In case you are not familiar with this excellent company, they have been around since 1946, collaborating with stellar designers to create unique wallpaper designs that are not for the meek. Here is just a small sample of the variety available from Graham and Brown.
Jubilee is for those of you who long for London; this jolly good paper is full of 1950s icons from the fair city.
Trippy has become an icon on its own, a favorite of artistic directors and set designers. It has shown up on period movies and TV shows from the sixties, seventies and eighties. It’s funky print can bring big retro style to any room of the house. Cover everything from all the walls to the ceiling, or go more subtle with just one accent wall.
Script is full of words rendered in a lovely cursive,on a paper that mimics the patina of concrete. Think of it as calligraphy meets graffiti.
Steve Leung Jiao will bring a climbing botanical garden into your home, flickering with subtle metallic flecks. By the way, Graham and Brown has all sorts of botanical designs, from bold and modern to something straight out of a sweet English country home.
Contour Spa gives a geometric look that works well with styles from mid-century modern to contemporary to eclectic.

My DVR has been stacking up with the Zooey Deschanel show New Girl. I finally caught up this weekend. It’s basically stupid funny, which we can all use a little of now and then. Anyway, the flashback to her youth totally cracked me up. While fretting about an upcoming date with that guy who is known as “that guy who was a Mac on the Apple commercials who used to date Drew Barrymore,” Jess laments to her friend “everything I know about sex I know from Spencer and the Clinton impeachment trial.”
We flash back to Jess as a tween, glued to her portable radio and tantalized during the 1999 trials in her girlhood room.
Afraid she’s been busted by her mom, she hurls the radio and replies “Mom?!?!?!? I’m not listening to NPR!”
However, the plot is beside the point. The star of this scene is that fabulous wallpaper. It’s fun, flirty, floral, a little retro-yet modern, pink and orange…what else could you want in a fun and eclectic wallpaper for a girl’s room? It’s Momento by Amy Butler for Graham and Brown. Yeah. We got that. What’s amazing is that it’s totally groovy in a retro mid-modern dining room, lounge, hallway, what have you – super versatile:
Are there any stylish TV sets you’ve been admiring lately? I can’t think of any that have knocked my socks off since Mad Men began. I had high hopes for Pan Am but they don’t really compare.

Thanks so much to Flickr member The beauty is in the details for adding pictures of her lounge to our Fresh New Spaces Group. It is a true lounge; don’t you want to curl up on that couch and watch some trashy shows on television, or sit with a bunch of friends and enjoy some cocktails?
The wallpaper adds vibrant energy to the room. It’s Sanderson Dandelion Clocks
Dandelion Clocks also make an appearance in the dining room. I don’t know about you, but I’m jealous!
