when it comes to decorating your home… 06.20.2013

When looking for pieces for your home, we feel like there’s no reason to go conservative! Why not have a little fun with home decor? Ya know, not everything needs to be neutral colors! We say, go bold or go home! We rounded up a few colorful pieces to add just that touch of fun that you’re looking for!

Lisa Congdon for Hygge & West wallpaper 11.02.2012

Let’s face it, we are long time fans of both Lisa Congdon AND Hygge & West wallpaper, so when this rad collaboration came about, there’s nothing for us not to love! How great would this paper look in an entryway? Ooh…or a bathroom! It’s got personality and character, but it’s not too overwhelming! Hygge & West actually just released a few new collections and really, they are all amazing! We have to admit, we’re feeling a wee bit jealous of these designers getting to have their patterns on wallpaper–such a dream!!!
