Wallpaper Wednesday

May 8, 2013

I recently listed my condo for sale in preparation for a move I’ll be making to a new one that’s still under construction.

New Condo

Not wanting to leave things till the last moment, I decided to list with a relator months in advance and prior to a confirmed possession date just in case it took a while to receive an offer and close the sale.

And with 1 day on the market and 1 showing, the place I’ve called home for the last 7 years has been sold!

And what will I miss most?

My wallpaper!

Cole&Son

While on a trip to Europe I found myself drooling over the enchanted forest in a boutique hotel.

Clean and modern, I knew I had to take what I saw home with me and redesign my guest room.

However, finding the wallpaper was no easy task.

The vendor, Cole & Son, located overseas was the solo carrier of the paper.

So after a ridiculously laboured process, my paper was on its way.

When it arrived I squealed like a 12 year old getting a pony for her birthday; the paper was perfect!

And with the services of an amazing wallpaper installer, I had finally created the modern forest I had coveted in London!

Sadly what has been the back drop for so many of my personal photo shoots will now be coming to an end.

And now, for the next 4-6 months, homeless Fab will be using the alley he’ll be living in as the new backdrop.

Dear Fancy Wallpaper, I’ll miss you!
