Wall Splash

I am starting to get that end of summer itch to re-arrange my room and paint the walls. If you know me, you'll know that my walls have been a million different colors over the years and I have somehow maintained the current color for a few years now. Well, I am ready for a makeover!
There are so many options for wall treatments these days. It is no longer a matter of just picking a color but a choice of thousands of colors, textures and patterns. I know that some of the treatments I love at the moment are just too bold for my space but they are fun to imagine having one day.

My favorites:

Lovin' the contrast here. How great are the arches and what looks to be
low-lying seating in the bay window? To see more on this house

I know, I know, I know. Wallpaper was a thing of the 80's and early 90's and we have all
worked so hard to get rid of it. BUT! I tell you, I love wallcoverings, especially, this one.
It's so soft, so soothing and so buttery. It looks great paired with that bed/bedding too.


We all recognize Marimekko as the signature Crate & Barrel prints that can be spotted hanging around the store. Guess what? They now have wall coverings! These three pictured above, are just a hint of the many selections they have here.

Marimekko also has their own line of wall clings.
This world map is spectacular and SO easy to do yourself.
