Wallpaper we love


I'm so glad wallpaper is back! Just ran across this new wallpaper in Architectural Digest called Mahandi from Carolyn Ray.

The flurry of Ginkgo leaves is fascinating. It is shown in the "pagoda" color, which is a soothing blend of gold, gray and bronze. It is inspired by golden monks' robes and reddish Burmese roads.

I'm already thinking of all the wonderful places it could go. For fun, I picked out some of our fabulous pieces from Tonic Home and placed them against the wallpaper, just to get a feel for how it would look. Take a look below.

How about the Rittenhouse Pendant in a room with this wallpaper? Or the Vivien Mirrored Desk anchored by our pair of Ceramic Foo Dogs? What a refreshingly modern take on a theme that's been around for hundreds of years!
