JAMIE LOVES in August…Wallpaper!
For every project I work on, one of my favorite parts is picking out the wallpaper. There are so many amazing wallpaper companies that come out with new wallpapers every season. From silks, to grass cloths, to leathers — this is not your grandmother’s wallpaper anymore.
One of my favorite wallpapers of all time has been the fish wallpaper from de Gournay. This hand-painted wallpaper company specializes in reproductions of historic prints. Most of the paper is inspired from 18th century chinoiserie and 18th century French designs. The fish is my favorite for many different reasons; I love fish whether they are in a bathroom, or even in the kitchen. And, it’s sophisticated, yet not too serious.
Grass cloth is my all-time favorite type of wallpaper to use. I love how grass cloth adds not only color to a space, but also amazing texture. Grass cloth can warm up a space and can be used in an elegant or casual setting. There are so many amazing companies out there that make gorgeous grass cloths; from Philip Jefferies and Dedar to Thibaut and Zoffany, it’s a blast going through the endless choices.
Enjoy your walls, explore the world of wallpaper, and don’t be afraid to try something new in your home.
