Fornasetti Fun

I was in one of my favorite showrooms the other day, Lee Jofa, when I spotted an installation of this amazing etched clouds wallpaper from Cole & Sons. I’d seen it in samples before but never on the wall and I fell hard for it and then found out it was a Fornasetti design.  Seeing as my love for things black and white is at an all time high right now, I decided to revisit his designs which I once didn’t care for, and found myself intrigued!

Malachite it having a moment- and this wallpaper is one of the best.  I actually had no idea it was Fornasetti, that’s how uneducated I am about his work. I’m actually hoping to wallpaper the interior of a cabinet in the green version.

Do you remember reader Colette’s apartment I featured here and here years ago?? She had a great collection of Fornasetti and had her bathroom papered in this iconic print!

Here are some small accents you could add to your house for a touch of this look since you only really need (and want) a dose of it.  It can be overwhelming in abundance.

These candles are AWESOME!!! I’d love the first one for my house.

These plates with their gold accents are gorgeous and would look pretty amazing hanging on the wall.

This little eye dish would be great as a catchall for earrings or bobby pins on your bathroom counter. Same for this cool box!
