Design DECISIONS...... Wallpaper

Ok, So I want something to spice up the living area of Brian and my house. I HATE, HATE painted accent walls, so I want to do a wall of fun wallpaper instead. Don't ask me why a wallpaper accent wall is different, because I don't know. It JUST IS. When I saw an article in Lonny Magazine about the owner "mounting" her wallpaper with a combo of painter's tape and double-sided tape to make it more semi-permanent (perfect for my ever-changing tastes!) it made me get even more on board.

My first thought is trellis wallpaper. Even though I love chinoiserie wallpaper, I think it might be too much in such a small house. I love Kelly Wearstler's collection of Fabrics and Wallpaper for the F. Schumacher Company! Yes Please! Kelly Wearstler is pretty fab to begin with (Design Obsesh on her to come later) and as an aspiring business-woman, I totally look up to her.

I love these rooms with her Imperial Trellis Design.

This is a more cost-effective option from Ballard Designs.

This Citrine version of Kelly Wearstler's Imperial Trellis Design for F. Schumacher is my FAVE! I think this might be the winner for my "accent wall".

While I was "browsing" on the Schumacher website... I came across the wallpaper below. I think this would be PRECIOUS for a babies room. OK Readers, calm yourselves. I am not near ready for that. And, I know, for the record, how things work.

First I need this.

Then This.

And then, I can have this.

Once I do have a little babychild though, I would love a room with the Schumacher Balloons Wallpaper. I think it would go perfectly with the colors grey, mustard and navy. I would paint the walls a dove grey and do the ceiling and interior of built ins in the wallpaper. I would do a vintage crib painted navy. and do grey, cream, and navy bedding.

I would have a bumper like this made, but the base fabric would be this ikat from Calico Corners with a stripe of mustard silk dupioni.

I love this room that Jenna Lyon's did for her son, Beckett's room.

These are sweet also.
