Bold Wednesdays: daring design

wallpaper design


Today we will take a look at some bold aspect of design. Wallpaper is totally in right now and you can make some pretty bold statements with wallpaper! The first two images are from house beautiful and are great examples of this. I love the light blue damask wall paper and especially how it is mimicked in the chair! The tan stripes in the bedroom make ceilings feel taller creating the illusion of more space! If you aren't familiar with Michelle Adams new magazine Lonny you should definitely check it out. It's a virtual magazine you can view on their website and its jam packed with amazing interior design eye candy! The third image above is of her apartment and it was featured in last months issue. She has the cutest wall paper in her living room and dining room of ostrages! In the most recent issue the home of their editorial assistant Ellie Somerville is featured and I love it! She rents an apartment in NY and I'm always so amazed at what people do with their NY apartments. She totally transformed a normal so so apartment into a unique haven full of character! I might do a post fully on her space! The last image above is of wallpaper she applied using painters tape and double sided tape so she is able to remove it without loosing her deposit and also save it to use again! Brilliant!
