Friend Feature  Stairwell Before & After with Julia Rothman Wallpaper

Hello Friends! I am so excited to show off my new stairwell!  I found this wallpaper by artist Julia Rothman about two years ago, and after collecting rolls of it for birthdays and Christmas, it is finally finished!


In our old house, the hallways and stairwells flow together, so I decided to keep the wallpaper just in the stairwell “chute” since it is hard to find an ending place.  It really feels like you are ascending into the sky as you go up the stairs, and you catch just a glimpse of it from below that piques your curiosity.   (more…)  

Inspiration  Wonderful Wallpaper & My Search for Stairwell Revival

This summer I am making a few small changes to my house that I hope will have a big impact.  It has been 9 years since we bought our old Victorian house (circa 1905) and we have not done much besides maintenance since our initial rehab.  Things are looking a little tired, and I am looking for a refresh!  In my search for wallpaper for our front hall staircase, I fell in love with some amazing designers!


The first thing I did was summon my wallpaper collection on Pinterest.  Here are some of my favorite wallpaper designers who are doing interesting and very unique work.  I really love designs that show the artist’s hand and feel like a work of art—the way art deco designs and Indian block printing allow you to feel the direct nature of the making.
