My latest obsession....

I do not know what it is about "faux livres" but I cannot get them out of my mind.

This wallpaper is my latest obsession, how fabulous is this?

Not sure that I have somewhere to use it at Maison No. 20, may have to wait and use it in the next house........

  1. oh my word I love this.... I would surround myself with books at all times. I have to bookmark that link right now.

  2. What a lovely blog! I love that you love anything french! :)

  3. Impressive. At first, thought they were actual books. Very convincing. This would be perfect in a powder room.

  4. It looks great and very realistic. It would probably close the room in a little, but that doesn't always matter. ...also, a lot cheaper than building a library !! XXXX

  5. So cool...I would be tempted to use it in the guest bathroom on the main floor...You could have so much fun with that! Great find:)

  6. Oh wow, until I read what you had written I had no idea that was wallpaper! That would be so much fun to use somewhere.

  7. I love that but my daughter would love it even more! Jennifer:)

  8. I love them too, not sure if I'm brave enough to use them though. There's nothing like an illusion to transport you..Rachaelxx

  9. Oooh, me too - Love this wallpaper its fantastic! x

  10. This wallpaper is fantastic! I love rooms filled with books!
    A nice day to you!

  11. Ladies... what you are "being tricked" by is the Genuine Fake Bookshelf wallpaper by Deborah Bowness. Because we love that you love it so much, we thought we'd better make it available in NZ should you wish to treat yourselves. Visit to view the Deb Bowness Wallpaper collection, then speak to Sarah and Annabel who will be able to arrange to have a whole library shipped over from England for you!

    First, LOve! LOVE! The paper is amazing. Any Deb your sister? Talent runs in the family, perhaps? I hope you ship to the US.

    Second, I love your blog header and the wallpaper you use for your site. Beautiful.

    Third, thank you for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment. I can't wait to have more time to explore your goodies. I would love to get my hands on some of the books you show from your girl friends house in Africa. Gorgeous.

  13. Just love this idea... and I know for sure, they're are plenty of friends would enjoy it too

  14. Hi LeeAnn,
    I have to agree, this is such a clever and pretty way to treat your walls. I love pretty books and think they should definitely be incorporated into your home's decor.
    By the way, congrats on your blog being recognized in Romantic Homes Magazine! I feel like I'm talking to a celebrity! It is wonderful to see you in the Magazine!
    Well done, my friend!

  19. Love this oh-so-much this the paper in the dining room belonging to Lisa of A Bloomsbury Life - check out her 10-19-09 blog "strangers at my table" I think that's it - you can see her fab dining room w/ this paper
