Wall Paper Love - Phillip Jeffries

I have been in love with this wall paper for a very long time...



Isn't it gorgeous?!

It's from Phillip Jeffries and it's called Moroccan (obviously) from the PASSPORT COLLECTION. It is hand-printed by artisans on natural Manila hemp, linen & japanese paper weave.
When I knew I was gonna renovate my kitchen for sure, I knew I would be incorporating this gorgeous wall paper in the space. I just had to figure out how to get it...

You see, if you go to the site, you cannot just buy online or order this wall paper over the phone.
You have to be a member of a design trade or so to order.
And so I tried availing the service of one local interior design specialist in our area.
However, somehow it did not work out and I turned to my blogosphere friends for help!

Particularly to the wonderful Mother-Daughter duo of Nancy & Bethany from "Powell Brower at Home"!

And of course, I was not disappointed !
They helped me in getting the sample, avail of a fabulous discount and of course, ordered this gorgeous wall paper for my kitchen! They even went to the WASHINGTON DESIGN CENTER  to help me out ( You can READ ALL ABOUT IT HERE)!!!

Bethany talks to an expert 

 To top it all off, although I told them from the start that this was purely a 'professional request', they still did not charge me a single dime for all their help!!
I was just blown away with this and could not believe it, truly one of the perks of blogging for sure - great sources into great friends!

I am truly grateful and thankful to these two wonderful ladies for all their help!!! I love their BLOG and I love them both! Thank you again... ;-)

So do you want to see it in my kitchen? Here's a peak...

sorry for the bad lighting

I don't want to show you the whole thing until the kitchen is entirely complete, then you'll understand why I'm so smitten (sorry for the tease..;-)).

Anyway, if you guys are in need of anyDesign Service at all, do consider Nancy & Bethany from "Powell Brower at Home".

Based on my very satisfying experience, I'd say a big A+ to these two!

Happy Decorating!

  1. Stop it! You are just adorable and thank you so much for the props. It is such a pleasure to work with such a wonderful person and you really are a dream. Bethany took the lead on this one and she makes me so proud. So happy your kitchen is coming along beautifully and that we could help. Xo Nancy

  2. Oh my gosh! I love that they were so happy to help you! What wonderful ladies! I was in the same predicament a few months back when I was looking for tile for my bathroom! They wouldn't sell to anyone who wasn't a tradesperson so I just went somewhere else. But it would have been wonderful to have some wonderful ladies like Bethany and Nancy on my side! So happy things worked out for you!
