Take a look at the photos below….
Can you tell what I am loving today?
The silhouettes of Verellen upholstery….
It was a whirlwind weekend as I’ve been in Dallas since Thursday visiting preschools and house-hunting. What an exhausting process but thankfully we made some progress in narrowing down our search to a few neighborhoods. And, we have a great realtor so I now feel confident we’ll find a house we love in a great neighborhood….and am thankful we have the time to wait for the perfect place for us! (And, Mom and Amy if you are reading….THANKS again to you both and Dad for watching Maddie for 4 days!!!!!! I know she is a handful!)
Anyways, I came home to stacks of mail and in it was the sample of the wallpaper I want to use in our baby’s nursery. I sampled three colorways, but I am pretty sure this one will be the go….
The color in the image above is way off on my monitor. The background reads an olive color here…..but the background on the actual paper is MUCH lighter. In fact, it is almost a dark cream/very light beige. I love it!
This paper is by Julia Rothman for Hygge & West. It was designed in Brooklyn, NY and screen printed in Chicago, IL. And, it is printed on high quality paper manufactured in the US.
I’ve got to thank the blog world, specifically Urban Grace, for the introducing me to this paper. Designer Laurie Rhoney used this paper in her daughter’s nursery and it was featured on the Urban Grace blog. This picture has been in my inspiration files ever since.
What do you think? I just think it is so sweet used on a nursery ceiling. This paper is my jumping off point, and I will share the various elements as I make progress. My goal is to have everything ready to go so the room can be put together as soon as we make the big move!
Today I am doing a guest post over at Odi et Amo. She has been running a great serious entitled “Shop Like a Design Blogger.” To date, I’ve really enjoyed all of the entries in the series and have learned a ton of new tips and sources from fellow design bloggers.
Naturally, I was very flattered when Averill invited me to participate in her series. Since finding Odi et Amo, it has quickly became one of my favorite blogs. I am not an attorney like Averill, but worked in a similar field, doing investor relations and transactional work for a large private equity firm in DC before starting my family and switching gears. So, perhaps I identify with the whole corporate vs. creative pull that Averill often alludes to. Regardless, I know I love her style and quickly pop over when my blogroll indicates a new post is up on her site.
So, if you have time, hop on over to view my guest post and and if you have not been to her blog previously, stay a while and explore. You will not be disappointed.
