This one just kills me! A new one from bryonie porter, the fabulous British wallpapered furniture company:
|See the legs? it is a dresser, leftover scrapes of fabulous wallpapers, can you identify them? I can most of them.|
I always wanted to do paper on furniture and then I saw this stuff a year ago and it just shut me down. It is so outrageously and perfectly executed that anything anyone else does looks like crap. Don't get me wrong. The top, some panels, drawer fronts, interiors, all that is fine. I can do it and love it. And I urge my readers to do it! But beyond that, there is a standard now and this is it:
|LOOK at that alignment on every part of the piece|
Can you imagine the exact cuts, placement, alignment, gluing, and finishing required. All those edges have to be flat flat flat even if it is wrapped around the edges which I doubt. High end expensive wall paper is not thin flimsy stuff. It is not forgiving. You need a new blade for each piece you trim. Try wrapping it around a corner. You want to shoot yourself.
|What else could you possibly need in a bedroom other then this, a big round mirror above and some La Perla?|
As you will see from their site Bryonie has a handful of new reproductions pieces you buy and then pick out your own paper. Of course they do specials orders.
PS: I know Bryonie has been around the blogs for awhile now. Tough. Look at this gorgeousness again.
PPS: I apologize for not posting more and posting consistently. And I don't mean to use work as an excuse but it is a GIANT excuse. I would rather be redoing and spending time here so come back please.
PPPS: Your comments mean so much to me. XXXXOOOOO
