Spring is Definitely In!

This entry is traditional meets contemporary – at it’s very best! Timothy played on the classic aspects of the room and jazzed it up with pops of mint green and fuchsia. The Chinoiserie inspired mural emphasizes the height of the room, while at the same time tying it all together. Insanely pretty! Happy Easter my Friends! Xox Linda

Look for Less: Koi Wallpaper

August 20, 2011 in Asian (Chinoiserie), Bathroom, Bright, Brown, Look for Less, Natural, Orange, Powder Room, Wallpaper / Tiles / Murals

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?

THE Chic Home Office

Raise your hand if you haven’t seen this home office before. I’m guessing there aren’t a lot of hands in the air. Then you probably also know that this is Designer Mary McDonald‘s private home office. The feature wall is hand painted by Artist Jefferson Miles, and the classic black and white fashion photos include framed tear-outs from magazines.

Get the look with this gorgeous chinoiserie wallpaper by Sarah Hardaker. As the name implies, this wallpaper has a grand pattern, I’d love to see this one on a wall. The best thing about it is that you can order the wallpaper with any color you’d like, so as to match your wall color, for no extra cost! I never knew that was possible anywhere.
