This weekend, someone asked me an interesting question at my Formspring account: If you could do anything to your home with an unlimited budget, but could only do one thing, what would it be and why? My first thought was “floors!” but then I imagined how nice it would be to knock out the walls between our railroad-style rooms so we had more open space and natural light. That ended up being my final answer, but I spent the rest of the day thinking about what I would do with all those walls. After daydreaming about different options, I settled on wanting an entire wall covered in scrap wood, like the walls of one of my favorite floral shops, Saipua.
I’ve always loved that cabin feel for an interior space, but I can’t really see myself installing all that wood on my own. I can, however, see myself installing this beautiful wallpaper from Piet Hein Eek that mimics the look perfectly. It may not have the full dimensionality of real scrap wood, but Piet’s faux-wood wallpaper has the same warm, rustic feel that wood brings to a room. You can order a 30-foot roll of Piet’s wallpaper right here (in six different styles) for $226. It’s a bit on the pricey side, but it would be perfect for a small space or — my favorite — as wallpaper in the interior of a closet. (Thanks, Annetje, for the tip!) xo, grace
