Wallpaper

Though I live in a rental, and can’t go wild decorating quite yet, I can’t wait to join in the return of wallpaper. There are so many beautiful options out there nowadays, for any room—a moonlit nursery, graphic closet, a blooming entry, or perhaps a little faux-architectural detail or a stunning accent wall. Can you imagine a Dufy-papered room??

Wedding Palette

Raoul Dufy
The Opera, Paris, early 1930s
Gouache on paper

I am marrying a beyond wonderful guy this August, and it’s finally starting to sink in that the big day is approaching. The past year has been pretty crazy with wedding planning, and I’ve found it’s nice to have one inspiring image to go back to, in making sure the entire look and feeling of our day comes together. From the start, I immediately choose Dufy’s The Opera, Paris as inspiration for our color palette, a painting which I fell in love with while working as a curatorial intern at The Phillips Collection in D.C.
