Wallpaper Can Be Cool, I Promise

When I hear the word wallpaper I’m immediately drawn to a mental image of the 1970s. Something similar to, say, this? But, in reality, modern wallpaper is actually pretty cool. I’ve seen it used a bunch on HGTV so my opinion has really turned around. There’s even a hilarious episode of Property Brothers where one woman is determined to use the world’s busiest wallpaper (at whatever cost) much to the chagrin of both Jonathan and her husband.



Holy Interiors, Batman.

I love interiors and I love architecture. I love that Dwell magazine exists and I can stare at interesting concepts and layouts of other people’s homes. I dream of what my house would look like if I could design it from the bottom up. Would it have tons of windows? Would they be energy-efficient windows? Herringbone floors? Clean lines consisting of wood, black and white? #typical

I, like everyone else, watch a lot of HGTV and what I’ve come to realize is every design concept from any of those shows are the same. White subway tile…lamenent and tons of modern furniture that looks passed around from house to house due to thorough staging. I may not be able to design my current space to be exactly as I want it, but what I do know is when I do get to design a space it will include none of those things.
