Instead, I've been having a wallpaper love-in, which took far less energy, and filled my head with ideas. Actually, my head was already, and always is filled with ideas. I have BIG plans to transform the top level of our house (guest room and studio) to make much better use of the space, and that's where the wallpaper comes in. Yes, despite me claiming back in January that I was scared of wallpaper and that I couldn't possibly commit, I'm planning on doing just that soon. And I'm excited.

So excited, that I have barely stopped looking at wallpaper since I decided to go for it. I know what I'd like, but I can't afford it. Typical right?
I'm obsessed with many of Kelly Wearstler's wallpaper designs, but they're eye-wateringly expensive and just not going to happen, so I've been searching for something that still takes my breath away, but not because it costs so much money!

I've found some beautiful designs that I thought I'd share with you today. Soon I'll tell you about my overall plans for these rooms too, but for now, lets look at the wallpaper options. One of these will be 'THE ONE'.
First up is a selection of designs from Feathr. How could you not like a company whose motto is 'More Good Shit, Less Shit Shit'? It was love at first sight for me with Feathr, who work with artists around the world to showcase their wallpaper designs. They're a lovely bunch, and they also have a call for submissions for their 2016/2017 collection on right now, so you can submit a design if you want to.
There are a few designs in their current collection that I've really fallen for, and I can't wait to get my hands on the samples.

Yes, there is very much a monochrome/neutral theme going on here, which I'm really loving right now, but I'm not absolutely wedded to that idea, and there are some amazing colours to choose from too in all of the above designs...

Next up, some more seriously cool designs from newish-to-me US design house Drop It Modern...
Clockwise from top left: Crystalline in Blush/Black/Gray, Crystalline in Sand, Bond Girl in Creme/Black and Kitten in Blush.
How on earth will I choose just one? Whatever my decision, it's going to be bold and beautiful, so watch this space!
