My goodness, Cece Fourchy is KILLING us with her fabulous posts lately! Whoever thinks wallpaper is outdated should think again. Cece’s roundup of her favorite wallpapered rooms will have you papering every wall in the house. And maybe even the ceiling too.
As you may know from last monthâs column, my decorating resolution for 2012 is to âgo bold.” Bright colors, whimsical finds, vibrant artâI love it all. I havenât had a hard time keeping my vibrant promise, and the next saturated step on my bold agenda is wallpaper. Weâre not talking classic Laura Ashley florals or subdued toiles. I want the kind of wallpaper that truly makes a room: colorful, patterned, and daring. For this monthâs post, Iâve gathered some seriously inspiring rooms with wallpapers that make a statement. Iâve never thought about wallpapering every room in my house, but these fabulous photos may have me singing a different tuneâ¦
When I spotted this shot of It girl Chloe Sevignyâs apartment in an old issue of House & Garden, my jaw dropped. That trellis print! It also doesnât hurt that the bicycle matches perfectly.
Miles Redd takes a cue from Margot Tenenbaum with this red zebra in his powder room, featured in ELLE DÃ©cor.
Steven Gambrel gave wall covering a new spin with an array of botanical prints in this bathroom. I love how it has the feel of a collage without losing an ounce of sophistication.
Aerin Lauder, possibly the chicest gal on the planet, repeats the black and ivory print of her walls with a ruffled bed skirt. The luxe fur throw and oversized monograms are the perfect finishing touches.
This apartment featured in Vogue is one of my all-time favorites. The modern art on the walls may not be actual wallpaper, but it serves as a perfectly colorful backdrop in this stunning room. Donât you love the lush fabrics and mixed patterns of the furniture?
A classic statement for a home in New Orleans, this wallpaper featured in Lonny could not be more chic. I imagine it in my (imaginary) enormous mansionâs foyer, accented with a glittering crystal chandelier.
Betsy Burnham brings her eye for mixing patterns to her office with this striking red floral motif. She accents it perfectly with every detail. Wouldnât you love coming to work in this space?
