I’ve been thinking lately of all the opportunities this modern world of interior design has given us and how bold one can be when it comes to decorating. I’ll be straight, I’m not one of those people – I like to mix old and new, modern and vintage, colorful and neutral. So it got me thinking, would I be able to shift to completely new beliefs design-wise? Case in point, I’ve always believed that tiles are the perfect choice for a bathroom – they’re functional and easy to keep clean, the variety of designs is impressive too, can’t ask for more. And what do I see lately? Wallpaper in the bathroom! Floor to ceiling, combined with wood panels – everyone is doing it now. I have to admit, it looks amazingly pretty, but how functional that is?
Happy Monday to all! How was your weekend? It finally starts to feel like spring here and I’m super excited about welcoming a warmer, sunny weather! But if you’re still feeling like winter isn’t leaving anytime soon – I have the perfect therapy for you. The artist I’m going to introduce you to now was born in Colombia, currently leaving in Barcelona – Catalina Estrada mixes passionate latino vibes with modern European styles creating stunning patterns that are cheery, eye-catchy and very ‘caliente’ :)! I’m particularly drown to her wallpaper collection, but do check the other items (floral print on umbrellas for gray days? I’m in!):
As I mentioned in one my previous posts I’m obsessed with wallpapers lately. The more vintage, the better. Hence my excitement to stumble upon Pip Studio Amsterdam who have a great collection of wallpapers that are colorful, floral, with a slight vintage look (or so I felt when looking at them). Pip Studio is a Dutch company offering more than wallpapers, they have bedding, bathroom goodies, bags, stationery. It all looks delicious and I mean it! And about wallpapers: every single design would perfectly fit into a bedroom, bathroom or cozy office nook, so yes, if you decide to buy it, it will be a huge score – it’ll look good no matter the room you decide to use it in.
Please note, this is not a sponsored post! Everything said above is my opinion.
Ok, not really, it was a sort of an intro :). I’m so in love with the well-known zebra wallpaper, aren’t you? It’s so very cool, whimsical, but traditional all at the same time. The best it’s that it can fit any room, but truth to be told I’ve seen it mostly in bathrooms and I’m not sure why. I would gladly use it in a living room or even a kid’s room – what do you think?
Kate Spade used it in her bathroom, Miles Redd decorated with it, so I guess it’s worth giving it a try. Would you?
Have you ever wondered what would be like to go bold regarding wallpapers in your home? And I mean like real bold: pattern madness, hypnotizing mixes, perhaps exaggerated amount of it? I doubt I’d be able to be so brave as of having a room which makes it hard for your eyes to stay opened (nor would I want to, if we’re at it), but I do admire people who have the guts to apply wallpapers on all four walls plus the ceiling (crazy, right?). Or people who are obsessed with stripes and so there are many stripes around their homes.
Would you or would you not go bold with your wallpaper choice?
I’d like to introduce you now to a company based in UK that last year launched its own wallpaper collection and I’m digging pretty much everything they have there – Turner Pocock Cazalet! I was contacted by them as they kindly offered me to take a look at their line and well, I was pleasantly surprised to see such names as Tennis, Cricket (sports section) as well as Zebra, Ostrich, Ibis – I mean who wouldn’t love a stylish zebra wallpaper, right?
