Anthropologie is Selling Wallpaper

I remember when my parents moved into our old house on Edgewater Drive and every room was wallpapered in a different pink and green pattern. The first thing my mother did was chisel every last piece of paper off the wall, re-stucco and paint. She complained about the process for years to follow and shook her head at even the mention of wallpaper. Well Mom, it's coming back. In a big way.

And it looks like my favorite store in the world is offering their own selection of pretty papers. Wonder if I'll cave to the newest decor trend and ignore the sound of my mother's voice reverberating between my ears.

  1. I've long drooled over the luscious Arts & Crafts William Morris print wallpapers available (some favorites here: http://www.charlesrupertdesigns.com/index.php/collections/show/pink_rose

    and here: http://www.fitzdecarts.com/wallpape.htm

    I guess I'll have to wait until I can buy a house!

  2. OMG! Love, love the links. I like how the fitzdecarts.com papers have an antique look to them. Really gorgeous. I am especially smitten with the Trellis design and all the florals.

    What I like about the William Morris prints is the antique aesthetic but modern colors. Like the sage green in the Wild Tulip paper.

    Sadly, wallpapering is a luxury for homeowners - not renters. Peacock has done some pretty awesome stuff at her home using target wallpaper. Right now - I'm sticking with the white look!
