Vola Faucet by Arne Jacobsen and woods wallpaper

I would love to use the woods wallpaper in a kitchen. It does seem to be a little ubiquitous right now, but i still think it would look great.

Penny Tile

Penny tile is really quite versatile. It can be used on floors and walls in old homes and new construction alike. It can even be used in both residential and commercial without looking out of place.

I love the look in this home. And, at $5.75 a square foot it’s fairly economical too.

Natural Cork Mosaic Tile

Take a look at this penny sized cork tile- I really like the look and it gets a bunch of points for being recycled from the cork stopper industry’s by-product.

“Cork Mosaic Tile in this 1″ Penny Round style is perfect for walls and floors and even ceilings and is water resistant. So easy to install and seal for a waterproof and insulating flooring or wall covering. Sold by approximately 1 square foot (.92 sq ft per sheet)and comes in double sheets measuring 11.5 x 23(1.84 sq.ft. double sheet) for faster installation.”

Chalkboard Walls

Remodelista did a post recently on blackboard walls; some of the pictures have me wishing I had more wall space to play around with.

Also, they give a great link to Abacus Construction Index which provides a great overview of different chalkboard paint suppliers.

Green Roofs/Wall Panels

Audrey over at the Dwell Blog wrote a short article about green roofs that’s worth a look. Installation is not as simple as I’m sure we’d all like to believe, but when done right, green roofs can have important economic benefits that add up into one smart investment.

When looking through some of the companies offering green roof systems, there was some impressive photos of Green Wall Panels by G-SKY that had me imagining my second floor patio walls completely covered in greenery. Might be just the thing for those of us who can’t quite commit (or afford) to redo our roofs yet, but still want to scratch that itch of ‘green-ing’ our home a little bit more. Pricing depends on plant selections, wall type, and overall size.

There’s also ELT Living Walls (not shown), which are a bit more accessible (and affordable, starting at $189.00).

Nama Rococo Little Butterfly Loop Wallpaper

This wallpaper might just be my favorite yet- the soft muted background color with the seemingly crazy little doodles scattered about are quite lovely.

“Moving into a 3,500 foot warehouse may have changed Karen Combs forever. Already an established artist, this new space enabled her projects to get larger. The space was large enough for a 50 foot roll of paper that was to become her first wallpaper. Each sheet is handpainted and handscreened for unparalleled quality.”

I’m not one for the overly decorative, but as I see more and more spaces transformed by wallpaper, I’ve been drawn to the mix of patterned walls with the simplest of furnishings. I do have to say these wallpapers by Misha are truly exquisite, and even if it’s not your type of thing (or within your budget) it’s certainly worth taking a look at the level of detail involved.

“MISHA handmade wallpapers selects, produces and distributes silk hand-painted wallpapers, that act as decorative frescoes for any exclusive contemporary space.”

prices range from 75 € to 600 €/m2
