Wallpaper Love: The Vase

I've adored this wallpaper from Clarence House, inspired by a David Hicks design, every since first seeing it in a small powder bathroom several years ago. Being a true fan, I've used it in my own home and also had a story written about it for the latest issue of House of Fifty. A classic pattern that is both traditional and hip at the same time, it's currently available in 16 various colorways. But, my favorites are the yellow and taupe.

In a butler's pantry.
Yes, a pantry, I had to read the text on this space twice to make sure I'd caught that properly!

In a living room paired with pretty blues.

In a bathroom, next to dark trim and patterned tile a dynamic mix is created.

And in a kitchen.
The idea behind lining the walls of this kitchen with wallpaper was to give the space its own distinct character,
despite being open to the family room and dining room through arched openings. It works!

Is there a wallpaper you've been wanting to use in your home?

My mother would love the yellow - her favorite color. I really like the bathroom, especially mixed with the tile, very very nice.

Hey, it looks great! On matters of style, swim with the current, on matters of principle, stand like a rock.
Most people will never be great in #Style, BUT YOU ARE ;-).

Let me share something with you! Did you know that you can print favorite photos of your work and hang them on the wall as canvas prints? Bring your ideas into real life, with an option to print even large canvas prints.
