Wallpaper Resource

Monday, June 11, 2012

I'm not even sure how I got there, but a few weeks ago I came across Sidney Harbour Paints and got completely lost in their wallpaper selections. Sydney Harbour Paint Company is based in Australia, but I gather from their website that they have a location in California, too. Most of the papers I saw were nature-themed  with a modern attitude.  All were gorgeous and I wanted to use each and every one of them!  

This fresh floral is called "Spring" and it's from Bowie Wong's collection,.

The charming "Round and Round the Garden" is from Anna Spiro's collection.  I'd love to see this in a kitchen.

Of all of the designers collections, my favorite was by Catherine Martin.  Most of her patterns featured birds in a very bold and modern way. The pattern below is called "Pheasant" , and it's shown here in Chocolate.

Also from Catherine Martin's collection is "Lyre Bird".

And Catherine Martin's "Cockatoo"

Here is"Dandelion". The scale of the print and the neutral tones make this botanical print feel current.

"Passion Flower" in pink

Ducks have come a long way since the 80's. This is "Marjorie Duck" by Bholu, 
All images above from Sydney Harbour Paint Company.

I LOVE these! Catherine's bird papers are just amazing, I love two-tone papers, they're less distracting and in your face, and far more classic, IMHO. And... you know I love the Dandelion paper!

So beautiful, Kim! I am in love with the chocolate, although they are all beautiful. I will have to vista this designer's work.
Thank you so much for sharing! Headed over.

I am so in love with Round and Round the Garden! Would be a contender for my in-the-works nursery if I could find it locally!

Beautiful wallpapers. I love "Cockatoo". I am slowly getting back on the wallpaper train, after finally removing every shred of it from my home. It will still be a while before I put any up, but the new designs out are so sophisticated and elegant! Have a good week.

I like several of those. I was thinking about papering the inside of a closet or two but I never seem to find the time.

Love the blue and white one you suggested for a kitchen. I could see that paper in a child's room, it would be equally appropriate in a nursery or an older child's space.

I have been really into wallpaper lately. My favorites are the blue and white one and the pink.

Thanks for the great resource! I love the Anna Spiro one... I'm scared of birds, so can't see myself living with any of the others!!! ha!

Love these! My favorite are the bird papers. They're very whimsical and fun, yet sophisticated. I am really drawn to the deep, rich colors of the Cockatoo. I can see it being used in a study.

I love the birds too. The lyrebird paper is so graphic...gorgeous!

Fran said...

Pretty!! I like the Lyre Bird and could see that in a dining room.

I love the blue and white one of course, but the abstract birds ones are awesome too!
