My favorite wallpapers (right now!)

A friend recently asked if i could do a post on my favorite wallpapers at the moment as she's thinking of papering one of the walls in her study. Lets kick it off with my all time favortite from Fromental! Not to mention it also has my favorite pendant light of the moment by Tom Dixon...sigh! I want to just move into this room (hello timber table, orchids & floating stairs..ok im going off topic...)

Now...I have the perfect blog post to read for anyone whos thinking of papering a wall! Viv over at Ish & Chi did just this in her own study & did a FANTASTIC step by step post on how to hang wallpaper yourself! Here is her end result - ill sure be having a go myself one day after seeing how well it turned out!

Viv used this paper from Harlequin called 'Passion' which can be bought from Australian ebay seller Decorsupplies.

Catherine Martin, Baz Lurhmans right hand woman & cotume designer, has done a fantastic range for Porters Paints love all of them! This one called 'Sparrow' is divine

Catherine Martin Eucalyptus

Catherine Martin Lace

Both the one & only Kelly Wearstler Imperial Trellis. Pretty sure this is available from Complete Pad in Sydney or try contacting Kelly Green!

All of the papers below are from 
Each roll of wallpaper is designed in Brooklyn, NY and screen printed in Chicago. Im sure you can get it shipped or source it in Australia - does anyone know?
I love the bohemian vibe of this one called 'Nethercote'

This gorgeous wallpaper called 'Petal Pusher' was designed by Joy Cho from the blog  Oh Joy!

Now i really love this one named 'Daydream' - especially in this colourway!
Infact id love this for the wall behind our bed...hmmmmm...and would tie in with our white & tiffany blue colourscheme we have going...

There are a million choices over at Graham & Brown including these by Amy Butler
The one on the right is called 'Field Poppies' & also comes in this colourway called Moss which i think is divine.

And last but not least, you really cant go past pretty much anything from Signature Prints
