Three of the eleven coordinating fabrics found in the Enchantment Collection.

ENCHANTMENT COLLECTION…BY THIBAUT

Thibaut is one of our favorite wallpaper lines and we’re always excited when we receive a new Thibaut book. Their new collection, Enchantment, explodes with color and offers classic patterns designed with that unique Thibaut look.

Thibaut has this to say about the Enchantment Collection:

Welcome a new interpretation of chinoiserie in the Enchantment Collection. With an eastern influence, this fresh collection of coordinating wallpaper, embroidery, print and woven fabrics pays homage to traditional European artistic styles. Modern design elements mimic fashionable chinoiserie compositions like scenics, fretwork and delicate florals.

Kew wallpaper from RomoWith new pieces arriving weekly at Hirshfield’s Design Resource Showroom, the staff thought it was the perfect time to freshen up the showroom with new paint and wallpaper. The mini makeover starts with the feature wall on the first floor which is now home to this lovely digitally printed magnolia pattern. It will be interesting to see how digital printing is used with other interior design products.

On the second floor, the stenciled wall is now painted over with this dark and mysterious teal from Hirshfield’s Paints. The “moody” colors have been popping up with more and more frequency in magazines and decorating blogs. Are you ready to welcome the moody blues, greens, and even pinks into your home?

{design trends: embellished walls}

2013 is all about dimension and texture. From the runway to your room, embellishment is guaranteed to draw the eyes in. By rethinking the use of flat walls, you can provide dimension and interest. There is no wrong way to pull this trend off, except by not daring to try it.

{friday finds: flerique by eijffinger)

Fleurique321804-321824

I’m excited to show you a new wallpaper book from Eijffinger called Fleurique. I know Eijffinger isn’t for everyone, but it appeals to my sense of style. The strong colors, patterns, and European flair is what I like most about this line.

This book is inspired by brightly colored flowers. Rounding out the book are stripes, overscaled snowflakes, raised patterns with matte and glossy finishes playing together. Never a dull color in the Eijffinger books.

Fleurique surprised me with the elongated triangles shown here in neutrals, which also is available in a lovely pink. And how cool is wallpaper that looks like shiny, iridescent eyes of peacock feathers? It’s a modern looking pattern not found in other wallpaper books; plus, it’s available in some doable neutral colorways. I see patterns from this book crossing the line from residential to commercial applications. Eijffinger has not disappointed me yet.

The wallcovering libraries vary at each Hirshfield’s location. Call in advance if you are looking for a specific book, and ask if the book is checked in. Our stores are seeing a steady increase in customers looking for wallpaper which is very exciting for us wallpaper lovers.

{bits & pieces: thibaut’s faux bois wallpaper}

I planted the seed a couple of weeks ago. In passing, I mentioned to my husband, ” Think about horizontal (painted) wood planking on the headboard wall in our bedroom.” Audible groan, and then, “what are YOU talking about?” In our house, my ideas = husband doing a lot of the work.

That was before I saw this wallpaper in the new Neutral Resource book from Thibaut. The Hirshfield’s Design Studio staff first showed me the paper, and then a couple of the stores mentioned it. Everyone’s in agreement. It’s an excellent faux bois paper and all around great book. That extra layer of texture gives a room more character and added interest. What do you think?

A wide array of natural tones comprise Thibaut’s Neutral Resource wallpaper collection. Designs range from traditional classic patterns to novelty contemporary prints. A variety of metallics paired with colors such as soft fawn, stone, and charcoal enrich the neutral color palette. Specialty papers like cork and raffia enliven the collection with dimension and vitality.

The majority of H’s stores have the Thibaut books, but call first before making a special trip.

Enjoy your week! Spring is almost here.

There are so many rockin’ wallpapers available right now it makes my head spin. Traditional, European, retro, flocked, classic, vinyl, hand blocked, screen printed, transitional; wallpaper is very much in vogue.

The staff at Hirshfield’s Design Studio tell me naturals are trending: grasscloths, linen looking papers, bamboo, or silhouettes of nature, like trees and flowers. Also, for a single wall application (focal wall) geometric patterns and damask motifs are customer favorites. The wonderfully exotic Moroccan influence has been emerging over the past year and is now starting to appear in the wallpaper industry.

 Hirshfield’s carries an extensive wallpaper library in the majority of our stores. We offer wallpapers at all price points and have the most diverse selection of high-end or “to trade only” books in town. Our sales staff are wallpaper savvy and knowledgeable with every aspect of the world of wallpaper.

No other decorating product offers so much color, design and coverage to suit any mood, taste and need. Stop by your neighborhood Hirshfield’s and see for yourself all the exquisite wallcovering options.
