The booth is officially FULL! Check out the beautiful new paintings from EMYO and Melissa Payne Baker, handmade pottery lamps from Charlie West, pretty mineral candleholders and specimens, and antiques from my latest buying trip.
Growing up in Dallas in the 1980s, marbleizing was a big trend in girls' fashion. My mom and her friends perfected the technique - once reserved primarily for paper products - and suddenly Highland Park daughters were decked head-to-toe in marbleized gear, right down to our giant hair bows and plastic shorts.
The technique is making ripples again - this time a little more tastefully - in the home design world. This pretty wallpaper is "Pheasant" by Twigs.
"Pheasant" is available in different colorways. I love the peachy shade used in this powder bath. A little bit can go a long way - look how the designer used the blue version to back bookcases.

Fabric houses are jumping on the trend, too. There are several different marbleized prints out right now. I would use one to make bright, fun pillows! These are from Old World Weavers, Highland Court and Kravet.
No one does lamps quite like Bunny Williams. Her Scarlet Lamp is a subtle way to experiment with the trend.

Or for less investment, dress your table in these fun marbleized napkins.
The design world is holding its breath for the next line of marbleized wallpaper from F. Schumacher, created by designer-to-the-stars Martyn Lawrence Bullard. His new collection debuts in February. Click here to see a sneak peek inside the January issue of Architectural Digest...
Still hunting for the holidays? These white lacquer boxes adorned with gilt antlers are the perfect gift. They're sophisticated decor for the Christmas season, but understated enough to display atop an antique chest or cocktail table year-round.
Nothing stops me in my tracks like a room finished in hand-painted Chinoiserie wallpaper. Dining rooms, powder baths, bedrooms - the material be used anywhere and is completely customizable, right down to the shade of tail feathers on the birds. Celebrities love the look, too. Here is a view inside of Aerin Lauder's dressing room...
And Tory Burch's entry, wrapped in a beautiful Gracie paper.
Be warned - wallpapering an entire room is PRICEY. I've actually never bid it myself, but you can probably buy a new car for what it would cost. A good trick to get the look more affordably is to frame a panel or two.
La Dolce Vita
The scenes - which usually depict flowers and birds - work in both traditional and modern interiors.
I just ordered a pretty pair of light blue Chinoiserie wallpaper panels and framed them for the shop. You can't tell by the photo, but each panel is HUGE - 8 feet tall by 36 inches wide. They would be so pretty hung in a dining room, an entry hall or on flanking the sides of a bed.
