Room Inspired Wrap

Photo by Stephanie Diani for The New York Times, via Stylecourt.

Inspired by designer Krista Ewart's use of this red and white Madeline Weinrib rug, I have been on the hunt for a holiday wrapping paper with a similar feel. The closest I have found to date is this Zig Zag pattern from Nepalese Paper. Their gift wraps are hand printed on cultivated bark, a practice which sustains both the environment and the local economy of Nepal. Everybody wins!

I've been doing the same thing--hunting for the perfect gift wrap--of course, I won't really know until I figure out this year's Christmas theme . . . That paper is great (and so is the rug, for that matter.)

That Zig Zag rug is my new obsession. I know I'm going to end up buying one. I actually had a dream about it this week...

I love that this room can be changed with a quick switch of decor. The white walls and the white bedding create a clean canvas to work with. Beautiful room.
