Into the Gold

Ever since ferm LIVING came out with its Graphics in Nature collection last fall, I've been dying to get the Wilderness pattern up on my wall. I finally made some time last week to hang it, and I'm thrilled with the result!

The before scene.

All done!


To work the gold and white design into the mix, I picked a really dark raisin colored paint for the rest of the walls in the dining room and a light gray for the adjacent living room. The painting was a lot of work (and a lot of noise according to my not so neighborly downstairs neighbors...), but totally worth it!!!

Oh, yes. gorgeous! I love the gold bird on the blue-green wall. It's so inspiring; as I'm in the market for new and upcoming ideas AT THE MOMENT!

I'm sure you will be seeing me here again, with pics very soon!

Where did you get the light fixture, it is perfect!

Thank you! I got it at unicahome.com, I think. It's designed by Ingo Maurer. I obsessed over it for a long time and finally decided to take the plunge :)

And, we'll look forward to hearing from you again, Deborah!

Hello-I love your room! Can you tell me where you found the white sliding doors if they weren't original to the home?I'm looking for something very similar.

Thank you!

Thank you, Jennifer!

I'm so sorry, but I don't know where the doors are from and my landlord isn't sure either.

Good luck with your door hunting!
