If they could only come up with a simple way to remove it, I’d be on it like glue (no pun intended). I am absolutely LOVING the new patterns coming out this fall, and spring ’09. Although I don’t think I could personally commit to putting it on a wall, I would most definitely consider using it in other applications such as in a frame, on on a piece of furniture. What? Wallpaper furniture? Yes, my friends, it can be done.
Here are a couple example’s of some DIY wallpaper project’s that don’t include a wall.
• Book covers
• Drawer liner
• Back of a shelf or bookcase
• Cover the outside of a dresser
• In a frame
I found some examples on over Apartment Therapy illustrating these examples of framed wallpaper, both new pieces and vintage:
There is a great DIY project on Design*Sponge with instructions on how to properly line dresser drawer’s:
On the left, this gorgeous bookshelf is on Apartment Therapy, love the boldness of this pattern! On the right, these Ikea storage boxes covered in pretty wallpaper are shown in a house tour of fellow Canadian Claire Louise Milne over at decor8.
Here are some beautiful patterns I found from Farrow & Ball that I absolutely this would be beautiful in any of the applications noted above. F&B’s patterns are subtle elegance at it’s best.
Ferm Living, a Danish design company specializing in “graphic lifestyle” products; includes not only wallpaper, but wall stickers and fabrics as well. Their design’s are simple, yet timeless and fun. A few of my favorites are below, and the best part about them is that they do ship to Canada!
There are hundred's of applications for wallpaper, besides the wall, and I encourage you to try them all. I did a google search and found hundred's upon hundred's of online resources, so don't limit yourself to the big box stores. There is so much more out there to choose from!
