Searching For Charlotte York's Wallpaper!



Last Sunday night, I was up very late on a mad search for Charlotte's wallpaper -from this year's movie. When I first started my blog, I wrote how I was obsessed with her bedroom wallpaper from the series, and found Farrow & Ball's Ringwold that subsituted quite nicely. Currently, I've been thinking about that wallpaper a lot lately--hopefully in the context of starting some new projects. Anyway, the evening before, I picked up the DVD while out on a date with the hubby. I had secretly wanted to try to figure out the wallpaper, and of course had to see the movie again, as I explained to the hubby. He doesn't like it when I have a hidden agenda, especially when he wanted the overpriced blue rae disk. By last Wednesday, I had destroyed my new DVD because of stopping and forwarding--hmmm! So between google searches and only getting to where Lily grabs Carrie's phone, I was able to figure out the dining room. Yeah. The wallpaper is by Osborne & Little--Nina Campbell, the collection is Birdcage Walk Amazonas.


Now, what I did not get to was the rest of the apartment. I love Charlotte's enrtry hall, as well as the hall into which Carrie steps out to talk to Big. I could have sworn that was de Gournay but not sure because now my DVD is all messed up! And finally, Charlotte's new bedroom! Anyway, if anyone, anyone at all, knows anything about the beautiful wallpapers that were used in Charlotte's apartment --I would love to know!!!!

That is so funny. You are like me. I obsess over some little detail until I get it figured out. I suppose I like a "quest" of sorts. You may want to enlist the help of blogger "copy cat chic". She has helped me when trying to find reasonably priced acrylic furniture. I'll bet she could track down the wallpaper! Have fun and good luck!

Just thinking about you this weekend while looking through Michael Smith's Elements of Style - sun room done in Zuber! Will try to post it. Thanks for the tip - will try to give her a shout once I have a little time!

I was searching around the internets for information on/photos of Charlotte's place, and I came across your site. Thanks for all the information on her bedroom and wallpaper! If you've have any other photos and/or information, I'd love for you to write some new posts about it!
