Dreaming of Anna French Wallpaper
You're going to love this... I was reading Apartment Therapy this morning and my chin hit my desk the second I laid eyes on a post showing Anna French wallpaper from the UK (now available in the U.S. by wallpaper manufacturer Thibaut). Anna's papers use mold-resistant, vinyl-free papers with green, non-solvent, water-based inks. I love vinyl-free wallpaper, especially with my crazy allergies. Are these not the most charming prints ever?
Amazing. I just did a happy dance in my chair... not because I'll ever actually own them but due to how much they REALLY appeal to my southern upbringing. I've always dreamed of having a home with wallpaper like this, wallpaper that is so typical of an old southern home. Aw. Lovely. The Wild Flora collection is mind blowing (and I'm sure also quite wallet shrinking). Just look at the cabinet below stuffed with these papers, what a gorgeous photo. And don't miss the blue toile in a shade of blue that is very current bringing toile into the here and now.
I admire how girly these patterns are, they feel like something out of an old movie. They also have this Marie Antoinette vibe. I could wear pretty dresses daily in a home decked out with papers like these... Big fluffy dresses and peep toe shoes. I think Amy Adams from Enchanted would fit nicely in a home like this one, complete with her animal friends and feather duster. :)
