The Nook: Before & After

March 13, 2019

Kitchen Nook Florebela (Navy) Before & After | Hygge & West

I recently moved to the country, wallpapered my kitchen nook and adopted the sweetest little puppy named Otis. So basically all my dreams have come true. Well, mostly :)

Kitchen Nook Before and After | Florebela Navy | Hygge & West

When I moved in the nook did have a sweet, floral wallpaper, but I wanted to go a bit more modern and graphic, but still floral with some country vibes, and definitely wanted to do all for walls plus ceiling to really accentuate the feeling of separate cozy nook space. Florebela (Navy) was the obvious answer, since I've loved it from day one.

Now for some process pointers: At first I thought I'd try removing the wallpaper, but quickly discovered that the wall underneath was basically cardboard. So I stopped that and just covered the walls and ceiling with wallpaper primer (Zinnser's Sheildz) and then crossed my fingers!

That did the trick! The trim was also a nightmare around all those curves. I just ended up pushing the edge into the curves to create a fold and then cutting along the fold line. It was far from perfect, but good enough for me. Just don't look too close! And, of course, wallpapering the ceiling might not be a one person job. That said, it might cause a lot of friction in a relationship... It's hard to say what the best answer is... Either way (a panic attack in which you feel very alone vs a break-up) it is totally worth it!

I decided to put up some curtains to have more privacy from the other house on the property, so chose a red patterned fabric since red is my favorite color and I love it with blue and white. I sewed this myself, so again, don't look too closely. This corner spot is Otis's favorite in the house. He loves to sit and look at the window or take a nap there in the sun. He'll soon grow too big for that spot right? So I don't technically need to train him to not sight there? Okay, phew.

One of my favorite additions to the nook (right after Otis and the wallpaper), is this beautiful lighting from Schoolhouse Electric. I'm a sucker for a graphic pinstripe, so this was perfect. And then I added touch of metal with their Otis base in natural brass.

Best of February Roundup

March 12, 2019

Mermaids Shell Pink wallpaper | Dinara Mirtalipova | Hygge & West

February can be a dark, cold month in much of the country, but luckily we have plenty of pattern-filled eye candy to brighten these dreary days, like this pretty-in-Mermaids (Shell Pink) bathroom! This rosy space by @cheerfullymade was our most loved Instagram post last month, and it's no wonder why. Dancing mermaids, warm golds, and blushing pink—what's not to love?

Diamante Turquoise wallpaper | Laundry Studio | Hygge & West

We love customers who aren't afraid to go big and bold with color, like @curl_simitis did in this poppy dining room. Diamante (Turquoise) with matching trim? We are here for it.

Topiary White bedding | Wit & Delight | Hygge & West

If there's one thing that gets our hearts racing more than puppies and patterns, it's rescue puppies and patterns! Christiana's foster puppy from @coppersdreamrescue is the perfect model for our Topiary (White) bedding—and the perfect furever friend for a lucky someone!

Palma Deep Green wallpaper | Lawson Fenning | Hygge & West

Less is certainly more in this gorgeous vignette from @ranchoventurahaverhive, featuring Palma (Deep Green), a few classic accessories, and the most adorable sconce.

Bruno Gold wallpaper | Tilton Fenwick | Hygge & West

Talk about pattern in high places—we're so digging this Bruno (Gold) ceiling! And the extra touch of gold inside the light fixture? Well played, @alexastevenson, well played. See more of our favorite wallpapers for the fifth wall here.

Arcade Navy wallpaper | Heath Ceramics | Hygge & West

Want to make your carefully curated and styled shelves pop like a pro? Take a cue from @hilaryramsayinteriors and add wallpaper behind them. In this graphic office space, Arcade (Navy) provides beautiful contrast to the white shelving, furniture, and accessories. For more wallpapered shelves and build-ins inspo, head here.

Quilt Celadon wallpaper | Heath Ceramics | Hygge & West

Sometimes just a little pattern is all you need to make a space come alive. In this happy scene from @peachyt, Quilt (Celadon) draws the eye up and acts as the crown jewel atop that gorgeous paneling.

