For all of the New England colonial wallpaper and apple borders that I have endured, I still maintain my love of wallpaper. There is just something beautiful about a great allover pattern.
I'm not talking about your mama's vinyl folks, but real handcrafted, high quality wall coverings.
I've looked everywhere for that perfect paper to add some large scale interest to an accent wall.
After looking at all of the traditional books and then scouring the designer sites, I finally found a few papers that I like. Some I even love. However since my taste never seems to suit my budget I had to move plan B.
I was researching how to try to make my own, when I came across Royal Design Studio.
My search is over and I am in LOVE.
Simple, elegant, beautiful. I love monochromatic prints.
With stencils there is no compromising. You get to decide the color.
This Acanthus pattern is elegant and glamorous in a subtle pair of contrasting grays.
It's sassy and spirited done in bubble gum pinks.
But while the gray wall certainly turned my head, seeing it in pink? I am SMITTEN.
The Royal Design site has a great "How To" section and I can't WAIT to try this myself!
I struggled to choose which pattern I wanted and after much debate decided to go for the Hollywood Squares. Working with the geometric fabric on my headboard and the square design of the dresser handles, this pattern hopes to be the perfect compliment.
