Friends, I don't do giveaways very often. On a daily basis I am inundated with emails from press people trying to get me to review off brand paint and eco toilets, but I try to keep the blog strictly related to things I want to get in my house right now.
Things like wallpaper.
Me and wallpaper have a lifelong love affair going on. It started when I was a wee baby, swaddled in a muslin cloth tacked together by wallpaper paste, rocked to sleep with the sweet smell of wet wheat in the air... fast forward to today, when I have a closet filled with stacks of wallpaper samples. Sometimes I stroke them gently at night and whisper sweet nothings into their ears. Don't tell anyone.
All this to say I am a little excited to be giving away THREE ROLLS of Graham and Brown wallpaper designed by Steve Leung!
The winner will have her/his choice from any of the six Asian inspired patterns designed by Steve Leung in any available colorway.
THREE. ROLLS. BAM.
That's enough to paper a huge feature wall, or perhaps a small powder room, foyer, or laundry room.
So, basically $80000 worth of wallpaper... or maybe $255 USD. Whatever. That's a lot of wallpaper. Let's check out the players, shall we?
There's Jiao, which has a touch of the De Gournay about it. This color is very pretty in real life, but other colors are also available.
This is Bao, which means treasure. Adorable, because my Chinese bud always calls my kids "bao bao." Anyway, the rep sent me a black sample but I lovessss the cream on cream. You can't tell from the picture but this pattern is very textured.
Hua has some metallic interest in the branches.
Juan is so sparkly it's like a disco in your eyeballs. I am kind of obsessed with the gold on cream colorway.
Ling has great scale, and is slightly textured. All of the colors are nice. Karly likes the cream on cream but I think the red might be Chinese Chippendaletastic.
And then there's Mai.
Let me tell you about this honey of a paper: you can hang it vertically or horizontally. It has a teeny touch of metallic interest, but not Kim Kardashian much. All the colors are great -- the white and silver is dreamy and versatile, but the charcoal is dramatown and would be perfect in a foyer.
In short, I want to marry this paper and I'm a little annoyed I agreed to give it away rather than keep it for myself. 100% serious.
There better be a lot of entries or I will be tempted to create 100 anonymous email addresses and enter my own contest.
I took some pictures of the samples the rep sent me so you could kind of get a sense of the texture on the papers.
All of these patterns are nonwoven paste-the-wall papers that are so easy to hang even a dummy like me can do it. And if you tire of them, just peel the paper off the wall in strips.
You need this in your life.
Please peruse the available selections here and pick a fave pattern and color. Leave a comment telling me all about your favorite paper and what you plan to use it for. The winner is free to change her/his mind so don't get all analysis paralysis on me... I'm really just curious and y'all know I love to talk decorating projects.
That's it! Leave a comment and you are entered for a chance to win three rolls of Graham and Brown wallpaper designed by Steve Leung.
The contest ends at midnight central time on Thursday, May 16. Winner will be announced on Friday.
Let's blow it up, people.
