Interiors: Take a seat

An easy way to add comfort or attitude to a space can be as simple as finding the perfect chair.  These would add sleek glamour and sophistication to any sitting room:

Interiors: Charming wallpaper

Wallpaper can add texture & design to a room that otherwise might feel dim and uninspired.  You can achieve dramatic impact by covering just one wall, or even a partial wall. If the plunge is scary – start out with a closet, laundry room, or bookcase lining.

Some tips: Minimize the surrounding decor; bringing in competing furniture or rugs will just muddle the wall space and look over-designed.  Chose designs that don’t incorporate too much color, stick to 1-4 colors per print.  Trim work is a great way to break up the wall space. Textured wall coverings are superb for spaces that aren’t exposed to much natural light.  To offset floral prints, use clean lines in your furnishings.  On the contrary, to offset geometric and linear prints use more feminine and soft pieces.

I am personally fond of the wallpaper collections at:

 Farrow & Ball | Schumacher | Cole & Son | Graham & Brown

| Farrow & Ball takes a unique approach when crafting their wall coverings.  Instead of using ink, they use their own custom paints to give unique texture and color to each print |
