When my grandmother was an interior designer, she snagged old discarded billboard ads and would wallpaper rooms with them. I’ve always thought was such a fun idea and when I saw this image on Apartment Therapy, it reminded me of her story and I had to read on to see how they accomplished the look.
The Better Wallpaper Company will apparently turn any high-quality photo into wallpaper. While I think it would be a little creepy to have a current family portrait on a wall that big, I could definitely see an old black and white photo being pretty like in this example.
Can you think of anything you’d want blown up that big in your house? I certainly wouldn’t want a picture of me!

I just finished clicking my way through Lonny issue #3, and I for one am freaking jealous of that Michelle Adams. She has the coolest job ever. Maybe coolest life ever. Michelle, if you need any lowly assistants up in Boston, you just go ahead and give me a call!
I love that they feature so many apartments, because us apartment dwellers need shout outs sometimes. Afterall, we put up with sharing our washing machines with strangers, neighbors playing loud music at 6am, and the ever-pleasant misplacement of our mail in another persons mailbox (it’s never a credit card offer or a student loan bill, it’s always something awesome like your US Weekly).
My one point of contention with this issue though: how is that all of these apartment dwellers have wallpapered rooms?! I can’t even get my landlord to repaint our bathroom white — who are their super relaxed, wallpaper friendly landlords? I would really like to know. But in the meantime, I will drool at their awesome wallpapered homes.
Stenciling has such bad connotations of early 90′s floral borders and sponging techniques. But I’m enthralled by this new book that came out, Stencil 101 Décor and ready to give stencils another chance.
If anything is cheap and temporary, it’s paint. I love the look of wallpaper, but have you ever tried to remove wallpaper? It’s hell on earth. These patterns are an awesome alternative to get the same effect.
I’m loving the look of this use of stencil over the fireplace from Isabella and Max Rooms:
Vivienne Westwood just launched a line of wallpaper, and I’m liking what I see…
Some of the prints are a little too wild though, ruffled tartan plaid? No thanks.
Someday I’ll be a homeowner and can wallpaper to my heart’s delight! A girl can dream…
Last week when I posted on the photos of Kelly Wearstler’s entryway in Vogue, I was so drawn in by the splashy pink wallpaper. Lovely Katie, from KatieMade, let me know that it was produced by Porter Teleo, and I’m so glad she did because I found their website and saw so many other great designs!
I love love love this green and blue bird print, and bookmarked it for my hypothetical future dream home.
And this? Oh man do I have an unhealthy addiction to animal prints.
I have zig-zags on the mind. After posting on Friday about the zig-zag table from Oomph, it reminded me of Lindsey Coral Harper‘s apartment photos, I think it’s an identical print. I adore the zig-zag wallpaper, anyone know where it’s from? My love for zebra print and my compulsion for orderly, symmetrical patterns have joined forces and I want some of it!
I read about Mod Green Pod in Domino‘s green issue, and they’ve popped up in several other magazines since. The makers of rich, colorful, upholstery-weight organic cotton and gorgeous wallpaper not only have an amazing eye for design, but their website boasts a fun “room creator” where you can drag and drop their wallpaper and fabrics onto a coloring-book style room lay out. I suggest you check it out when you have a few minutes to spare, since it’s addictive!
It’s official. I have a design-crush on Benita Larsson’s home. Every time she posts a new DIY project on her blog I swoon! And I also must admit; she served as some inspiration when I was mustering up some courage to start my own blog.
In her most recent post she covered closet doors with gorgeous green wallpaper. I feel like I’ve been seeing a lot of wallpaper in different places lately, using wallpaper to cover just one wall, or maybe the inside of a cabinet… it’s a thrifty way to incorporate the design of wallpaper without having to buy several expensive rolls. I’d love to cover the inside of my armoire doors in this rich green print.
