I have a confession to make…

…. about wallpaper. If you read my post from last week where I was tearing my hair out over which wallpaper to choose…. then I apologise. The thing is, when you’re in “a relationship”, and live with someone, apparently it’s good etiquette to ask their opinion when buying things or making decisions for your home. Pffft. So, I did. I asked my beloved weeks ago about his thoughts on a particular wallpaper. One that I really really liked and wanted him to like too. But he wasn’t a fan. I showed him another picture of the same wallpaper a few days later. He still didn’t like it. And one more time the following week. Nah, blah, meh…. baaaaah. After my “third time lucky” technique, I concluded that he did NOT like this wallpaper and did NOT want this wallpaper. So the full on wallpaper search proceeded and I ended up with the heavenly seven you guys saw last week. And your help was amazing. Thank you. Anyway, here they are. (Were). Samples started arriving and I was …

Wallpaper Overdose

You guys gotta help me. I’ve been in a serious wallpaper haze for the past week. I’m totally binged out on pattern, design, graphics, colour, texture…. My OH is about two more times away of being asked “What do you think of this one?” from punching me in the eye. Just to catch you up, in my last post, I gave you a lil’ tour of Making Spaces, HQ. The feedback was pretty awesome. And unexpected. Made me super smiley, so thank you very much indeed. This is the offending wall. It needs help. And i’ll tell you for why…. Our Heal’s Club sofa is quite possibly the most comfortable sofa ever. And huge. It can fit two people lying down with ease. But it’s also a big soft, velvety chocolate blob that does not photograph well. This is how the room looked last summer, in a shoot for HomeStyle Magazine. This is the equivalent of my sofa’s school photo. Standing straight, on its best behaviour, with nicely combed hair. Lots has changed in the room since then. …

Wallpaper and Muriels*

I don’t have any wallpaper in my home. And barely suggest to clients to choose it either. Most people I work with have a) children or b) a limited budget so paint is safer and cheaper. BUT… sometimes I see something and I want it immediately. And I want everyone else to have it too. Look. Ceylan Collection – “Numbers” The lovely people at Papermoon sent me some pics of the new Coordonne range hitting their online store this month and there are some corkers. I’ve hit hard and fast with my favourite. “Numbers” is a huge mural with huge numbers. Simple. Clean. But a statement alright. I’m currently looking at my black office wall that I only painted about three weeks ago and fantasising about it being there. Shall I? Random Papers Collection –  “Cut and Paste – Hula Hoop” Who wouldn’t want this super happy lady hula hooping on their wall? I do! Very vintage chic and immediately makes me want to go to Toys R Us to buy a Hula Hoop to join in. …
