Obsession Du Jour: Wallpapered Furniture

The other night, while searching for something entirely unrelated,  I came 
across the most amazing thing:
 Wallpapered Furniture!
This literally made my heart skip a beat. I have only slightly begun to talk about my love of wallpaper here.  But, trust me when I tell you, there are some wallpapers that I literally just dream about, even though I have run out of walls.
And that is precisely why I was so excited to come across the Bryonie Porter website. Based out of England, this charming company specializes in wallpapering furniture. Take a look at some of their adorable creations:



It was this last one, that really sent me over the moon. I have an old vanity, in need of some TLC, and I have been completely infatuated with Osbourne & Little’s gold Asuka print, for quite some time.
It caught my eye when Kate Spade used it in her ad campaign:
And, then again, when the New York Post did a feature spread on the apartment 
of Michelle Smith of Milly.
The appeal of this wallpaper lies in the nostalgic vibe it gives off, while still remaining thoroughly fresh and modern. Ironically enough, just like the Kate Spade and Milly fashion labels.


I loved it here too, when Palmer Weiss used it in this powder room. Many blogs have covered this,  but I first spotted it here, on the Diane James Home site, when I was naturally looking for something else…entirely unrelated!

    These are great images! I was just asking myself if I could wallpaper the desk in Cory's office for a bit of change. Though I should probably be asking HIM that question…

    Kate Spade is the best at styling and anything that copies her design is great in my book 🙂

  7. Now I love you, because you love wallpaper too!

    The papers these days are exceptional. I have to restrain myself, from not taking down perfectly good paper to try something new.

    I covered the top of an end table once, but a whole dresser, as shown above, yeah that will make your heart skip a beat!!!
