I'm sorry if that headline got you all excited and you thought I'd tell you how to make dresses magically appear in your closet. If I knew that, Net-a-porter would be filing a chapter 11 and the DHL driver would only have a part-time job. So we're talking illusions here, courtesy of UK-based designer Deborah Bowness. For the past 10 years she's been creating digitally and hand printed trompe l'oeil wallpapers, such as these super fun panels with dresses and other things we'd like to have in our closets. These may even be better than the real thing - you get to look at them all day without the guilt of not having put them away, they don't need to be dry cleaned and your sister can't ask to borrow them (I don't have a sister but I've heard this can be a problem). Better yet, bloating is inconsequential to how good they look.
Deborah Bowness also makes wallpaper kits which are just so cool. You can get cut-outs of some of these designs to do with what you please. At first I wasn't sure what was a wallpaper and what was a kit, but it only took me three days to figure it out because I'm smart that way. I'm looking at the plates for the kitchen and the mirror and chandelier for the front hallway of our new house. The phones are great and I like the clocks but I know I'd be constantly looking at them for the time and thinking that the batteries had run out. The chairs and the lamps would be brilliant for those awkward, wasted spaces where you can't fit anything three-dimensional.
I'll post photos when I get it all figured out (fun!). In the meantime you can see more at Deborah's website.
