Wallpaper

Last week, thanks so a crazy cool decorating post by Sara, I came across perhaps the coolest wallpaper site ever: Wallpaper from the 70s.

They have so many patterns that I'm smitten with, but since they're located in Germany, I wanted to look at some samples before ordering a few roles. While I don't know about boldly patterned wallpaper all over the house, I do know that I want to have one of the walls in my studio covered in a pretty paper.

First of all, these sample arrived fast...like, ridiculously fast. I ordered last Wednesday, and they were here (from Germany) today. Way to go for excellent customer service!




I'm really happy that I ordered samples, because some of the prints are a lot larger than I would have expected. While I like all of them, I'm leaning toward one of these two:



The gray floral was a favorite to begin with, and these are the two that go best with my newly decided upon color scheme.

But who knows, I'll probably end up changing my mind a dozen times before settling! I am starting to like that other black and white floral the more that I look at it...!

I love the green! I can't wait to see the wallpaper in your new home. I too am in love with Wallpaper from the 70's, and posted about 15 pics from the site last week:

I love wallpaper from the 70's, I got my wallpaper from there too. The only drawback is that you have to buy the glue separately and brush it on but it's so pretty it's totally worth it.

I'm pattern crazy too! I just love looking at them and wishing I could have them around my house.

Thank you so much for your comments on my travel posts. It made me feel very humbled and happy. I'm back now and had fun catching up with your posts.

I love the green. So vibrant. So many patterns to choose! (I'd end up changing them every year!)
