i spy: prints and pattern.

i’m feeling all inspired by pretty prints and patterns lately. bright and cheerful, they add a great pop to any room – particularly ones dressed in white. add a stripe or a fancy floral, or maybe both and pow! it looks fresh and modern. just check out kate spade’s london shop’s striped staircase – wow! ka-pow! today, i spy prints and pattern.

floral wallpaper photographed by chris everard; poketo’s fun geometric themis mobile; arabella mcnie; castle linens; sandra lane; pretty white floorboards make these sweet prints stand out, via la maison d’anna g; beautiful bedroom via the handmade home; Masala Chai teatowel by Kangan Arora; and orla kiely pencils as seen by lara rossignol.

striped rag rugs from rugcycle; knitted winter throw and cushion cover from catherine tough; pretty print wallpapered rooms styled by rose hammick and kate french; clever dish rack display via david cleveland; some adorable floor cushions via one claire day; i love peeking at these prints through vintage cabinet glass doors via junk garden; and more pretty castle linens.

    If I could start buying my furniture all over, I think I would go with white. Not necessarily because I like it, but because almost all of my SF apartments have been white (and no painting allowed). As I begin to pack to move into my next bright white apartment next week, I am lacking inspiration. What can you do with a tiny apartment with very bright white walls and very dark brown/black furniture? Have you dug up any good pictures? I am looking for a montage to be my muse. Can you help me SFGirlByBay???

  11. That staircase never fails to inspire me! It’s so gorgeous. I also love the cushion couch in the bottom photo. That’s calling for a good book!


  12. Love that rosy wallpaper and wood panelled bedroom wall! I’m now staring at my boring staircase, and thinking it could use some serious funktifying too!

    I love the lanterns over the bed. I have a super colorful anthro bedspread and have been looking for something really fun to decorate around it…can’t decide if I would like lanterns enough all the time or feel like I was always at a party :)
