Animal House

I've got a little obsession with animal wallpaper lately.  Maybe its because I used it on my mid-term project, or maybe its the fact that I cant actually have wallpaper in my rental apartment, but either way I'm a big fan!


It all started with this lovely Cole & Son Tropical Bird paper, in that blue/green colorway on the right to be exact. I used it on the ceiling in my mid-term family room and I LOVE how it pulled the whole room together.


Staying in the bird category, this is another lovely Julia Rothman wallpaper that we've all seen used on the ceiling in a lovely nursery

This fun ostrich paper is eco-friendly, which is probably why Michelle Adams chose to use it in her own apartment

I posted about this Brunschwig & Fils frog paper before, I'm still totally smitten with it

I love the colorways this Cole & Son Flamingo paper comes in


What a fun bathroom!

This Scalamandre Zebra paper is nothing new, but I still love it and would use it in my own home in a heartbeat.

This Thibaut Cheetah paper is super fun- Furbish just started carrying it too, so its super easy to get now.

I fell in love with these doggies when Erica from Urban Grace updated a dated green tile bathroom with this Best in Show paper.   

Seriously, it looks like that green tile was just installed- I love this bathroom.

Another amazing bathroom with the Best in Show paper is from Bailey from Peppermint Bliss.

Last but not least is an awesome elephant pagoda wallpaper from my favorite designer, Katie Ridder.

She used it in the entryway at the Kips Bay 2010 Showhouse.

(PS- if you dont have Katie Ridder Rooms yet, go get it now! I promise you won't regret it)



Now I just need a house big enough so I can use them all.  Ok, maybe just a few.  But for real, I love every single one!

So which one is your favorite?

I just pinned a wall gallery that was done with all black and white animal silhouettes, it was quite stunning. You could do something like that in your apartment and then take it with you when you move, kathysue

Love all of these--but personally I'm SYING to use the Nina Campbell paper for O&L with the swans. I keep thinking it's called Swan's Way, but I must be thinking about Proust.

Fun roundup!

Have you ever been to upstairs on the square in Harvard sq? They have that scalamandre zebra wall paper in HOT PINK. It's insane.

The zebras are my favorite!! I hate renting and not being able to paint or wallpaper. I've been looking for some cool wall decals

Love your blog!

Love the mirror in the zebra bathroom by Massucco Warner Miller and I just have to say that I got the same exact mirror at a local flea market and I'm just very excited to see it in your site! I put mine above the fireplace and it looks fab! I also loooove the nursery!
