More wallpapers in the works; decided to go larger with my Ronneby print, named for my mother's hometown in Sweden. And below, the inspiration for this print: Ronneby! To the left, the building where my morfar and mormor had their dentistry practice, and straight ahead, the church where my parents got married.


Where it all began (it being my love of wallpaper, and basically all my inspiration for lilleputt): hos mormor (grandma's house). I was digging through old photos at my mom's this weekend, in search of photos from my mormors house, trying to recall details in the bathroom wallpaper, the steep steps up to the attic and old toys, the gnarled trees in the orchard and snails on the slate walkway, and the roses around the gate... And then I found this one of us at the kitchen table where the salt and pepper shakers became my toys, and the smell of steamed milk and melting butter always take me back.
