Yesterday a dear friend of mine and I had a much-needed girl’s day. After a brunch at the ever so lovely Blos Café, we headed out to Vintage Vista. I just have to take a moment to say that this store is fabulous and everyone there is so helpful and patient! Thanks Stace for the introduction. We happened to stumble upon some amazing Christian Lacroix samples and I’m totally crushing. I’ve been looking for va-va-voom wallpaper for quite some time and it always seemed so unobtainable. Obviously, I didn’t look closely enough.
Since we’ve got linen textured walls in most of our house we don’t really have the luxury of having tons of spaces where we could potentially have wallpaper. We’re limited to two spaces which are our guest toilet and the studio and study area. I believe firmly that guest toilets or powder rooms need to be lush and beautiful. It is not like a bathroom that needs to be functional, it is the only place where your guests have a bit of privacy whilst visiting and you really want that to be comfortable and inviting. Since ours is minute (as in tiny is an understatement) we can’t really have tons of things in there. Thus the walls need to be spectacular. I’m elated to know that I can now start planning my way out little space. Feast your eyes on some of his fabric and wallpaper samples.
