Wallpaper to die for

I love your photos! Especially the Japanese Magnolia, my favorite flowering tree of the season.

My parents were in Phoenix last weekend and my Mom and I were laughing about our family trip out west when I was 10 or so... when we got to Arizona I said: "Where's the wallpaper, everything's stucco!" In 1992, everyone I knew had wallpaper. Lots of small flower patterns and hunter green walls with Laura Ashley borders. You know. Turns out there were many signs along the way that interior design was the profession for me. I mean, what 10 year old comments on regional design aesthetic?

I'm off the borders, but I still really love wallpaper. Luckily in my job I get to basically sit among stacks of wallpaper samples on a regular basis. And it's so hot right now which makes me so happy because there's so much to choose from! Check out some of my faves below, and check out my pinterest board for more inspiration.

The dragon print comes in fabric also and I have about 4 places in my apartment where I think it would be fantastic. You may recognize it from the header of this pretty famous blog.

Alas, the one problem with renting... wallpaper is typically frowned upon. So I'll just live vicariously through my parents powder room!
