"Galxia" wallpaper by Tres Tintas, available at Walnut Wallpaper

It's "Wallpaper Week" at Apartment Therapy, and there is an excellent post today on the history of wallpaper. I am personally obsessed with wallpaper, although I have none in my own home. (Which is to say, I have none on my walls...I do have vintage rolls I've collected over the years stashed away. I'm saving them until I find just the 100% perfect spot for them, which may or may not ever happen!) Sheila has purchased many a vintage wallpaper book on eBay, and even has some framed swatches hanging in her home, which is a very thrifty and cool way to get art on your walls, I think. I just wanted to mention L.A.'s Walnut Wallpapers in this post. I've never been to their retail store, but perusing their site is one of my guilty pleasures. They've got a vast variety of papers, and they've got them organized by color (genius) online. 

I love the drama of dark wallpaper above a blue wainscot. ("Grove Garden" wallpaper by Osbourne & Little,  at Walnut Wallpaper

Oh, Inverted...Ballet

Photo by David Allen for the New York Times 

The Smuin Ballet in San Francisco turned 8 songs from "Oh, Inverted World" into a ballet. It premiered last week, and we just heard through the grapevine that it's really good. There's a review in the New York Times here.

Big News: New Sheet Sets Are Here!

Tesserae sheet set by Plover Organic, exclusively at Anthropologie

It's very, very exciting to finally be able to share some new sheet sets with everyone!! Plover Organic has two new patterns, available *exclusively* online and through the Anthropologie catalog. The first is the Tesserae sheet set, which we based off an old foulard pattern. ("Foulards" were lightweight silk cloths that were often made into handkerchiefs in the 19th century, but the term also refers to small repeated patterns often seen in handkerchiefs, men's neckties, and more.) The second is our Falling Leaves sheet sets, which you can purchase in either gold or blue. I am so in love with these!

Fawn + Forest


We are so excited—one of our favorite online shops for kiddos, Fawn + Forest, now has our entire new collection, in baby and twin bedding, online. See it all here. And we're a Forest Find for the month, too (thanks, guys)! They offer free shipping and no sales of the many reasons I love shopping through them. Enjoy!
