HOME-SPIRATION: Patterned Powder Room

The only thing about wall paper that I really have experience with is being a little kid and watching my parents scrape off bunny wallpaper trim from the kitchen in our new house. I have been a skeptic of wallpaper ever since then! I don’t know about wallpapering a whole room, but I love the idea of using wallpaper in small spaces, the powder room in particular. I think these small spaces are the perfect place to go wild with pattern and print. I find it the perfect place to express the craziest ideas! Here are some of my favorite home-spiration images for wallpapered powder rooms.

REINCARNATION: Anthropologie Tablewares

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

So I, like everyone else in the world, am OBSESSED with Anthropologie tableware. Over the years I have slowly purchased bowls, plates, and mugs from Anthropolgie from their glorious sale shelves. My theory is that if I slowly collect them, my kitchen will one day be nothing but mixed matched and beautiful Anthropolgie tableware. I have recently wanted to speed up this process so I have tried to find less expensive but just as unique routes for tableware! One of the greatest places to look is ETSY! There are TONS of ceramic and pottery shops that have inexpensive, unique, and beautiful pieces! Another option is to look at department store websites… and buy cool plates or unique mugs as singles and not as place settings so you still get that mixed match Anthropologie feel! Here are a few of my favorites for you to check out!…

This is a beautiful bowl by Owl Creek Ceramics’ Etsy shop! Only $15 plus shipping… and they come in a million different colors
