Colorful Fridays: wallpaper envy

March 19, 2010

Hello and a happiest of fridays to you! For this week’s color series, I want to share some a few brilliant wallpaper designs.

It took me awhile to warm up to the idea of wallpaper — I used to think that it was something only found in older houses, usually in some terrible floral design. But I’ve come to realize that there are many designers out there creating simple yet sophisticated patterns that can fit almost any decor. I’m currently partial to Madison & Grow’s collection.

One of the reasons I love Madison & Grow is their straightforward commitment to the environment. They use fiber that is FSC certified and meets the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI), their mill’s paper fibers are reclaimed and composted or turned into animal bedding and the papers are silkscreened using a water based ink. Read more about their specifications here.

Here are some images from their collections (also be sure to check out the names of each!):
