3D Recycled Wallpaper



Can't commit to a paint color (or, if you're a renter, the landlord won't allow you to)? Jaime Salm’s new Paperforms are a three-dimensional textured wall panel that add both color and texture to a room. The panels are 12x12, and can be attached with double stick tape or more permanently with wallpaper paste. Paperforms come in a few different designs and colors which are whimsical as well as geometrical, adding an air of sophistication to the potentially quirky wall coverings. The colors are bright or neutral, the neutrals being my favorites as they emphasize the three-dimensional nature of the panels through shadow.

*Paperforms are made from 100% post and pre-consumer waste paper, which makes them affordable as well as environmentally friendly.

Home Infatuation modern gifts for the home

Modern-red-wreath Want to give a gift that will be in family stories for years to come? If you’re struggling to give something special, think about the Great Outdoors. As homeowners spend more time outside than in, gifts that add fashion to the patio or sunroom are not only unexpected, but will actually be used. Many homeowners consider this space an outdoor extension of their indoors. So when selecting a gift for an outdoor room, consider items that provide a function, reflect the personality of homeowners and complement their decorating style. Start a thoughtful tradition with gifts that celebrate the home.

From Andrea Evans, Interior Design Expert & Owner of In The Pink Boutique

Fall-color-trends 1.) When decorating for fall, be sure take advantage of all of the colors on the fall palette: deep reds, warm browns, pale mauves, vibrant purples, and the more traditional orange and yellow shades of pumpkins and fall vegetables.

2.) To bring charm to your entryway add golden, red, and orange maple leaves to a plain wheat wreath for your front door and plant red and orange mums in outdoor planters.

3.) Set your table and spruce up your kitchen. Create a centerpiece out of small pumpkins, maple leaves, berries, feathers, and seed pods.

4.) Use strategic fall accessories to bring elegance to each room. Place autumn berry vines in the window sills, and autumn colored throw pillows and blankets on the couch.Colorful candles, simple pictures, and wooden pumpkins give your living space a charming feel.

Bilbao-weiman 5.) Look for furniture pieces that are neutral and warm in color and fabric. Gold, brown, and mocha couches work especially well for the fall season. To create a warm, cozy feel, decorate with a few wooden furniture accents that complement the couch such as a coffee table and end tables. Only use three or four pieces in your living area to avoid clutter and keep the look contemporary. (Pictured - Bilbao from Weiman)

6.) Don’t forget candles! Carve out the center of fruits and vegetables such as apples and pumpkins to create votive holders, and use larger pumpkins for pillar candle holders. Even when not lit candles bring warmth and beauty in their season’s colors. Fall-fruit-sculpture

7.) Tuck small pumpkins, Indian corn, and apples into corners of vanities in the bathrooms and bedside tables.

8.) Tie your fall décor together by making your home smell like fall. Boil three cups of water, and reduce to a simmer. Add four cinnamon sticks, one teaspoon vanilla extract, two teaspoons of ground cinnamon, half a teaspoon of nutmeg and slices of oranges and apples. Allow to steep for thirty minutes, remove from heat, and let the fragrance fill the air!
