Cool Wallpaper!

As you may know, I am getting ready to work on the bi-annual Junior League Show House. The teenage girls room is going to be great. One of the signature style elements in this room will be it's wall treatment.

On a recent Rachael Ray show rerun, I saw very similar wallpaper used in a decorating segment. My wall treatment will be slightly different but similar to the "frames" wallpaper in the first of this video. You'll have to check it out. It is really cool!

Home Decorating magazines

In the last month or so, two of my favorite shelter magazine have closed. The magazines, domino and "O" at Home, are no longer publishing. Yes, I guess it is the sign of the times but I am still bummed. Home style changes so fast that by the time some books get published cutting edge tips and designs have come and gone. Magazine print cycle is faster so you can (er--rather could) keep up with the trends.
What is your favorite shelter magazine? I need a new favorite to fill the void. What do you suggest?
