Good morning everybody! I hope all my fellow Canadians are enjoying the Thanksgiving long weekend. Happy Turkey day!
Do you guys know Meredith Heron? She’s an amazing designer here in Toronto (she also recently spoke at BlogPodium) and she’s one designer whom I’d love to shadow for a few days – the pictures she posts on Instagram of the fabrics and finishes she’s mulling over? Amazing.
Anyways, about a month ago Meredith tweeted about a giveaway she was going to have later that week on her blog and naturally I responded:
It turns out the giveaway was for 2 double rolls of Thibaut’s Etosha wallpaper, and as amazing as that is, what’s crazier is I won!! Woot! The lovely people at Thibaut have sent me a sample of each of the five colours the paper is available in so now I need to pick one. I’ve decided that I’m going to use it in my bedroom, and I think I’m just going to do the one wall behind my bed, but that’s as far as I’ve gotten in the decision making process.
Etosha is quite a bold pattern which is a bit of a departure for me, but after poking around the internet and finding some lovely spaces in which the paper has been used I’m excited to see it in my place.
(Meredith Heron has also used it a couple of times – this post from her blog shows a recent project).
Here’s what I’m working with (apologies for the unmade bed – it was laundry day yesterday) :
The available colours are black, green, beige, grey and pearl. You can’t tell from the picture but the pearl has a bit of silver metallic shine to it. I don’t think the black or the green are a good fit, but I’m still undecided on which of the other three is my favourite. My eventual plan is to get a new headboard in a rich green, but for now the one I’ve got will stay. What do you think – which colour is your favourite? Which should I choose? Would you ever use the black one?
