diy: our favorite wallpaper 

From L:

You guys. I swoon every time I see Thibaut Tanzania wallpaper. I fantasize about using it in every room of my house: dining room, powder room, bedroom…CLOSET. But I have one problem: it’s kinda spency. I can’t bring myself to pull the trigger.

So imagine how excited I was to see this DIY on Simple Details blog for a look-alike. With just a few tweaks to a cheetah print stencil, you can paint your walls to look ALMOST EXACTLY LIKE the wallpaper of my dreams.

PSA: My husband, who owns a mold mitigation business, really likes this idea because – as a lot of folks will tell you – wallpaper can trap moisture, hide leaks, and create all manner of chaos in your home. Much better to stencil on paint walls!

View the real thing in these amazing rooms, then try your hand at the DIY!

dining room design.

The biggest news of our weekend: L (thanks to J’s eagle-eyed Facebook spotting) finally purchased the Eero Saarinen tulip table she has been dying for for YEARS. This tulip table produced by Knoll – usually upwards of $5,000 – was a gently-used STEAL at $825. We love that this mid-century design icon works with a variety of aesthetics and styles. L is pairing it with a knock-off Sputnik chandelier, fancy dinner and glassware, a classic federal sideboard (still on the wish list)…and a little chinoiserie.  Cause we love all of those things.
