today i pinned a bedroom image from a kelly wearstler design and it brought me back to the time when my sister and i did a similar treatment to walls in our bedroom with red hearts. we could not afford wallpaper or have the least idea how to get it, but with all the red paper our few dollars could buy, away we went cutting till every sizeable inch of paper was used to create our wall love fest, a random display of chalky red hearts scotch taped to the walls.
who would have thunk a nine and ten year old could be so trendy 20, 30 or how ever many years (who’s counting anyway…) ago before someone else stole our idea? just kidding, kelly… i’m sure we thought the idea was stellar back then. and as amazing we girls still are, today i would love to share someone who has completely turned our little girl folly into an idea that is high style. let me introduce you to Payton Cosell Turner, the brain child behind the creative use of ordinary dime store (or for you younger tykes, dollar store) stickers. her designs eschew sophisticated brocades, elegant damasks and intricately devised patterns. truly delightful, don’t you think?
perhaps it’s the same naiveté that my sister and i shared to help her conceive her vision, i don’t know, but it sure does make me smile. to see more on Payton Cosell Turner-yes she is the granddaughter of the late Howard Cosell – go to elle décor magazine.
happy sEEing and belEEving!
