I love this house!

I am so inspired by the colours and objects in this house. What a wonderful sense of style! The patchwork wall made up of vintage wallpaper is probably my favourite! This would be a wonderful way to jazz up a wall if you have stashes of odd-sized pretty paper and fabric at home. You can even try gluing the pieces on the wall like what they did in this project.

I am in love with that bookcase. Any idea where it's from? We're probably moving to a small apt in Brooklyn and need to get a better bookcase. The one pictured is so clean and makes the books look neat and organized.
