Ready to commit

I think I am finally ready to commit…

to some wallpaper. Serious subject, right? I have been contemplating it for awhile now, but always manage to chicken out right before ordering.

I think the fact that I am only looking at doing an accent wall in Henry’s room is working to my advantage. It’s not like I’m covering a whole room. But, I am having some trouble narrowing down my choices…who wants to help?

The only thing that is permanent in his room right now is his bed frame which I have painted in orange, Annie Sloan’s Barcelona Orange, to be exact.

So, we know we are working with a pop of orange.

All of these wallpapers are from Antonina Vella’s Contempo line. You could find these anywhere, but if you are in Columbia, go up to Johnston Paint & Decorating…they carry everything!

Ok, so option #1: LAVINIA (images via )

with a light brown background

with a camel color background (looks more orange here)

and the one I’m leaning towards…with the bluish green background.

I think this might be my favorite because I love this picture that is featured in the book

I think this print is fun and boyish, yet it can go a little glam, too. She’s versatile. Right up my alley…

Option #2: FRANCO

in the olivey green and gray

in black & white (this is a close second)

and in blue & brown

Option #3: RINA

in brownish taupes

in creams and greens

and in blue.

All of these are priced somewhere between $65-$96 per roll, but the best part is that Johnston Paint & Decorating has them marked 40% off until the end of March and since I’m just doing an accent wall, this shouldn’t be too pricey. So, I have approximately 10 days to make a decision…anyone want to help a girl out? Leave me a comment with your favorite out of the selection or your top 3…if you hate them all, tell me. I’m not afraid…

  1. Congratulations on taking a big step to commit to wallpaper, Jesse. You aren’t alone in your hesitancy. We’ve tried to make it easier for folks to do so with our artist-designed, digitally printed repositionable, removable without leaving a residue, AND reusable (better for the environment) wallcovering. Actually offering “slipcovers for your walls” that you can change seasonally or whenever you wish. It DIY and you don’t have the mess of using glue and water. Check it out @
    Speaking of using water, checked the Charity:Water campaign progress. Come on people- dig in your pockets and let’s support Jesse’s effort to help provide something as simple as clean water that we take for granite everyday to villagers who don’t have any.

    • Thanks Lorre Lei! I LOVE your faux linen in green! It’s gorgeous! When I finish a better area for my craft room/office, I want something bright like flower power in Cerulean-Teal. And I was actually thinking about trying the faux bois in the unbleached on the ceiling? Do you think that would work? I would love to see it up if you have any pictures, please share!
      I know…I cannot lie…it has been hard not seeing more people donate to my water campaign. I am just so incredibly thankful to the everyone that has and that is what I have to focus on. I’m going to keep on keeping on. I have handed out tons of fliers, mailed letters, talked to many and I am hoping that because people saw that I had a couple of months, that they put it on their “to do” list. I don’t care what I have to do, but I will get to that goal one way or another!!! Thank you so much for your support and your post…we can do so much good with having a voice here online! I truly appreciate you and I’m so glad that we have met!