Rosa Indigo wallpaper | Rifle Paper Co. | Hygge & West

Lastly, we're ending February's Best Of Roundup with this delightful dogs and wallpaper situation, tucked just beyond this wonderful and welcoming kitchen from @newoldfarmhouse. We see you, Rosa (Indigo), and that adorable pup, too!

Pattern Players: Louise Jones

February 04, 2019

Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

We're so excited to be chatting with Louise Jones, a Bay Area professional wallpaper installer. Even though we've been in the wallpaper biz for over 10 years now, there are always more things to learn about properly installing wallpaper. So, when our friend Becca Jones of XO Bakes mentioned that her mom is a professional installer we just had to get in touch for definitive, once and for all, answers to our wallpapering questions.

Otomi Pewter wallpaper | Emily Isabella | Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & WestOne of Louise's living room installs features Otomi (Pewter)

Hygge & West: Tell us a bit about your background and how Jones Paint & Paper came to be. How did you become a wallpaper installer?

Louise Jones: When I was in my mid-twenties, I was a stay-at-home mom and my husband was a paint contractor and we needed to make more income. He was always running into clients who needed paper hung. I was good with my hands so I started working with some paper installers and learned the craft.

Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

H&W: What are your favorite and least favorite things about being a wallpaper installer?

LJ: My favorite thing about hanging paper is the challenge. Every paper is different. You need to read the instructions, look at the space you in which will be hanging, and determine how you want the pattern along with the seams to look on the wall. It makes all the difference.

Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

My least favorite thing is when people don’t appreciate the craft of hanging paper and that each paper is different. It takes time and experience to execute a good installation—measuring the space, giving an estimate, prepping walls, learning about the paper, envisioning/laying out the room, etc.

Mermaids Gold wallpaper | Dinara Mirtalipova | Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & WestMermaids (Gold) that Louise installed in a classic black and white bathroom

H&W: Let’s talk wallpaper primer. Do you always use it prior to installation? Do you have a recommended brand? Why is it an important step in the process?

LJ: Yes, yes, yes! I like to use Zinsser 1-2-3 Water Based Primer. It creates a smooth surface for the paper and seals the surface so the paste will not penetrate into the wall material. It's also easy to remove the paper in case you need to do any repairs. I usually do a light sanding over the wall and then do the primer. The walls need to be clean and smooth. I wait at least four hours before I start to hang wallpaper.

Mermaids Gold wallpaper | Dinara Mirtalipova | Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

H&W: What about wallpaper liner and sizing. When and why do you use it? Do you have a recommended brand?

LJ: Sizing is usually clear and easier to use than primer. I personally like the Zinsser 1-2-3 primer, as mentioned. My jobs seem to hang better using that. I think sizing does the same thing. It creates a sealer between the paper, paste, and wallboard. 

If I am hanging over wood-paneled walls or a textured wall, I will use a heavy liner paper and hang it horizontally on the wall. Also, if I am hanging a paper and they recommend using a liner before installation, I will hang a lightweight liner. A true foil paper usually requires a liner beforehand.

Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

H&W: What are the biggest installation mistakes you’ve made (or seen made) that can be easily avoided?

LJ: Wow, there can be a number of things. Here are some tips to avoid mistakes: First, look at a picture of the paper installed to make sure that is the look you want. Order a little more paper than you will actually need; I always do. I play with a piece of paper before I start an installation. Always read the instructions. If the instructions say to let the paper relax for 5 minutes, then let it relax. Hanging the paper too soon can cause bubbles and the paper can shrink on the wall as it dries and you will have a gap between the wallpaper drops.

Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

H&W: Have you ever coated a wallpaper with protective coating? If so, what do you recommend and when would this type of protective coating be necessary or helpful?

LJ: Yes—Modern Masters has a dead flat varnish. It needs to be sprayed on with a fine finish tip with an airless paint sprayer.

Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

H&W: Do you have any favorite wallpaper installations? Tell us about them.

LJ: I've had a lot of them. In general, I love hanging fun colorful wallpaper—something that makes you happy when you walk into the room. I like hanging kids' wallpapers and teenagers' rooms. They always want something different or something that they can come home to. I also love doing accent walls, and fun small-scale residential projects like bathrooms and powder rooms.

Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

H&W: Have you noticed any new wallpaper trends lately? What are the most popular spaces for people to wallpaper?

LJ: A lot of homes are wallpapering ceilings, back sections of bookshelves, accent walls behind beds or in the living room, and, of course, powder rooms are always trendy.

Mermaids Gold wallpaper | Dinara Mirtalipova | Pattern Players: Louise Jones | Jones Paint & Paper | Hygge & West

H&W: Hygge loosely means living cozy, creating contentment, and appreciating small joys in life. How do you think wallpaper adds to the hygge way of life? How do you create hygge in your own home?

LJ: I love your wallpaper! It can be a fun, unique, colorful way to make a house a home. I especially love using color. Finding the right color in a wallpaper can really bring joy to a space and help me appreciate it even more. The right wallpaper can invite you into a space and show off the lovely things in a room.

Best of January Roundup

February 04, 2019

Cat's Meow Gray wallpaper | Julia Rothman | Hygge & West

In much of the country—and especially here in Minneapolis—January was brutally cold. While we won't be sad to say goodbye to the polar vortex, it did give us the perfect excuse to stay indoors and curl up with lots of pattern-filled eye candy. At the very top of our favorite pattern moments list is anytime wallpaper and animals share the spotlight, like this amazing photo of Cat's Meow (Gray) with the one-and-only @bobo_and_fern. Purrfect!

Peonies Yellow wallpaper | Rifle Paper Co. | Hygge & West

Other than cats, January's Instagram favorites were all about the bathroom (one of the very best places to wallpaper, in our humble opinion). This Peonies (Yellow) powder room from @amandamineo was our Insta tribe's favorite post of the month, and for good reason—these are just the happy springtime vibes we need in the icy depths of winter!

Nana Pink wallpaper | Justina Blakeney | Hygge & West

The next bathroom that our followers loved gave us a taste of the tropics in the middle of this arctic weather with a bold half wall of Nana (Pink) paired with just the right amount of brass. Thanks @willscasa!

Otomi Turquoise wallpaper | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

We never tire of bright and bold powder rooms, and this Otomi (Turquoise)-bedecked beauty in @angelatafoya's home is no exception. We love how the pattern and color pop off all that classic white tile.

Rosa Indigo wallpaper | Rifle Paper Co. | Hygge & West

Interior design, like fashion, is cyclical—everything old is new again—and this retro pink bathroom from @designinrareform proves the point with a punch. Here, modern Rosa (Indigo) provides a striking foil to the vintage-inspired tile.

Piedmont Pine wallpaper | Helmsie | Hygge & West

A relative newcomer to the Hygge & West scene, we're drooling over how charming Piedmont (Pine) looks in this teeny powder room. Great choice, @susanroxborough!

Mermaids Red Coral wallpaper | Dinara Mirtalipova | Hygge & West

No bathroom wallpaper conversation would be complete without Mermaids. This graphic bathroom from @mollygriggsinteriors features one of our favorite patterns—Mermaids (Red Coral)—with a classic color combo we can't get enough of—blue and red. Bonus points for the extra pop of pattern in the bottom drawers!

Otomi Taupe wallpaper | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

In December, H&W celebrated the arrival of a new team member—copywriter @melissasueandersen's new baby girl, Siena! Last month, we shared an interview with Melissa and a look at her Otomi (Taupe) nursery—a sweet and subtle pattern that will grow beautifully with baby.

Diamante Gold wallpaper | Laundry Studio | Hygge & West

More exciting team news: @christiana_hyggeandwest was featured on @mydomaine in January, where she chatted all about her life-altering career change from lawyer to wallpaper lady (and author)! Her Diamante (Gold) space looked magazine-worthy in the interview—click here to read the full feature and see what other parts of her home made the cut.

Strawberries White wallpaper | Emily Isabella | Hygge & West

Lastly, we're wrapping up January's best of Instagram roundup with this bright and fresh laundry room from @mgdesignsaustin. From its crisp color palette to its Strawberries (White) walls, this lovely space has us anxiously awaiting spring's arrival.
