i was most inspired by this feature on lonny editor in chief michelle adam’s feminine but bold bedroom. i mean, you’re taking chances when you pair rose chintz and leopard and a polkadot print, am i right? but this works quite beautifully and screams style. she used schumacher’s pyne hollyhock chitnz print to create a gorgeous canopy over her bed, cleverly hung from her ceiling using west elm’s industrial pipe curtain rods (i did this to hide my unsightly washer & dryer in my guest bedroom – works like a charm!). i love this floral print, and noticed etsy shops have loads of it — from the fabric itself to pre-made pillows for those into DDIY (don’t do it yourself). i loved michelle’s bedroom before, too (just below) — prior to the curtains. she still had a lot of prints going on, and her bedroom gallery looked glam, too. i went on the hunt for other black & white inspiration, like anthropologie’s smoky rose wallpaper, the dot tanzania wallpaper from Thibaut design and rifle paper co.’s city toile, which i’d love to find a spot for somewhere in my house. anyway, i guess i’m reevaluating the power of the print these days — for more check out last week’s funky print post.

  1. The polka dots are so fun…I’ve been seeing more and more decorators go wild with this print and it just makes me happy.
    P.S. I’m thankful you’re such an early poster. Considering you’re in CA it’s great that I get to see posts in the afternoon here in Germany. :o)

    • i tried searching Lonny and found the images but there’s no mention of the artist, other than ‘polka dotted’ painting but no links. I wonder if she painted it herself? Seems like you could. Or, possibly frame a piece of wallpaper.
