Let's talk Wallpaper!

Although I would have normally done this in stages, (budgets are real), we went full speed ahead with all the wallpapers to get the new house ready for the Society Social spring photoshoot. I went through what feels like every last wallpaper for months on end (let's be serious I've been decorating this house in my head for years ;) and we couldn't be happier with how it all turned out. Even the husband approves!

Luckily we had the best installer (Hey, Jordan's Wallcoverings!) who finished up just days before the photoshoot and the prettiest papers from all time favorites and design heavy hitters Brunschwigs and Fils, Lee Jofa and Thibaut. We mainly used these wallpapers as backdrops and I can't wait to show you the full rooms soon!

Scroll down for our list of favorite wallpaper picks!

p.s. I didn't link any furniture because I wanted this to be about our wonderful wallpaper vendors but you know where to shop it all!! www.shopsocietysocial.com ❤️

Thibaut "Extra Fine Sisal" in Blueberry shot here in our Master Bedroom
It comes in ALL the colors and is absolutely rich in delicious texture. Our bedroom feels like being wrapped up in your favorite blanket! If you're taking notes, Thibaut has one of the best collections of natural wallcoverings from sisal to raffia and in all of the colors you could dream possibly dream of.

Thibaut "Aberdeen" in Blue in our Master Bathroom
I'm smitten with this ditsy, perfectly organic, and perfectly light blue print. Our floors are a marbled tile, our hardware is all brass so this wallpaper adds a much needed layer of warmth and cozy to what could have been a "cold" space. If you're nervous about pattern heavy wallpaper, but want to give it a try, this wallpaper is perfect as the print is so small that from far away it almost fades into one color. 
Brunschwig and Fils "Jardin Fleuri" in Petal shot in the Home Office
Need I say more? I'm a total goner when it comes to any kind of chinoiserie print and in this beautiful soft color, it was love at first sight. We (my husband ;) painted the baseboards and trim in SW Warming Peach for contrast. And to note, if you're in the market, Brunschwigs and Lee Jofa's traditional chintz and chinoiserie patterns are among my favorites.

Oscar de la Renta for Lee Jofa "Sameera" in blue in our Powder Room
This one is a showstopper if there ever was one. It's the perfect balance of global and sophisticated, refined and relaxed. I could live in this powder room. It's not too much larger than our first NYC studio apartment, after all!
Here's another quick pic from the opposite angle. The team and I designed the vanity last year and I'm considering adding it to our line this fall. Would love to know what you think! We still need a mirror and I'm taking votes! For those of y'all who asked the sconce is Kelly Wearstler for Visual Comfort It feels silly, but I love "Sameera" so much that I'm considering using it as a fabric in our master bedroom for a headboard. You can't go wrong if you love it, right?! I'm having trouble deciding which color will go best with our Thibaut Extra Fine Sisal wallpaper. Blue and red?
Or blue and olive green?We've also used Thibaut "Bankun Raffia" in Wheat in our guest room. I love the chunky texture that gives the entire room a cozy, homey feel.
 
And Thibaut "Serengeti" in Aqua in the guest bathroom. This bathroom may actually be referred to as "sick."
That is all for now! We hope to wallpaper Austen's bathroom as well and I've brought in a few Sister Parish options! Thank you guys for being so excited about our forever home journey :) We feel so grateful to be able to do this!

If you have any design questions or comments at all please email contact@shopsocietysocial.com. I can't quite figure out how to respond to comments! XOXO!
