In an effort to get our warehouse clean and organized for 2009, we've put most of our wall stickers (Bamboo, Branches, Cherry Tree, Flora, Flower Field, Berry Black, Birds, Hexagon and Fallen Leaves) and many of our Collection 2 wallpapers on sale for 60% off. We've taken to calling putting wallpaper up a "recession remodel" - you may not be able to "completely re-do" your home, but you'll be surprised how "completely re-done" wallpaper can make it feel. If you've been thinking about adding interest to the living room, tackling that wall in the bedroom or finally giving yourself a boutique-like walk in closet, now is the time to do it. Quantities are very limited and please note that all sales are final.

Even though I live in SF now, we've been fortunate to remain close, and recently, I helped Kara with a couple idea for her walls to make over her loft bedroom. With ferm LIVING's forest flower in dusty green and Benjamin Moore's baby fawn, she created a sophisticated, and calming space. I love how the natural element in the wallpaper complements the exposed brick. Just the right amount of girliness and ruggedness. Thanks so much for sharing your pictures Kara. It looks beautiful! See you in a couple weeks!

Jesper and Betina just sent us these fun pictures of their new power pole wall sticker. Betina mentioned that they were able to put it up together without killing one another... or even a harsh word :) They are really excited about what a bold statement it makes in their living room. We think it looks great too, especially with their other modern furniture and accessories. One thing they discovered: it is a lot easier to hang if you start with the bottom wire and work your way to the top. Thank you so much for the tip and for sharing these pictures with us!

Gloria, at Sash and Sugar, just sent us these lovely pictures of her newly remodeled bathroom. We love her use of the berry black wall sticker to add a natural element into the mix of modern fixtures. I hadn't thought of using a tea towel as a guest towel, but I think the love birds towel in the bathroom is so charming! In fact, I'm off to swap out my bathroom hand towel right now...
Thank you so much, Gloria, for sharing these pictures with us!

I've been a big fan of Amy Tavern's jewelry for quite some time. Her pieces are modern and feminine and can be worn with jeans and a t-shirt which is a requirement for any jewelry I invest in these days. I just got her e-newsletter featuring this lovely little necklace which uses vintage flocked wallpaper. I wonder what a fermLIVING necklace would look like?

Our downstairs bathroom is undoubtedly one of the most used parts of our house. Between kids running in for "pit stops," my husband's odd but considerate habit of going to the bathroom downstairs early in the morning so the noise of the flush doesn't wake the kids, and all the mom-mandated hand washing before meals, it seems as though it's always occupied. And one thing NONE of my boys can remember is to close the door when they leave. So I figured if the door was going to be left open, why fight it? Now, instead of feeling annoyed when I see the door left open AGAIN, I catch a glimpse of some Ribbed wallpaper and the annoyance melts away.
Christiana and I did the wallpaper in this room in seemingly record time - and luckily the walls were already a lovely grey-blue-green shade.
All that's left now is finding the perfect little knob for the medicine cabinet.
Here are a few I've seen at Anthropologie, but I haven't found one that's just right yet. Suggestions welcome!
