I have a thing for wallpaper. Big, BIG. If I wasn’t renting, I might even cover every inch of my walls in it (this also includes winning the lottery to finance said wall-coverings). Other options until I find myself in a more permanent living sitch? Framing large pieces for hanging. Covering the insides of bookshelves. Sitting in my bed and pining over the day I can swathe my walls in this gorgeous stuff designed by Anna Spiro for Porter’s Paints.
Brisbane-based interior designer Anna Spiro and author of the blog Absolutely Beautiful Things has a great eye for mixing colors and patterns in her spaces, with some definite kookiness thrown in here and there. Her collection with Porter’s Paints offers three patterns, each in a variety of colors. I love their fun and youthful, yet still sophisticated look, and am dying to see any of these in a bedroom or bathroom – or maybe even lining the back of a built-in in a family room (I’m picturing the graphic of the rosey posey trellis in blue, lining crisp, white bookshelves, coupled with deep, blue walls).
What are your thoughts on wallpaper? It can be polarizing. I’ve heard many a tale about how it’s a PITA to take down. Even still, I can’t shake my infatuation. Wallpaper can be a great addition to the dimension in pattern and texture within a space – and there are just so many beautiful options out there!
