Editor’s Inspiration: Statement Wallpaper

Senior design editor Stacey Smithers shares three wallpapers she’s loving right now. 
Stacey-Smithers-FeaturedImgOne of my personal resolutions for 2016 was to really dive into decorating in my new home… to be a little bit bolder! So lately, I’ve been all about wallpaper. After all, nothing sets off a space quite like beautiful pattern. Pictured above are some current favorites from my inspiration board.

1. I’m very drawn to this charming, Arts and Crafts-style wallpaper from Trustworth Studios.

2. This Farrow & Ball print dates all the way back to 1870 (it was drawn from the dining room at England’s historic Brockhampton Hall). I’d combine it with printed drapes or textiles for a layered look.

3. This last paper is a real heartbreaker! It’s created by English artist Marthe Armitage and hand-printed from lino blocks in her studio. Though all her patterns are stunning (and can be made in custom colors), I’m particularly smitten with her Oakleaf design.
