I’m loving this bold powder room. There’s nothing like a bold wallpaper in a tiny room. It doesn’t really make sense, but it obviously works wonders. This baby I believe is Graham & Brown’s Illusion wallpaper, but I couldn’t find this black and silver colorway.
GRAHAM & BROWN
Black and gold however, I had no trouble finding. Looks brown to me, but the specifications reads black, so it’s probably just a bad color representation. Speaking of black and gold fretwork wallpaper, here’s another beauty:

The shiny metallic surface takes this wallpaper to another level. Too much of a good thing, or just right? You decide ;-)

Well hello there! I just have to share this breathtaking wallpaper I came across a few days ago. It’s called Wisteria and is designed by Londoner Jocelyn Warner. What do you think? Ahh-mazing or what??!

Bet you all remember this silver and indigo room designed by Windsor Smith. I can’t get this room out of my mind, and I know a lot of you love this room too. The Silver and Blue Wisteria wallpaper strikes me as the perfect base for achieving a similar look. This is where you wish you had more walls, right? I know I do. The Wisteria wallpaper comes in 5 colorways, you can see them all at Jocelyn Warner’s Website ;-) Have a lovely evening! xox Linda

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?

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.
