The Lotus

When Farrow & Ball came out with The Lotus print wallpaper, it was love at first sight. I'm helping my sister decorate her new condo and when I suggested this paper for her powder room she wasn't really feeling it, I think she called it 'old lady'.  Huh? I just don't get it, I'm absolutely smitten with the oversized floral print.  I'm hoping this post changes her mind!

Here it is, looking lovely, in Ryan Korban's masculine and moody Soho kitchen, a colorful den by Christina Murphy and a welcoming Rachel Halvorson-designed entry.  Great, right?  It's quite possibly my favorite wallpaper pattern of all time.  Bold statement, I know but I love it's versatility.  The dark colors are bold and graphic while the softer shades add a subtle depth to the walls. So, Lauren, are you convinced?

What's your favorite wallpaper?

  6. Beautiful! I love the design but I think I'm too afraid of the boldness of the first two, although i really love the colors too. I'll have to go with #4 as my favorite, still with the design but a bit more subtle.

  7. LOVE that wallpaper. But those colorways are so tame. My sister-in-law used the green and gold (I think) on a massive wall in her vaulted ceiling living room and it was so incredible. Not old lady at all - very bohemian. She has since moved, but I still dream about that paper in that room!

  8. I love it in the dark color. IT's also Ryan Korban's home so I'm a little biased. xox
