This or That: Spring Is Coming Edition

Another episode of my favorite game— fashion vs. interiors where we compare fashion and home trends (since they are so closely related). Which of these would you prefer?

Sandberg’s Raphael wallpaper OR this Boden dress that has almost the exact same pattern?

    1. Nope, me too! As I was going through the list it reminded me just how much I love interiors. I go shopping for a dress for an event, and instead come home with fabric or a lamp!

  1. Awesome comparisons… and..gah! That animal print chair! That print keeps resurfacing (I recommended a similar one to you on insta last week for your office chairs)…. it may be kismet, I need to get something in this print in my home… and somehow sneak it past the masculine-ly esthetic-ed hubs…(though I am sure he’d like the swimsuit version).

  2. What an absolutely delightful post!!!

    The Sandberg wallpaper & that leopard chair hard my heart at hello ! Also I’ll be looking for the I Married Adventure book…it even LOOKS divine (book jacket aficionado here :))

  3. Nailed it! I would choose both in every category…wait, that’s not how you play?? (Also thinking about you during Snowstorm WTF…)

  4. HONESTLY girl…you DO HAVE THE EYE and that is SO pleasing to me…absolutely luv it!! franki ps the swimsuit/cover

  5. I have just been dying over the gingham ball skirt and wondering where I can wear it…
    Erin – I HAVE A QUESTION FOR YOU, if you have time to answer…I am thinking you might know it off the top of your head…
    What is the best leopard fabric to cover a chair seat in? For a foyer…Nice and warm, but not too orange?

  6. I adore that wallpaper and I hope you will offer an opinion: if you had to choose to use it in an entry or a dining room which would you choose? I will also note that when I was at the Nashville Antique and Garden Show I saw several old tapestries (which I’m told were Flemish) with an almost identical pattern and in the same blues and greens. It’s amazing how on trend these ancient tapestries were.
    Thanks for your lovely blog!

  7. On further research I learned those are called ‘verdure’ tapestries. Searching ‘verdure’ wallpaper for fun yielded some really pretty results. Cheers!
