Serious love affair

I have not been able to tear myself away from staring at gorgeous wallpapers...

Which is ridiculous because I live in a rental and that is a major "no-no" (not to mention incredibly stupid because HELLO that would be a lot of work for nuttin')...

But has completely not stopped me from having a wild and passionate love affair with fab wallcoverings (sorry hubbs)...










But the real affair is with just one:



Behold, the Ferm Living Wilderness...be still my beating heart!

And just looky who had this gorgeousness in her entryway and doesn't it look divine (btw Naomi, I am soooo jealous):



**update**

And ferm living has a web site with other examples of this *fantabulous* wallpaper:




And couldn't resist this one:

Dear Aubrey, don't let a little thing like "rental" stop you from exercizing your love for wallpaper. Get an hanging sanded mdf panel, or two, or three, and cover it up with wallpaper. And you can display wallpaper as art, and change it whenever your tired! Believe me, I´ve done it on entrance wall, it worked out fab!

Love the third, fourth and fifth wallpapers... What beautiful additions to the room.

I love those wallpapers. Just order samples and then frame them. Instant art!

Alicia xoxxo said...

Great picks!!! I love all of them!!!! I have never been a huge fan of wallpaper until recently!!! I love looking at home decor. But it makes me want to re-do our entire house and we just do not have the time of the funds for that! But a girl can dream, right?

Fashion Meets Food said...

Wow I absolutely love them all and now I want to go on a massive decorating spree!

Naomi@DesignManifest said...

Awe thanks girl! I still love that paper. I rent that condo out now and whenever I stop by the unit I pet the paper a little bit while my tenants aren't looking!

thanks for all the love. seriously you can stalk me any day ;)

Thanks for stopping by my blog and being my 100th follower! I now get to be your 175th! Woohoo!

I am a wallpaper junkie! Love it! I've got it in my kitchen and guest bath and would put it in every room if I could afford too ;)

Cassie {Hi Sugarplum!} said...

Those are great choices!!! I don't have any wallpaper in my home...hmmmm. I guess I tend to use paint for pattern on the walls.

Meghan @ My Wishful Thinking said...

I know what you mean about renting but I agree with Angela above. I picked my favourite wallpapers and framed them and put them up in a gallery wall and even though it's more subtle, it still looks great! I adore the Fern Living Wilderness paper! UK based Fabrics and Papers have some gorgeous designs if you want to indulge some more??

elizabeth@themustardceiling said...

Beautiful wallpapers. I love the 2nd one and the 8th one...they are incredible. Angela has an amazing idea hang them on MDF, or get a room screen and hang the wallpaper on that. It would add such a punch to your room.

Renee B. said...

Thanks for all of the inspiration! Now I want to redecorate! And yes...Miss Bradshaw...she's a special lady! :)

Amanda Hill said...

Great wallpaper! Heading over JM now!

Miss Southern Prep said...

I LOVE the 3rd one and of course, the wallpaper in Carrie's apartment--so chic!

Tamra of walkswithBella said...

I love wallpaper!! Unfortunately, as a renter I can not fulfill my wallpaper cravings. These prints are gorgeous. I love Fern Wilderness! Nice share.

These homes are very lovely! And anything with Carrie is just fabulous!

emily said...

All of those wallpapers are fabulous! I was always a little scared of wallpaper but started off small (and temporary) by wallpapering my bookshelves and creating removable panels for the bedroom. Maybe that would work in a rental!

And breaking news . . . I got a C&H painting! We found another one we actually liked better (funny how things work out)! Yippee!

natasha {schue love} said...

Wallpaper is SO fun again...I want to wallpaper a room...it ads so much interest! Just perfect!

Chelsea Talks Smack said...

YES YES YES TO ALL OF IT.

Julip Made said...

Thank you again Aubrey for this awesome guest post! I need to check to make sure I have all of these when I get back!

I'm with you Tamra, I have renter envy and can't wait for the day I can slap pretties on my walls!

hi-d said...

I remember when I was a child, everything was about wallpaper...then when I started getting older, it became a thing of the past. It's kind of fun seeing it come back around.

We rent as well, so there is no way I'd ever attempt this. haha...

Kristine - A Graceful Home said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE wallpaper! I've only done one wall in a room so far, but I definitely have another on the list already! So many beautiful choices it's hard to narrow it down to just one! That one from Ferm Living is amazing! Love all of your picks!

These are fabulous! That upholstered chest is just divine! Enjoy the lovely day, Kellie xx

Kelly said...

Don't get me wrong, I love that paper, but I am in love with those couches. So white, I'd fear sitting on them, but still! Gorgeous!

Rachel @ Little Bits of Lovely said...

Love your picks, especially the Ostrich Beware the moon wallpaper, I will never tire of this :)

Brandi said...

You could always do a stencil or something to look like wallpaper. That paper is gorgeous though! Add it to the "some day" files, sigh...

Gabriella {sensiblyluxe} said...

Aubrey {All Things Bright and Beautiful} said...

Bree, I tried to track down the wallpaper source...but all I could find was that the image was originally from House to Home and I couldn't for the life of me find that image on their site (it's HUGE!)...sorry i couldn't be more help!
