Enchanted Gypsy
I stumbled upon Princes and Crows during one of my late night internet surfing sessions and was immediately drawn to the firms exquisite wallpaper collection. Designed by Parisian Artist Alix Soubiran, the stunning line of wallpaper reflects her passion for travel and European aesthetic.  I'm particularly drawn to the beautiful Moorish details and vibrant colors of her Bodrum wallpaper, which makes me wistful to return to Istanbul and the seaside resort town of Bodrum.  The collection's palette is soft and colorful; antique gold, calm grey, powdery blues and saturated browns. On my wish list- the delicate Enchanted Gypsy wallpaper which I would use in a dining room with touches of gold and robin's egg blue. (I'll take the cute dog too!)

Bodrum Blue, named for the fantastic Turkish seaside resort is splendid in brilliant turquoise. I am definitely suffering from a serious case of wanderlust!

Just love the wallpaper designs! Oh the things I would do with even just a scrap or two of those!! :)

So glad you stopped by -- you just missed a post I was working on (and have now published) when you commented. :)

Oh, and its nice to know I'm not the only late, late night surfer. It's when I get so much of my browsing done!

Have a wonderful week!

Really love this wallpaper. It would look great in so many rooms. I've been itching to do something with wallpaper in my dining room. This just might be it. Thank you!

so pleased I took a break from the moving to pop over, I just adore the paper images as they fit really well with the look I am going to try to achieve in the new house.

Looking forward to seeing your guest post on my blog soon, hope you are well.

Movers here today...ah the glory of drama!
All the best, Coryanne
