From our annual thanksgiving day #walkinthewoods. @kyrahartnett liked these so much that they ended up in the dining room decor for the feast. #happythanksgivng

#wallpaperwednesday We have long admired the innovation and beauty of the #handcrafted #wallpaper made by @mayaromanoff. Their spectacular Beadazzled wallcovering was introduced in 2003, the same year we launched our first collection of #handprinted wallpaper and we were immediately smitten. After 45 years of “making walls beautiful," #MayaRomanoff continues to be at the forefront of the industry by pioneering new techniques and materials each year. They recently posted a video providing a behind the scenes look at the community of artisans who make their wallpaper by hand in their Chicago studio using glass beads, gold leaf, seashells, wood, hand stitching and more. Definitely worth a watch! Link in profile. #madeintheusa #madebyhand #wallpaperinspiration

#twenty2coloroftheweek #oxblood The lush sedum in our garden have turned a striking shade of rusty brown, calling to mind our Preclipse #wallpaper in Inca – part of our collection of commercial wallcovering for @designtex_inc. Kyra’s classic (pre-smart phone) leather @officialfilofax fits right in, along with a taste of very dark maple syrup crafted right up the road from us, a trio of @benjaminmoore paint chips and our daughter’s colored pencils. Feeling more noble by the minute @fredlittlebread. #feelingfall #twenty2 #twenty2wallpaper #dscolor

#twenty2coloroftheweek #storm Several days of rain has us feeling blustery #shadesofgrey and our new #sisal #grasscloth in Tempest perfectly represents our vibe. Sitting pretty alongside our #wallpaper is an original floral print by @ashleywoodsonbailey, a mini @RockCenterNYC from our daughter’s collection of monuments from her travels and our trusty loupe for examining prints. We often find the underside of our ceramic collection as intriguing as the topside – anyone recognize the mark of the maker of this #vintage #midcentury vase? #twenty2 #twenty2wallpaper #grassclothwallpaper #ecofriendly #dscolor

A little lunchtime #wallpaperwednesday inspiration. Jagdfalke designed in 1910 by Josef Hoffmann as a textile, was translated in 1913 into a #blockprinted #wallpaper by Max Schmidt for the first wallpaper collection from the #WienerWerkstatte. The striking pattern features Hoffman's signature heart-shapes leaves and a captivating color palette. Thanks to Lesley Jackson for the rich inspiration found in her book "20th Century Pattern Design." #historyinspires #historicwallpaper #designinspiration
