My Latest Obsession

In the spirit of procrastination, I have decided I need to redo our powder room. In light of this epiphany I feel compelled to drop the 101 things I should be doing. Most important of all is restocking our web shop with spring goodness which I have been promising myself and you for days now.

It all began innnocently enough as many of these things do: the siren's call of an Anthropologie catalog.
When I see something I love I obsess about it until I make it mine. Sometimes I wait too long and never acquire the item and it haunts, no better said tortures me, for years later. (Like the carved mahogany picture frame in Printemps, Paris 2001. But I digress...)
I have coveted this gorgeous stuff for weeks now. Truth be told, it seems like lifetimes. And it was on sale! (Wallpaper is not enough of a word to describe this luciousness.)
Needless to say me being moi, I could not resist this illicit seduction. I even love the catalog description: "Step back in time with Felix Spicer's hand printed wallpaper, filled with romantic silhouettes found in a 19th century French pattern book of hair adornments." The designer calls his chocolate brown and magenta: Belle/Blush
This is Felix Spicer's first textile creation. An upholsterer by trade, I reckon he is someone to watch out for.

Now I just need the patience necessary for the postman to come. Next I need to figure out how to hang the stuff. Now, what about towels. And don't worry Vie Chaotique is going to have it's spring wares any day now.

Peinetas! How lovely. I'd go for it too if I didn't know myself well enough to admit that I will NEVER hang wall paper. It is beautiful though. Take photos of the finished powder room. I want to see.
