wallpaper my way:)




This weekend I went antique shopping with my good friend Rigel, and all the mid century mod magic (most of which I can only afford to dream about) has inspired me to make this wallpaper pattern. I liked it sooo much, I've decided to make little collages to see how if would look in a 'real' world. Here's a pick into my head. Hope you like it:)

i lOVE the way you've done this. it makes it so easy to visualise how the wallpaper would look. just brilliantly done. my favourite is the last combo. blue and white. i'm not really a blue girl, but this just works for me.

This pattern is gorgeous! My favourite is also the blue and white duo, not only for the colourway but because it really works great in a bigger scale. I'd love to have it on one of my walls.

Super nice! I like the brown and green best. That elephant wearing the tie is rather dapper indeed. I hope you get this made for real!!!

Love the third one! Seeing this kind of stuff takes me back to the early 70's and my grandma's home. Gotta love it. Wish I could afford this stuff too. :)

You're incredible! This is both beautiful and mad and hilarious. I'd love to use it on the Elle Deco blog, if you're ok with that?
