Brace yourselves…I think we’re going to sell our 1920s Tudor home and move to the country. I know. I can’t believe these words are coming out of my mouth– the one who never wanted to leave the city and felt that the Twin Cities should be considered a small town. The thing is, life changes and so does what makes you happy. Big life changes aside, there are three reasons we have decided to pursue this. First: we need more space. The house is getting cramped and we keep coming up with half-baked solutions for managing all of our stuff. It’s actually the perfect size for a small family, but not the right size for the type of businesses Joe and I are in. We constantly have samples, boxes, bags, STUFF that is in transition from our house to the office and there just isn’t a good place to store it all. The other surprising reason is that I feel better when I’m in the country. A LOT better. In fact, when we leave the city to go visit my in-laws, I can feel my blood pressure drop. The idea of leaving work and going to a place that makes me feel like that every day is really becoming something that I not only want, but desperately need. And three, I’m in dire need of a new space to design! I’m essentially having withdrawals from designing if that is even a thing. This all recently led me down a wild and strange rabbit hole which then propelled me into designing my over-sized dream home in the country. But, it also got me to thinking of all the fun wallpaper I could line throughout my potential new home. In the powder rooms, in Birdie’s room and in a corner of the kitchen. What do you think? I’m kind of in love. I worked with the W&D team and gathered some of our favorite wallpaper as of late. I would love to hear, what wallpaper are you crushing on right now?

Thank you for being here. For being open to enjoying life’s simple pleasures and looking inward to understand yourself, your neighbors, and your fellow humans! I’m looking forward to chatting with you.
I completely relate to wanting to move somewhere that allows me to be closer to nature. I find myself a bit more in my peaceful zone and it allows me to be more creative.
I don’t know if it’s the whole getting older and appreciating life a bit more, or how society has made us into busy bodies, or both. But I used to want to live in a lively city; however…now for the past couple of years, I want to find a little cottage/cabin-like house tucked away in nature near a lake.
The idea of leaving work and going to an area that makes me experience like that each day is really turning into some thing that I no longer best need however desperately need. I

Hi Kate! I came across your post today because i have been looking for moody, vintage wallpapers and bathroom inspirations with it… I love your selections of images for the post. I love mixing old and new! But what called my attention the most was your story about moving from the city to the country. I identified with your story. My husband and I are thinking about doing the same. But it hasn’t been an easy decision, though i always feel so great when we spend time in the country. I wonder if you are already in the country, considering… Read more »
Hi, Renata! Thank you for your comment! I’m so glad you liked the images in the post. We haven’t yet made the move, no! Our plans changed since I wrote that post and we’re still in the city. But I completely still understand the pull to move somewhere that allows more space to roam—I hope you and your husband reach a decision you’re happy with. Good luck!
Maybe it’s just because I’m looking on your site from my phone, but I can’t see the brand/name of my two favorite ones…
The second one down (green) above the Sanberg, and then the green one below the tropical fruits. Do u know the names?
Thanks so much.
Thanks for your comment, Malorie! The second wallpaper down is vintage and not for sale (you can find more info here: https://collection.cooperhewitt.org/objects/18557337/) and from what I can tell, the other green one is no longer for sale. Sorry about that!
Do you have a source for the rabbit paper? thanks!
