Wallpaper Hack

By gregorie

Last year at the Atlanta Market I saw this incredible wallpaper in the Worlds Away showroom. My entire house is painted white but I was looking for something to spice up the foyer. I knew right away I wanted this look…



Wallpaper can be a big investment and commitment and since I was afraid I wouldn’t like it forever I decided to call my friend, Melanie, who does all types of creative wall paintings and faux finishes. She mocked up a sample and I loved how it was a little less bold…


Melanie and her daughter knocked it out in a day and a half. I couldn’t be more thrilled! And the best part is, if I ever grow tired of it I can easily paint over it. Here is my foyer today…


If you would like to learn more or connect with Melanie just give us a call or stop on by the studio.


Market Highlights

By Christa Sorauf

We’re back from the High Point Market overflowing with new inspiration and so excited to get into the studio so we can get busy designing and painting. We’re incorporating the trends we found below with exciting new items coming to the studio. Here’s some highlights from our trip…


I’m in the middle of redecorating my living room with a very graphic black and white approach and apparently I’m right on trend because we saw black and white all over the market, starting with this amazing love seat from Emporium Home…


And this black and white wall with the pop of an orange lacquer desk…


And these amazing headdresses coming to the studio…



Another trend we saw is animal print everywhere does it really ever go “out of style”? Fell in love with these leopard chairs by Tobi Fairley for CR Laine and we recently upcycled ones in a very similar fashion…

Leopard Chairs

And this chair from Tobi’s collection is right on trend with black and white and animal print…



We also spotted big, beautiful and bright abstracts and we’ll be painting new originals…



And brass is still everywhere like these super fun hands from Noir, after all who doesn’t need a helping hand now and then?


If you see something you like or want to incorporate these trends into your home, just give us a call or stop by our studio. We’ll soon be hosting an Open House with our fab new finds so stay tuned!
