Hello City Park

I have been searching and searching for the perfect wallpaper for our guest bath.  I was really set on going with either Osborne & Little's Paradiso by Nina Campbell or Cole & Son's Hummingbirds.

I was torn and continually looking at other options to see if I would find something that I just knew was right. Then, this morning I picked up the newest issue of Chicago Social Interiors and I was floored when I came upon this wallpaper.

I love so many things about it.  I love the coral color.  I love the pattern and when I looked into the source I discovered even more things to love about it.  The wallpaper is called City Park and is by Flavor Paper.  It is an urban take on the damask pattern and hides lots of fun surprises.  Here is the image from their website.

Can you see what I'm talking about yet?  Hidden (kind of) in the damask pattern is fire hydrants, pigeons, rats, & parking meters!  I think it's really hilarious and I think it makes a somewhat girly, traditional pattern a little more fun and edgy.  I definitely think it makes the idea of wallpaper a little more appealing to my husband. I have already emailed the company to find out about ordering this in the coral color and I am anxiously awaiting their response.  I love it when the exact thing you've been looking for (when you weren't really sure what you were looking for) finds you.

Thoughts?  Would you put these urban items up on your wall if you could disguise them in pretty coral damask?  I'm pretty set on it.


  1. That is so cool! I don't know how I didn't realize there was a fire hydrant hiding in there. I love that they took something so traditional and added a little edge. The coral is really pretty too!

  2. I love this! So clever, and the coral is a gorgeous colour.

  3. This is a perfect choice! I love the coral. Can't wait to see it all come together!
