For some reason I thought I would have our new house put together much more quickly than it’s actually coming. I think I forgot to factor in that I’d still have to work and that my pregnant state isn’t so much conducive to hefting boxes around and climbing on ladders.

My latest time sucking Google searches have been focused on wallpaper (yes, I’m putting it up in two small areas) and textiles and I keep on finding myself saying, “I just want something Josef Frank like without the price tag.” Completely fruitless I’m telling you. He just got it right.

In the US, you can buy Josef Frank fabrics and wallpaper for a pretty penny from Just Scandinavian.

    I’ve fallen in love with Scandinavian patterns lately. Must be my Norwegian quarter coming out. These photos are so inspiring. And I can’t wait to see where you put up wallpaper and what pattern you choose!

    Maybe framing a yard of fabric instead of papering a whole wall? Could look pretty rad. Good luck nesting! It’s completely frustrating, isn’t it? I had major insomnia as well, which was brutal; being awake, having ideas and not being physically able to see it all through. Great joke mother nature! Hysterical.

    I’ve been out of the loop for about 3 months (preggers myself) so I hadn’t heard that you are pregnant – CONGRATS!
