• Tell Your Friends

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.

    I'm just really shooting for the stars. My name is Maurice Marbury. I have never really made my mother proud of me from my standpoint. My brother started working on her house in 1993 and i mean the whole house at one time and never finished. My moms house looks like a rehab unfinished. She's 77 years old. I went to prison back then, but am now home and she has been living in this house this way this whole time. I saw my mother last week and she looked sick. I came in the next day and saw that she was looking the same and took her to emergancy. She was admitted that day and diagnosed the very next day with terminal cancer. Even if I don't do it. I would like for someone to please get in contact with memebers of the show HGTV to see if I can make my mom smile by getting them to come out and fix her house. I would be very much appreciated. I can be reached at 216-403-4832.
