Decorating with abigail*ryan Wallpaper...


This morning I was writing a piece of copy for a Northern Ireland Interiors magazine about Wallpaper trends and ideas for decorating with Wallpaper, and it got me thinking... well, it got me plotting, actually.

Since our new Wallpaper arrived, we've had big pieces of it pinned up on various walls in our home, and will soon be decorating throughout our home, ourselves. I thought I would pull together some decorating and accessorising ideas for each of our four papers, and today, I've started with Rose Flamingo.

Personally, I absolutely loves the maximalist look! I believe in collecting special pieces of art or ceramics on your travels and incorporating them, and celebrating them, in your home. I love layering colour and pattern and love clash and contrast as much as I love matchy-matchy. Pulling together a colour story is so much fun, because, let's face it, colour is so much fun! I chose these pieces today thinking how well they would fit in to my existing kitchen/diner (where we also work) and yet, help emphasise the strong aqua and vintage coral, along with the crisp white, in our Flamingo Rose Wallpaper and matching scatter Cushions!

What do you think? Is this a colour scheme you could live with... what would you add in to the mix?

Clockwise from noon: Rose Garden Cushion / Aqua Wire Baskets, Carolyn Donnelly at Dunnes / Flower Knob, Anthropologie / Fox Knob, Anthropologie / Toadstool Plate, Anthropologie / Zuiver Coral Orange Wire Stool, Achica / Teal Cast Iron Casserole, Le Creuset / Aqua gloss Storage Trolley, Ikea / Coral Latte Bowls, Anthropologie / Ercol Nesting tables, Anthropologie / Staffordshire Spaniels, Jonathan Adler / Rose Windrose Cushion / Rose Florimetric Cushion ... and of course, Rose Flamingo Wallpaper.

p.s. our cushions will be in store in early September. If you would like to pre-order, get in touch.

xo,
Abigail @ a*r

I love this color palette just as it is. In fact, I just pinned it to my Color Palettes board. I like the freshness and slightly old-fashioned charm.

This is stunning!! I want to move in immediately.

Also, I did a similar post on the AO blog on a vintage colourful kitchen and two of the pieces I used are the same as on yours... great minds ;) I really should have thought to use that wallpaper as well! xxx
