FAVORITE WALLPAPERS RIGHT NOW

a good friend of mine asked me to give her some of my favorite resources for wallpaper. she’s wanting to cover the entryway in her new home with something fun. i thought i’d share with you too…

  

cavern is the wallpaper that is used in my studio building, the unique space. (that’s our hallway to the bathrooms right above) they have a great selection of cool wallpapers here.

hygge & west’s selection is filled with gold, which i love. i chose the dots & the ferns as my top picks.

ellie cashman sure has some bold statement wallpaper in her collection. i think these large florals are so rad in that work area!

what do you think of bodie and fou’s faux wood & concrete wallpaper options? i’m curious to see those in person.

oh man i love these watercolor designs by emma hayes! very cool.

 

can’t go wrong with a vertical black and white stripe. ferm living as a great one here. the half moons are nice too. i also added some of their wall stickers in for fun. shop those here.

anthropologie has sea scapes & vivid poppies! can you imagine a bathroom with those bright flowers? i’d be into that for sure.

speaking of the sea, how about these hand drawn waves wallpaper by abigail edwards? i could see this being very cute in a little boy’s room.

for the neutral gal, i chose these graphic options in a bone color from serena & lily.

and last but not least, minakani lab. gorgeous wallpaper made in paris. that black and white option of the trees is so calming, i love it.

which one are you loving? any other wallpaper stores you want to share? -bri

WALL STENCIL

wall stencil | designlovefest

sometimes you just want to brighten up a plain white wall without a lot of fuss or hassle and wall stencils happen to be perfect for that! we partnered with our friends over at HP to celebrate the launch of its latest HP Envy Photo All-in-One 7855 printer and created a series of printable stencils that can be used to update any room in your house (they’d also make great posters too!).

the inspiration behind the design was from my love for Matisse and how i’m seeing his influence in design pop up more and more. his use of color, the organic shapes, the repetition of his designs and the scale of his paintings…all of it creates such a positive feeling and something i could stare at for hours. when i saw his work in person a few years ago in amsterdam i was so blown away.

we used the stencils to update a corner of our office, and i love how it turned out! let us know how you put the stencils to use. there are a lot of different shapes in the attached PDF, we used a variation of them but you could just use one or two if you have a smaller space or place them really close together and make it feel like wall paper.

here is what you’ll need:

• printer (we used our HP EVVY Photo All-in-One 7855)
• card stock paper
• xacto knife
• painters tape
• paint colors of choice, all of our paint is from Behr and we used matte finish.
• paint brushes
• scissors
• double sided tape

• start by printing out all of the stencils that you want to use (above). we used xacto knives for the cutting but you could also try scissors too. put the stencil on top of a piece of cardboard and cut along the edge of the designs.

• to secure the design to the wall first put double sided tape on the back of the design along the edges so that you can get a really clean line. next secure to the wall with painters tape on the edges.

• for the painting, you’ll want to be really careful along the edges and make sure that your brush isn’t holding any water so that you avoid any drips and leaking through the paper.

• let dry for 15 minutes, remove the paper and you’re done! we only did one coat of paint because the colors were really saturated but you could do two coats if needed.

MAKE IT/ WALL PLANTERS

i’m excited to be partnering with boots beauty on this DIY post. they have an amazing line of plant-based skin care products that are completely affordable and really pull their weight in the skin improvement category. some office favorites are the all bright balm (makes you look like you slept 8 hours, seriously!), the facial oil and the toner which magically doesn’t bother my sensitive skin.

in keeping with the green theme, natalie came up with this genius DIY for wall hanging planters. you can use air dry clay so no need to get crazy with ceramic throwing and you can make them at home with very few tools needed.

what you’ll need:
air dry clay (we used Crayola)
• rolling pin
• canvas about 18 x 24 inches
• exacto blade
• ceramic pin tool (available at art and craft stores)
• sandpaper
• craft or spray paint
• tissue paper or newsprint and drawing paper
• small sponge

how to make them:

