Luckily, the week is nearing an end! After the dramatic week I have had I will welcome the weekend as a new beginning. A harbinger of hope. There is an eerie quiet in my heart today as old structures fall to the wayside.
Things I am thankful for this week:
Getting caught in the rain
Dear friends (Sara-that means you!!)
A fresh page in a new chapter
People who share in my vision to create inspiration, peace and positivity
And wallcoverings of course!!!
Villa Nova wallcoverings were inspiration enough to put a smile on my face! What about you? I seem to be gravitating towards green and blue palettes these days. Breezy summer getaways in mind. The Tiku wallcovering, pictured above, is a graphic wonderland of swirly images in a beautiful pale palette punctuated with black and gray. Sweet and cheery!
I love love love the Rowan wallpaper pictured above! It comes in different colours and it is gorgeous in each shade.
For a muted look you can layer more saturated colours. The High Society collection of wallcoverings like the Facet version shown here are so pretty. Be sure to take a peek at the Tiffany Cherry!
And last but not least, my favourite! The Hydrangea wallpaper! Um, I also love the chair, the pillow, the curtain, the carpet and well, the whole look of this beautiful space. My aim for next week? Peaceful rumination, organization and thoughtful encounters with a whole lot of decor-ific glimpses of beauty!

Every detail in this photo from Elle Decor is pristine. Graphic wallpaper used in small doses is exciting, it adds a fresh perspective and brings life to an area that may have been overlooked without it. A wallpapered desk area is ideal, in that it provides a pretty backdrop for whatever type of creative endaevor you wish to attempt while at your desk. Be it letter writing, reading, writing your next hot novel, or whatever else.
For this wallpaper, I like the ornate quality of the white accents found in the mirror, the lamp shade and the vases. However, those empty shelves would not last long in my house and would be cluttered right up with knick knacks, books and stacks upon stacks of magazines!
To create your own wallpapered desk area, choose a bright, bold, graphic wallpaper that grips you in one way or another. Apply the wallpaper behind the wall your desk will rest against. Layer furniture, accessories and pretty objects in mini vignettes to create a serene modern workspace you will long to escape to.
A wallpapered desk area can be create in any nook or cranny currently not getting the attention it deserves in your home! Ideas for such spaces include under-used closets (just remove the door), armoires (awesome because you can close it up when not in use) and spaces created between oversized pieces of furniture (two bookshelves for instance).
