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!

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.
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.

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!
