Ever wonder what our editors are obsessing over? This week, some of the folks behind Apartment Therapy share their favorite finds, including a wallpaper/washi tape hybrid, the hot new clothing line from your fave plus size fashion bloggers, and more.
Suzonne Stirling's "Paper Garden": Though I've proudly kept many green-leafed plants alive for multiple years in a row, how to grow beautiful blooms remains a mystery to me. Thankfully it looks like I might not have to? I came across New Orleans-based stylist Suzonne Stirling's paper flowers and I'm blown away. Shaping paper into flowers that will never wilt isn't a new craft, but I've never seen them done so well. I'm totally fooled! Luckily for New Orleans-based me, she's teaching a workshop this month. — Adrienne Breaux, House Tour Editor
A Living Room With a Perfect Mix of Old and New: I've always been a firm believer that no room should feel like every last piece in it came from the same source, hence why I love the mix (of high/low, of old/new). This week while surfing through my blogroll, I stumbled upon this space on SF Girl by Bay and it stopped me in my tracks. The ornate moldings, chandelier and fireplace are perfect character-filled counterpoints to the super modern furnishings and art. Every last image from this home is going on my Pinterest board for future inspiration! — Arlyn Hernandez, Design Editor
Offset Wallpaper Tape from Custhom: I'm always on the lookout for temporary adhesive products that work well for renters, and this material has a lot of promise. It's like washi tape meets wallpaper. Apply the self-adhesive strips to create one-of-a-kind graphic patterns in pretty colorways (like the dusty pink and blue above). Try it on walls, cabinets, furniture, or any flat surface. Because it's removable and repositionable, it's a no fail way to add personality to your apartment. — Dabney Frake, Projects Editor
Tile Bathroom by Elizabeth Roberts: As a self-confessed tile addict, I can't help but be a little obsessed with this bathroom, in a Prospect heights townhouse designed by Elizabeth Roberts. The abstract shapes of the cement wall tile evoke Bauhaus textiles, while the white fixtures are conspicuously space-agey, giving the bathroom the feel of existing in some otherworld, outside of time. — Nancy Mitchell, Senior Writer
Picture Books Blogger website and Instagram: Sarah Yewman, a "self-confessed picture book geek", must be my children's book soulmate as I love every book that she chooses to feature. If you're a parent, follow her for fresh ideas to bring home from the library or book store. If you're are a fan of illustration, her feed is a visual treat that will no doubt lead you to discover new artists. —Carrie McBride, Managing Editor
Premme: Give it up for the big girls! On Tuesday, plus size style bloggers Nicolette Mason and Gabi Gregg launched their very first collection for their new fashion line, Premme (and fans broke the site trying to scoop it up). I'm loving their not-basic basics and wow pieces that don't require you to scroll through five pages of a brands' site to find "the one cool thing." Premme stocks sizes 12-30 and prices range from $30 to $89.— Tara Bellucci, News & Culture Editor