• first make yourself a pattern of the shape you want your plant pocket to be. make two of the exact same shape by tracing your shape and then cut the top off of one in a nice rounded shape, that piece will serve as the front of your pocket. round and oval shapes work the best and they can be perfect or irregular, what ever you like

• roll 2 balls of clay, the size of a fist, in between a folded piece of canvas until they are about 1/4 inch in thick. note: rolling the clay on canvas will keep the clay from sticking to your work table and make it easier to pick up

• cut out each pattern piece from your flattened clay with an exacto knife (clay is surprisingly easy to cut with a sharp blade)

• roll one coil of clay long enough to go around the bottom curve of your front pattern piece taking care to taper the ends a bit

• with the pin tool make score marks along all the edges that your two pieces will meet to form your pocket

• on your front piece attach the coil to the area that you have scored. add a little water to the clay to help the coil stick to the other piece of clay, score the top of the attached coil as well

• cut a piece of drawing paper slightly smaller but in the same shape as your front pattern piece. it doesn’t need to be perfect just enough to cover the surface of the exposed clay inside the coil area. this will help keep your two clay pieces from touching when you join then and also help you keep the shape smooth

• with a sponge put a little water on the coil and the scored part of the other piece of clay

• crumple a little piece of newsprint or tissue paper and put it on the large flat piece of clay. this will help you create the shape of the pocket when you join the two pieces

• now you get to join your two pieces together! when you have them lined up so all the edges are in the right place pinch the 2 pieces together kind of like a pie crust

• with your sponge smooth all the edges and surfaces. if your edge is a little bumpy from pinching it run the pin tool along it and take off any small pieces

• shape your pocket and put in extra tissue paper if necessary to keep it propped up while drying. after the clay has dried for an hour or so you can put your last finishing touches on the pocket shape and smooth it all out one last time

• after your clay is dry (time depends on climate conditions where you are, in Southern California we find it takes a day or two) you can smooth your pocket even more with sandpaper. use a medium grit first to take down any lumps or bumps and a fine grit to smooth before painting

• we used white spray paint and colored craft paint to finish ours but you can really do anything! dots, stripes, all white, it’s up to you

• use a clear acrylic spray to seal your paint since you will probably need to water your plants, be sure to read all directions on paint dry time so your project stands the test of time.

we decided to use succulents as they require less water and still look great but the plant selection is up to you. have fun and show us what you create!

DIY / TOILET PAPER HOLDERS

DIY Toilet Paper Holder

i am VERY excited about this one. one night natalie and i were hanging around her house eating thai food, as usual, and we concepted this idea to upgrade your toilet paper holders in a stylish way. these are something everybody has in their homes, and they are very rarely given second thought when it comes to design. but why not? it’s so simple and can make a bathroom look that much cooler!

so we decided to make a little project out of it. we thought of hotels that we loved and designed TP holders based on their aesthetic. because we’re weird like that. but i truly love how this came out! i need to change the holder in my bathroom immediately. now, let’s get to the project and how you can make your own…

THE ACE HOTEL in PALM SPRINGS

supplies:

• drawer pull (ours are from anthropologie here, here, here, and here. i also love this one.)

• half inch tube or pipe cut to six inches in length, you can use brass or copper pipe, we love clear acrylic tubes because you can slip any kind of colored paper or fabric inside like you see here. plexi tubes can be found online here.

• 24 inches of leather cord, rope, twine or ribbon, whichever suits your fancy

how to:

• make loops at either end of your cord that are large enough to fit around the drawer pull easily.

• drill a hole in your wall that is just slightly smaller than the hardware on the back of the drawer pull and twist the pull into the wall to create a knob.

BRI’S FUTURE HOTEL OF HER DREAMS
if my dreams come true one day and i can design a hotel, it would be scandinavian inspired with no shortage of color…

• feed the cord through the pipe and hang both loops on the knob.

THE BEACH HOTEL in TULUM
the beach was understated luxury in a relaxed natural environment

• to replace your TP simply pull one loop off the knob and feed the cord through the TP roll. it’s as easy as that!
