cole & son, 'orchid' wallpaper

this stuff is so hot. i first saw it in sf, interior designer, caitlin moran's showhouse room. she totally killed it (in a good way mind you)
she paired it with navy blues and olivey citron greens.
when i went to track it down, i found that it comes in all of these color ways (or as they call it 'colour' ways) so pretty. i want this last one. i mean, if you're going to do wallpaper. DO the pattern and do it big.

In the first picture, the ottoman with the olive-green fabric is a ripoff of the Barcelona ottoman. (Which was orignally designed by Martha Stewart.)

Thank you. I trained my eye at the Martha Stewart Institute for Error Spotting.

Yes, I love seeing it used this way. Thanks for posting it.

Excuse me, earlier anonymous blogger, why not give attribution (correctly) for the Barcelona Ottoman lounge to Mies van der Rohe, not Martha Stewart? Even Martha looks to the Masters for inspiration.

The room is fabulous, by the way.

geneva, actually, not only did martha stewart, our lord and savior design the barcelona ottoman, but also, the glass house, the womb chair AND the saarenin tulip table. to name a few.

this is why i believe her to be, the lord and savior. oh, and she did all of these designs, originally using simple items found around her house and or, at a tag sale.

Her original Barcelona chair was fashioned from old barbecue tools and Hefty garbage bags.

really. i did not know. she's so good that way.

instead of making the sign of the cross,when we mention her name, maybe we should hold our hands in front of us, pantomiming, holding on to bars, or running a tin cup back and forth.

Martha would be a perfect Prison Matron!
