Wednesday Inspiration: Rustic Accent Walls

Rustic themed wallcoverings are definitely trending right now. Historically, only people in urban, loft-styled dwellings decorated their walls with this kind of wallpaper.

Earthy, weathered patterns are quickly gaining steam with a sizable segment of the population (i.e. brick, stone, wood boards) and we’re seeing folks do some pretty creative rooms with them!

This morning we were sent three amazing photos from a longtime customers of ours, located in Perth, Australia. You may remember her house from a previous post we did in June.

She decorated her bedrooms this Spring and spent the middle of the Summer (or Winter depending on which side of the equator you live on) working on her living room. We think it looks great! Thanks Paula :)

Fun Friday: Decorating With Yellow Wallpaper

Summertime is here, signaling longer and warmer days for the next three months. Fond memories await as you start planning trips to the beach, work in your garden and those projects around your home you’ve been meaning to get tackle.

This season also presents an opportunity for would-be decorators refresh some rooms in their house with new wallpaper. Some fantastic new themed collections have been released in the last three months, like Olde Francaise, and more are scheduled to follow.

However, due to the time of the year, we thought that it would be appropriate to inspire you with some creative yellow patterns, since it’s the dominate color for this time of year.

Decorating your walls with yellow, either with paint or wallpaper, significantly brightens your room.

Yellow has always been a great mood enhancer due to its association with sunshine, warmth most of all, fun.  This should interest anyone with an interest in uplifting the spirits of a particular room.

Take a look at some fresh ideas that you can personally take advantage to give your room a fresh look for the most popular season of the year.

Yellow Wallpaper In Kitchen

This color is one of the best options for adding amusement and life to an interior space. Besides just adding it to your walls, it can be fun to look for matching yellow decorations that will complement your walls.

You might like the color but don’t want to decorate an entire room with it. No problem! Yellow is such a bright color that you only need a pinch of it for it to have its desired effect.

Adds pops of yellow throughout a room to achieve a balanced color scheme that is cheerful without becoming too intense.

Add Dashes Of Yellow For Quick Pops of Color

Adding some white and rustic decor to your accent wall can give a particular space an upbeat vintage look.

Traditional yellow floral wallpaper and gray paint make great complements like the one seen bellow. Add some accent decor, a little black and a vintage photo to complete the room.

Feature Friday: Olde Francaise by Seabrook

Olde Francaise Wallpaper Book

It’s absolutely stunning how these designers find their inspiration for these wallpaper books!

This month, Seabrook Wallcovering has released a brand new collection, called Olde Francaise.

By now, we are used to Seabrook coming up with unique series based around tightly themed subjects but this one, as they say, “takes the cake.”

The entire collection is inspired by French antiquity, from King Louis XVI to Napoleon. The culture, fashions and lifestyle of the French Empire during their colonial days embody these wallpapers.

You’ve got to have a pretty creative and imaginative team in order to successfully represent an entire time period in one single wallpaper collection, and yet that is just what this design studio has accomplished. Here’s a small sample of the patterns within this series:

Newest Candice Olson Wallpaper Collection: Modern Luxe

This is a fantastic collection that perfectly mirrors the design philosophy we’ve all come to expect from one of the premier interior designers in North America.

The designs featured in Modern Luxe are distinctly modern and will appeal to anyone who likes contemporary yet tasteful wall décor.

The use of innovative textures is what makes this particular Candice Olson book unique among the other seven.

Though her books have always featured textured patterns , Modern Luxe pushes the use of distinctive textured elements in wallpaper to another level.

Soft felt, capriz shells, banana fibers, glass beads and a mix of sand/glitter bits are embedded into many of the patterns.

Take a look at some of the room scenes bellow for a quick glimpse of what some of these patterns look like on when hung up.

Sometimes it’s hard to get a true picture of what a pattern looks like from the product page so we took some close up photos of the pages that really stood out.  Hope you enjoy :)
