Its an affliation that strikes my rarely thank goodness but I must say I am in a right old kerfuffle about the design of our stand in NY this summer. We are launching our expanded lighting range at the Gift Fair in August in NY which I am hugely excited about. I need to nail the design pronto to stop the gremlins visiting me in my sleep and yet I am a tad stumped. We can't do our usual create a country glam pad look as we do in Paris its not practical being so far away and yet doing something simple is causing me all sorts of anxiety problems. This weekend when I should have been out and about wondering through town in the sunshine I was pouring over wallpaper samples hoping they might inspire. Trouble being there are only three papers in the globe that appeal. Papers are a fabulous way to transform a small space by the way - think loo, bedroom, study, entrance way or my stand so they could indeed work and yet I need more, its not totally working out in my head yet. I won'tÂ bore you with my probs here are my top three papers all of which are super cool no matter where you use them: [caption id="attachment_2012" align="aligncenter" width="497" caption="Photography Graham Atkins Hughes"][/caption] Love love love the bookcase wallpaper, have it am home, in my store want it in my car to line the roof!! Best best paper on the planet, we sell it in the store and its by the fabulous artist Deborah Bowness. If I could wear it I would. Next paper is the Perroquet wallpaper by Nina Campbell - it feels French, quirky hand painted and bohemian all in one. Adore it Finally Jimmie Martin's paper its a little kick ass, a little rock n roll and super cool.
