I wish catalogs would credit everything in a photograph the way that magazines do. Why do they tease with perfect, real-life settings for their products and not fully arm us with the how-tos on creating the look ourselves. Case in point: This insanely adorable room from Land of Nod, above. Yes, I know how to get the gorgeous red Jenny Lind bed and the vibrant black-and-white storage trunk, but what I have really been obsessed with is that wallpaper! Not only am I leaning towards a black-and-white pattern for our bedroom wall, I’m hopeless romantic about the London skyline. I lived there on and off through the years, and my heart always swells a bit when I see the Eye, Big Ben, or even the Gherkin. I’m pleased to report that after some Googling I found the source — Graham & Brown. I should have known that the makers of the hippest, prettiest wallpapers were behind this one. It’s called Londinium and it was made to commemorate the Olympics last summer. Wallpaper is not a light a commitment, so I ordered a sample to look at.
