Fornasetti Inspiration


I have a special little client who's room has been neglected for a few years now. I probably haven't really focused on her room since she was a new baby and I hand painted a french script on her walls and designed her custom crib. Yes, she's my little Bela, and her room is a hodge podge of randomness.

She's into all things Parisian of course and like most teenagers, she has a fondness for all things furry and snuggly. She has a carved, french bed, so I need to find a way to make the room look current and sophisticated, yet fun and youthful. Starting with the walls, I was immediately convinced I wanted to use Fornasetti's Nuvolette wallpaper.


I just love this paper. In a nursery, it would be so great in an all white room 
with a great brass crib!


But. since she's no longer a baby, I can skip the crib obsession.
I'm thinking gilded frames or a large mirror.


With pops of color.





 But the more I explore, the more I am absolutely loving these large wall murals.


More Fornasetti...



Pixers has some fun options. 

She'll probably want this one...

Anthropologie has some fabulous wallpapers. I love these whimsical sketches.


My absolute favorite is this trompe l'oeil effect on the walls of La Maison de Champs Elysees by Martin Margiela. His work is so fabulous.


I'm thinking this trompe l'oeil door is going to work itself in somewhere. 


We'll see how things go after I consult with my boss. She's my pickiest client. ;)
