{wallpaper week: fougere wallpaper by romo}

Wallpaper Week has taken us to the Netherlands, United States, and today, the United Kingdom with the Fougere Collection.

Just like the Thibaut and Eijffinger books, Romo showcases a prominent array of geometric patterns, variations on the trellis design, colorful large-scale florals, and the use of heavy metals. The vivid colors in the Fougere collection are inspired from the Royal Botanical gardens of Europe; interesting to see the strong presence of the “grape” and darker neutrals in the European lines.

{custom window treatments by Hirshfield’s}

As the employees at Hirshfield’s can attest, there’s nothing more rewarding than seeing a room transform from the “before” to the “after.” Whether that means simply applying a fresh coat of paint to the walls, adding a new rug to anchor a room or, in this case, adding custom window treatments to complete the look of a space.

Hirshfield’s customer, Sharon, worked with Dawn in the Hirshfield’s Shop at Home department to create these beautiful custom, Accordia Fold window treatments.

Dawn was very helpful in going over all the options with me, and then in deciding the details of the draperies. It took awhile for me to find the right fabric, and she was very patient and helpful along the way.

"Before"

Sharon said the reason she was shopping for new window treatments was because of a larger renovation project they were doing on their house – replacing all of the windows and doors. The new windows would be a different size, so the wood shutters you see in the photo above would no longer work.

{wallpaper week: club by eijffinger}

“You have to see the book in person, it’s nothing like anything we have had before.” Hirshfield’s Design Studio

 From Gothic to glam, the mix of patterns in the CLUB collection lends to both residential or commercial spaces. The purple hologram, mirrored bubbles, and reflective foils would work well in a restaurant, bar, lobby, or club. Other patterns are sophisticated in color and design giving your home a stunning contemporary feel. Read the rest of this entry »

{wallpaper week: jubilee wallcovering by thibaut}

Ingrid wallpaper & Cayman fabric

Guadeloupe wallpaper

…the Jubilee Collection by Thibaut is chic gathering of patterns and colors sure to inspire.  Painted in pastoral hues, worldly motifs are translated upon sleek, tactile grounds in a great array of textures, shapes and styles.

Jubilee Collection is Thibaut’s newest wallcovering (and fabric book) hot off the press…so hot, it is not due into our stores until next week.

The color palette offers a wide range from neutrals to refreshing brights. You’ll find classics like the ikat, trellis, and an updated antique crewel pattern. Throw a monkey into the mix and you’ll have a chinoiserie wallpaper gracing your bathroom walls. Read the rest of this entry »

{basic black}

As I was stumbling through StumbleUpon.com the other day, I came across a blog post that caught my eye – Paint it BLACK by LiveLikeYou.com. Not only were the pictures stunning, but the question posed by the author got me thinking – “I wondered why we wear this beautiful non color for mourning.  Black is beautiful, black is elegant, black is classy, black is subdued, black is striking, black is fashionable, black is sophisticated, black is severe…but is black sad?”

After looking at these photos I could describe black as dramatic, daring and haunting, but I don’t think I would classify it as sad. What do you think?

I’m hoping you’ll see a room setting which inspires you to get excited about wallpaper. Whether you are a wallpaper newbie or always had wallpaper in your home, Hirshfield’s staff will help you find the perfect paper for your home and your personality. Read the rest of this entry »
