially their furniture pieces, but I think we can all take a look, get inspired and put a similar look together with vintage items and items from other more affordable retailers.  See below for some serious eye candy.


The pretty rose pattern wallpaper in gold is by the very talented and blogger veteran Joy from Oh Joy!  I’ve seen it in so many projects, it’s definitely a cult favorite and is becoming a timeless classic design that goes with everything.



Blog Crushin

Lately, I can’t get enough of Emily Henderson’s blog.  I might be obsessed.  The way she mixes textiles, color, and texture work so well in all of the spaces she designs.  It can be said her trademark colors are navy blue and tan/bronze, which is what drew me towards her designs in the first place.

The sectional we have is a caramel/tan color.  For a long time, I struggled with choosing a color palette that would work well with the sofa because buying a new one is not an option right now.  After stalking Emily’s blog for hours (and hours..) I have decided to incorporate navy blue into the decor of the house.  I’m so excited I have even bought pretty navy blue throw pillows to replace the crappy tone on tone pillows that came with the sofa when we purchased it 3 years ago.  Hurrah for decisions!

That wallpaper is my absolute favorite.

Pink in the Bedroom

I came across Crystal Gentilello’s bedroom makeover a couple months ago, which was also featured on a house tour on Apartment Therapy a while back (girl’s got skill for decorating and styling).  Nevertheless, I saved it on one of many inspiration folders on my computer and so now I’m sharing it with you all.

It’s pretty and perfectly girly.  Not sure if my husband will approve of this look for our bedroom, but that’s not what this post is about.

We actually purchased a bed a few weeks ago (still waiting for it to be delivered).  I desperately tried to convince my husband we get a curved tufted headboard similar to the one pictured below, he said “I think it’s too girly.”  So we went with an upholstered square tufted headboard instead.  Hey, at least I got an upholstered headboard.  That’s a win.

Cool Designer

One of the best things about wandering the internet aimlessly is discovering talented designers and being inspired by their amazing work.  I came across this small boutique design firm called Jute.  Below are a few images I thought I’d share with you.


This is me showing you my love for collage art work walls.


Who said white has to be boring?


Love, love, love the use of neutral tones and beautiful textures.





One day, I too shall wallpaper a powder room.

Gold Lining

Hands down, I am a lover of white ceramic dishes, but when I saw these beauties I think I may have been converted.  How can you say no to these adorable tea cup sets and dotted plates?  Um, yeah. I thought so.  I think they would look awesome displayed on kitchen wall shelves such as the ones that are currently trending in the blogosphere.  Or, if you prefer, you can show off these beauties by placing them in glass front kitchen cabinets.
