Palm Madness + House of Hackney

I guess it all began with my wanting to put some sort of leaf (probably palm) pattern wallpaper in the laundry room. I was trying to decide on a pattern when I saw the Brazilliance installed in a showroom and was convinced that was the one. 

Then I went off to London for spring break and I stopped in Liberty (like I do on every trip) and I saw this…..


It’s from a new-to-me company called House of Hackney and boy, do I love what they’re doing.

There were other sofas, pillows and accessories and all of it unbelievably beautiful. Check out their site and you’ll see what I mean.

Anyway, seeing all these upholstered pieces made me think I may actually love the Brazilliance fabric more than the wallpaper. I mean, look at this chair from Carleton Varney.….

And remember the pillows on the cover of Lonny….

So my conundrum is I want to use both the paper and the fabric but I need to choose one or the other because we don’t want a 70’s/Golden Girls situation happening…..

Don’t get me wrong, this is spectacular and fabulous but my traditional house could not possibly handle it.

Decisions, decisions…..

  1. I think you should go for fabric. This is just solely based on your “white wall” post. Of course I am totally feeling that Golden Girls moment…live on the edge you know.

    1. I guess I should have qualified my white wall post with the fact that I like pattern in smaller spaces (as is evidenced by my powder room). I hear you about the Golden Girls – I love it so much! 🙂

  2. I just found your blog, and I am hooked!!! We installed the Brazilliance wallpaper in our dining room and LOVE it! We used coral pink silk for the drapes, which really makes the paper pop. I cannot wait to see what you decide! Either way, you are going to absolutely love the Brazilliance!!
