Wallpaper For Accent Walls
I would love to have wallpapered accent walls in our dining and family rooms, plus a small entry/powder room in a fun pattern. I love wallpaper — the hit of colour and pattern, and how it can serve as art (of which we don’t have much). But who knew how hard it is to choose? Two lines that I will likely go with are Galbraith & Paul and Eskayel.
Galbraith & Paul is available in Canada through Y&Co in Toronto. I have used their fabric before and love the handcrafted, blockprint feel it has. There are some wonderful patterns, with too many colours to choose from! Here are a few that I’m considering:
1. Small Star
2. Ivy Paisley
Another wallpaper line I adore is Eskayel, based out of Brooklyn, NY. The patterns I like best also have a handcrafted feel to them, but in a more abstract, painterly way. Kind of like of a modern tie-dye project:
5. Setting Sun
Hmmm… I love them all! Which one is your favourite?
