Here at HGTV, we get to know each other’s design taste and sensibilities pretty well, which explains why every so often I will get an email like the one I got from my co-worker Marianne yesterday, which said: “My fellow wallpaper loving friend, have you seen this?” The link she included sent me to Minneapolis-based screen printer Kick.Stand.Press’ website, or more specifically, to this gorgeous Organic Compounds wallpaper.
As a wallpaper hound, I tend to gravitate toward really graphic prints or cheeky twists on classic patterns, but I love the simplicity of this paper’s basic shapes and color palette. (And wouldn’t it look whimsical behind the bench of my dreams in my fantasy vestibule?) I know there are some wallpaper haters out there, but also consider that there are tons more uses for wallpaper than simply jazzing up a wall. For instance, you can cover an old vanity, or fake a tile backsplash with it. You can frame it, make gift tags and bookmarks out of it, or cover tin canisters with it. (There’s a great book, Wallpaper Projects, that has tons more crafty ideas like this, too! Check it out.) While there isn’t a good wall for Organic Compounds in my apartment at the moment, I do have tons of old books and journals that I’d love to cover with this stunner.
