This post was perfectly timed for Father’s Day. I want to give a shout-out to John and his partner for whipping up this amazing room for their two-year-old daughter in just four days! For the amount of cutting, wallpapering and painting involved in this room, that’s pretty impressive. It’s so bold and bright, with a glamorous fifties vibe to it — a very whimsical reinterpretation of a Kate Spade interior. Well done, John! — Kate

Time: 4 days
Basics: The wall was already painted white. I knew that wallpaper was too expensive, and I couldn’t find anything like the Kate Spade flowers. I took a picture on my cell phone of the wallpaper flowers at the Kate Spade store and then printed out the picture at home. I then went to Kinko’s and printed out larger color copies. I did three sizes of the flowers. The image didn’t need to be crystal clear, as I wanted a soft, fuzzy sort of look. So the image worked out perfectly. I then cut out all of the flowers and put them in a big pile and purchased a colored glue stick. The purple color of the glue helped me make sure I was getting all of the edges glued down. I didn’t really have a plan on how to put the flowers up; I just stepped back after I glued down each flower and made sure that a pattern was slowly making its way onto the wall. After applying each flower, I pushed down to make sure there were no air bubbles or loose edges. Any flowers that were in corners or that needed to be trimmed to fit an area, I just hand-cut and then glued on.
