I’ve had a lot of questions about this koi wallpaper in the lovely powder room featured in this post. The wallpaper is obviously hand painted, which you can tell when there is no pattern repeat. I believe it’s from de Gournay (please correct me if I’m wrong), which means most of us can’t afford it.
Luckily I came across a more affordable version on Wallpaper Direct. What do you think? Is this a good alternative, or does the pattern repeat ruin the charm?

After writing this post I was told in the comments that the owner of this home, Victoria Webster had replaced the yellow wallpaper in her gorgeous living room. I was so curious to see it, and thanks to a wonderful reader with a scanner, we get to see the new walls!

My love affair with orange continues, and this bedroom does nothing to help the situation. Orange and blue has always been one of my (many) favorite color combinations, and I love how Jonathan used chocolate brown on the walls. For such a strong palette which includes orange and brown, I don’t think this bedroom looks right out of the 70′s. At least not as much as one would expect from Jonathan Adler ;)

One of my absolute favorite things to do is to go treasure hunting at flea markets and thrifts stores. I recently came across this fantastic glass revolver and it screamed my name, so of course I had to take this baby home. Isn’t it fabulous? (and almost invisible)
I believe this was originally used as a bottle for some kind of alcohol. If you know more about this, please enlighten me =)
I also got this amazing geode for a mere $1.00, can you believe it??!
Yesterday I started craving orange (the color, not the fruit), so I did that quick painting. I added the golden nailhead trim to give it some oomph, what do you think? Silly? This of course lead to a minor office nook updating mission. Promise to share some pictures when it’s all done, although I despise how my bare wooden walls come out in pictures (and in real life for that matter). Hopefully we will move soon, so it stays.
