Wall Hanging

This was in Stella today. I noticed the wallhanging above the stairwell and liked it. I think it may be a Timorous Beasties image. The hanging is a piece of wallpaper held on by clips. The reason that I am including it my blog is that I think there is a place for larger image wallpapers- if not only in the traditional way but also as hangings. It also shows that there is a market for wallhangings. Though I personally think it would cheap to hang wallpaper like this, I think it would have been better in a textile.

Interesting bed

Shawn Lovell Metalworks Tree Bed
This bed caught my attention. I like the way it brings nature into your sleeping quarters. It looks like a nest at the top. Love it!
