Pineapples Going Up

July 02, 2015

I helped my friend put up her Pineapple (Blue) earlier this year and then forgot to blog about it till just now. So without further ado...

Some tips. Wallpaper is best done in stretchy pants.

You only need to apply a thin layer of paste.

Measuring and math can be hard. Really hard. So triple check before you cut.

When in doubt. Pick Pineapples. They look amazing.

That's basically all there is to it! :) Happy 4th of July weekend!

Pearl's Daydream

June 30, 2015

I stayed with my friends Kara and Piero in Chicago last weekend for some brunching and a friend's wedding. They are both exceptionally nice people and have exceptional taste in wallpaper too ;)

They used our Daydream to decorate their adorable baby girl Pearl's room! Such a happy space!

Before and After: Peonies Laundry Room

June 23, 2015

We're constantly on the look out for great projects featuring our wallpaper, and this laundry room designed by Sita Montgomery Interiors absolutely fits the bill!

Here's the before - it's a perfectly fine laundry room. But...

Add a few elements like Peonies (Pale Blue) wallpaper, tile, new appliances and a pretty rug, and you've got yourself one of the lovelier laundry rooms we've ever seen.

I also loved this idea so much - what a smart way to keep your laundry baskets off the floor! Thanks, Sita for sharing these photos! You can read more about the project on her blog, here.

Happy Summer Solstice!

June 19, 2015

When I visit Aimee in Minneapolis, we often like to take our business meetings to the bar at The Bachelor Farmer. Chatting wallpaper over cocktails is even more fun. Plus, they used our Nethercote wallpaper in their upstairs dining area, so we still feel very close to home :) Our favorite drink there is the classic French 75, and we think it's the perfect cocktail to shake up in celebration of the longest day of the year. Pip Hanson (The Bachelor Farmer's renowned beverage director, who just left for a sabbatical in London - lucky guy!), was kind enough to share his recipe with us. And, now we're passing it along to you. Take notes! Here's the basic recipe:

2 oz gin
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup (2:1::sugar:water)
Shake, strain into wine glass and top with sparkling wine of your choice

2 oz gin... It doesn't actually have to be Hendricks. It just happens to look good in photos. The stylist's choice in gin!

2:1 simple syrup is a go! Not totally sure I did this right. But it's simple, so how could I have messed it up?

I might have winged the precise amount of lemon juice a bit. Measuring would probably be better, just not quite as fun.

Topped with Gruet. Being from New Mexico, we're Gruet loyalist. Which is easy to be, because it's delicious.

And now for the pro tip from Pip: "As for a tip to making this drink, one thing that is important is to shake long enough so that the drink dilutes properly. If you don't dilute enough, the sparkling wine combines with the cocktail to make a little too strongly-flavored a mix; we like a more subtle combination. And use fresh-squeezed lemon juice, of course!" Thank you, Pip and Bachelor Farmer - chin, chin!

*Don't forget too that serving drinks on a Peonies wallpapered tray is also a very good idea. DIY tips here.

How May We Serve You?

June 18, 2015

On a wallpapered tray! So, I found an old serving tray and thought it could use some refreshing, Peonies wallpaper style. I gathered my supplies, thinking I'd paint it gold and use a scrap of Persimmon on the inside. But then, the gold paint I had didn't really look so good. So I took a breather, regrouped and...

Slapped some paste on to the back of the Peonies (Yellow) instead, which I thought would look great with the black tray (and because I was trapped waiting for UPS so unable and/or too lazy to go get more paint). I considered taking some step by step photos, but it's really just so easy and I question whether I'm actually detail oriented enough to provide precise instructions :) Basically, you just cut a scrap of wallpaper that's a couple inches larger than the inside of the tray, paste the back, smooth it down and trim with a craft knife.

And the most important step, of course, it to load it up with your favorite cocktail mixins' - more on that tomorrow!
