I SPY DIY x Chasing Paper Wallpaper Collection!!!
THE WALLPAPER COLLECTION IS LIVE!!! The I Spy DIY x Chasing Paper collaboration was inspired by the Spring and Summer seasons in Wisconsin, and the unique flowers that seemingly pop up out of nowhere. Each print represents the tiny delights that offer joy after our long Winters. Exploring nature has been so important to our family. We love to hike the stunning areas of Milwaukee, paying close attention to the flowers that are in season. Our little girl loves picking them and filling our home with bouquets. My goal with this collection was to capture that joyful feeling and bring it into our home. Now we can enjoy the blooms all year round!
Each flower and element of the prints were found in pages of antique books I’ve thrifted. Teaming up with Chasing Paper was the perfect partnership to bring my vision to life. If you’ve been here for a while you know I’m such a fan of their product and have loved it for years. To be able to create a collection that combines my love of nature and antiquing was an absolute dream come true!!
I SPY DIY x Chasing Paper Collection is HERE!!!
The Chasing Paper x I Spy DIY Collection features six unique wallpaper prints, offered in both removable and traditional wallpaper:
And that’s not all! The collection also has a peel-and-stick vinyl floor tile print, called Stepping Stone, that would look great paired with any of the prints.
AND ART PRINTS!! We include 3 of my own oil paint landscapes, and a few vintage prints to pair with the wallpaper!!! Surreal that something I painted might hang on your walls!!!
Fresh Cut – This print planted the seed for the whole collection! We were working on a bathroom renovation project, and it was missing something — wallpaper! I knew a floral print felt right, but nothing I saw online felt like the right fit for the space. I found a bunch of botany pages at my favorite antique store and started arranging them to create the idea of a print. Chasing Paper turned my design into a beautiful, custom wallpaper that was stunning in the space! After the glowing reaction from I Spy DIY readers, we knew that we needed to collaborate on a full wallpaper collection. See how Fresh Cut brought our Pantry to life with this blog post.
Garden – This has to be one of my favorite prints in the collection. Story time… one afternoon I was looking through old books and found an aerial blueprint of a flower garden from 1876. Instantly I fell in love with the shape of the garden and wanted to see how it would look as a pattern. If you look closely, you can see the bushes and stairs in the print! From further away it creates a pattern that feels like a neutral backdrop. I see it in a pantry above a pegrail, or a workspace with landscape art hanging. See how Garden transformed my studio space in this blog post.
Forest – In Wisconsin, we have the most beautiful woodlands. I wanted to create a print that would remind me of the hikes with my family. More often than not, we spot deer running all around us! I found this forest swatch in an old book, and we were able to duplicate the pattern to create this whimsical print. It would be perfect for a playroom or kids’ room with a woodland creature theme, or a more mature setting like a bathroom in a cabin. See Forest used in my Barnhouse Livingroom makeover blog post.
Floral Play – I always describe this one as my take on a floral paisley. The print is subtle, but the detail is beautiful. What I love about this print is that it can work for both a kids’ space or an adult room. It’s the perfect background for an office area or a nursery. The subtle print really allows art, like floral prints, to shine. I loved how Floral Play brought an inviting softness to our Office in this blog post.
Gather – When looking through antique botany books, I found these stunning flower outlines. I started cutting them out and arranging them. As it began to take shape, I envisioned these delicate flowers on rich background colors: evergreen, eggplant, mushroom. The bold colors in the collection pair well with paint or tile, and the delicate flower adds just the right amount of texture and interest to a space. I hung the Beige version in my bathroom above the subway tile. The color is beautiful and changes throughout the day with the light. The pattern is stunning, yet not overwhelming, and is a lovely backdrop for art. To see Gather in our Master Bathroom click here.
Lace – Inspired by the fields of Queen Anne’s Lace that bloom in the last heat of Wisconsin Summer. The dainty flowers created a delicate pattern that is just oh-so sweet. The flowers on green would be so pretty in a smaller space like a powder room or a pantry, and the lighter colorway for a larger space like a living room or sunroom. I couldn’t resist using the sample panels I had to give a temporary facelift to our kitchen in the Charcoal Bungalow. I was blown away by the result, take a look by clicking here and tell me if I should make the change permanent.
Floor Tile – Chasing Paper recently launched adhesive floor tile, and we are excited to offer a printed tile in three colors as part of this collection. Paired with the wallpaper or on its own, this statement tile will instantly update a space! Go bold with the Gray colorway, or try a softer look with the Beige version (which would pair beautifully with the Gather wallpaper).
The I Spy DIY x Chasing Paper collection features antique prints, and landscapes painted by yours truly! The prints are meant to be paired with the wallpapers, but if you already have a space you love they might just be the perfect accent for your home. Frame in a vintage frame and hang alone, or group a few to create a gallery wall.
