"Oh, what a feelin'! When we're wallpapering the ceiling..."

Sorry about that.  ;)

I came across this image when searching for gold, removeable wallpaper for a current client of mine.  I love this room so much.

While in this case we're using the wallpaper for the walls on either side of a fireplace, I did recently use grasscloth in the tray ceiling of another client.  Will have to get a picture of that soon!

Cityscape Wall Murals

This image posted by the Chicago Architecture Foundation (the ones who do the best architectural boat tour!) popped up on my Facebook wall today. 

I love it.  They linked to the original article which had other cityscapes and trompe l'oeil murals.  Ahh Paris, je t'adore!

Before doing any research, I thought they were hand painted murals.  More clicking around led me to the company's website (Pixers) & I was surprised to learn that they are stickers...and how easy and affordable they are!

They are custom sized, even better! All you have to do is enter the height and width you want, then position the window over the part of the mural you'd like to have printed.  Easy!

An 8' x 9' mural costs under $300, which really surprised me.  I expected it to be far more expensive!

They have a lot of other designs and images - I highly recommend checking them out :)

I am Dying. DYING over this Wallpaper.

Pups in Cups.  Are you kidding me??

As you may or may not know, I am kind of obsessed with my dog (Hi Derby!).  When I saw this wallpaper from Binny Illustration on design*sponge the other day, I had to take a closer look.  Pups.  In cups!  I particularly love doggy ears & these auricles flapping in the wind make me giddy. 

I could totally live in the bedroom above, but I can guarantee that would never fly (ha) with my husband.  It's entirely possible that this will end up in our house someday, even if it's in the form of our non-existent baby's room.

You can order this paper, and lots of other great designs, from photowall.

Interesting tidbit: I hated HATED dogs when I was little.  So horribly afraid. We got a dog when I was 6 or 7.  Neither my sister nor I would go outside if it was out there.  One day, my mom forced us to go out and play and when she looked out the window a few minutes later to see Amy & I standing on top of the swinging seesaw and double cradle thing on our swing-set. Needless to say, we didn't have a dog for long :/

Amy still hates them; I've embraced the fur face.

Happy Thursday! Is it spring yet?!

Bye Bye Marimekko Wallpaper!

How sad!  I just read on the Always Mod Blog that Marimekko wallpaper has been discontinued!  I guess there is a pretty limited niche market for (sometimes) over-the-top & bright, always bold wallpaper, but I was still surprised to hear this. 

I guess the good news is that it is on sale while supplies last, so I say snap up a roll or two of the iconic Unikko pattern and paper the walls of a small bathroom!  I love large, graphic prints in small spaces.  I also studied the designer, Maija Isola, in college and am particularly drawn to her designs.

Check out more patterns here.  & buy today before it's gone!
