Wallpaper from Head to Toe

Everyone is going crazy about wallpaper these days. Its popularity doesn't seem to be slowing down anytime soon...
So, if you're going to try out the trend, why not go big and bold with head-to-toe graphic prints? After all, life's too short to hold back!

On a calmer note, I'm honored to be on automatism today, where Lori asked me to capture what summer means to me in one snapshot. It wasn't easy, but the challenge sure was fun! Here it is!

Great post! These are 2 of my favorite papers and I think Lhasa has been discontinued. Sad! Anyone know where some on this colorway might still be lurking?

What fun pictures! I have got to get a picture of my mother-in-law's bathroom - it is wall papered "head to toe" with the blueprints for the house! Wallpaper is so much fun...

I've lived through this era once, but it surely is pretty. I think I had flamestitch wallpaper in my dining room then. Someone said it looked like an electrocardiogram.:)

I love wall paper especially used in an unexpected or freshly modern way. I'm not sure I could do four walls and the ceiling though, I'd have a hard time falling asleep!

Love that first room! I am a wallpaper freak. Almost every room in my house is wallpapered.

These photographs are stunning... p.s. also absolutely loved your guest post on automatism. Well written and very insightful.

Woooah! These are crazy! I somehow love them, though... I honestly didn't think I liked wallpaper until I stayed at the Viceroy in Santa Monica. Kelly Wearstler adores it, so it was placed throughout -- I absolutely loved it! Now I want to wallpaper my bathroom :)

Thanks for sharing these...

xoxo

I admit that selecting wallpaper is tougher than picking paint, but thank you for the great inspiration.

Love the duvet and pillow covers in the last shot! Does any one know which issue it is from or where to find it?

That was awesome! I love the second photo. The design of the wallpaper really suits my taste. Thanks!
