Wallpaper for Drawing Inspiration

Remember when Mom said not to draw on the walls? No offense to Mom, but that's old news. The possibilities are endless when the writing is on the wall.

It was love at first site when we saw the Frames Wallpaper in the Land of Nod catalog, of all places. Uh, oh -- was it just a kid thing? But no! We found the Taylor and Wood Frames Wallpaper at Graham and Brown used in a variety of applications from master bedrooms to hallways to children's rooms, of course.

Any why not? The clean black and white backdrop is as inviting as a blank coloring book page. Children and adults can both be inspired to grab a marker or pencil and sketch away. It reminds us of the amazing room created by Charlie Kratzer with $10 worth of Sharpie markers and a whole lot of imagination. Charlie just needed blank walls, but the rest of us might need slightly less overwhelming, contained frames.

The application of this wallpaper is basic but the implications are not. The British artists, Chris Taylor and Craig Wood, designed a wallpaper series of 18 prints that are intentionally open to interpretation. The whole concept is to invite the homeowner to be part of the design process and enable every installation to be utterly unique.

We would love to deck out a powder room in the Frames wallpaper and invite guests to do drawings, write messages, and tack up photos. Imagine what intentional bathroom graffiti could look like. . .
How would you apply the Frames wallpaper in your home?
