Kips Bay Decorator Showhouse 2009; installation designed by Amy Lau using multiple Maya Romanoff wallcoverings
As I was trying to catch up on my ginormous stack of magazines this weekend (Interior Design Oct. 09! Sheesh!), I came across an article about Maya Romanoff Wallcovering. It made me want to share. If you've followed us for a while, you know about our love of wallcovering, and this company's offerings are, to us, some of the best of the best.
We just purchased 2 vastly different selections of Maya for 2 of our clients.
For Client #1, it was Gunmetal Marquetry for a small niche just off of the foyer of her residence. This is what it looks like in more of a Maple-toned finish.
We installed Gunmetal - more of a silver/grey color. Here it is close up:
It's a very thin wood veneer in 18" x 18" blocks. There is such a variation in the way the light hits it, it's breathtaking. It has a little sparkle to it, but it looks like sand, not gaudy, Las Vegas style sparkle. Beautiful sparkle.
For Client #2 we used Bedazzled - which is more like Las Vegas style sparkle. It's tiny little beads. We had it hung in a powder room and it is DELICIOUS!
This is what it looks like from far away, but up close - check it out:
It's made of miniature beads that look like glass. Gorgeous, fabulous and super fun.
Now kick back and peruse this yummy eye candy.
This is a wood veneer with a Swarovski crystal in the center.
Mother of Pearl Chevron
Yes, it really is REAL Mother of Pearl. Stunning.
This is Beadazzled Bijoux - the small glass beads arranged in a pattern. Aahhhh
The Beadazzled collection has about 10 other variations in pattern and tons of juicy colors.
This is Stitched:
The name speaks for itself.
So soft and fuzzy
And last but not least, Anniversary Snowflake
D.I.E. Love it.
