{wallcovering wednesday: discovering thibaut’s trade routes}

If you love traveling to exotic places (or just dreaming about it), Thibaut Design has a book for you. Thibaut’s new Trade Routes collection of coordinating wallpaper, print and embroidered fabrics was inspired by handcrafted and primitive techniques from faraway places.

For example, Goa (below), a stunning pattern named after the beautiful beach town in India that has colorful buildings and palm trees, and at one time had wild cows roaming freely along its beaches.

{bits & pieces: wallpaper as table runners}

Wallpaper table runners? What a brilliant idea. When I saw this tablescape posted by Design By Color Wallpaper I had to see what else was out there. I found a few, but this one is my favorite as I’m a sucker for anything faux bois, especially wallpaper.

Brewster Brings the Bohemian Chic with Kismet Collection

For those of you who survived the 80s decorating palette, it may be difficult for you to think you’d ever plaster another room with wallpaper. Remember the flowery patterns and the bold (let’s call them vivid) colors? Yikes, I think we all still remember some atrocious patterns in bedrooms, kitchens and dining rooms across the Twin Cities.
