I have lusted after Maya Romanoff’s “Beadazzled” glass bead encrusted wallcovering ever since the fated moment I laid my eyes on the samples. This is completely cost prohibitive to most mortals ($200 for a 3 yard/27″ wide roll), and may teeter on the edge of being “over the top”, but sometimes going a little crazy in small doses is a good thing. Unexpected touches in little nooks of a house can be great fun. After all, it’s just decor, no one is getting a Nobel Prize for this.
Can you imagine covering the walls of a walk in closet with this? I would have to put a tv and an internet jack in there, because I would never want to leave my little jewel box! Other applications that would look truly fun and stunning would be the interior of the dressing rooms in a fabulous boutique, or the ceiling of a small powder room. Talk about a conversation piece! It comes in a variety of textures and colors (with rich, sassy names like “Scotch N Soda”, “Caviar” and “Disco Tangerine”).
Another Maya wallcovering that is completely lust-worthy is her inlaid capiz shell tiles
. Nothing could be more perfect on a luxe beach house powder room wall behind the sink and mirror. It is truly something to behold, and definitely something you want out of the reach of little kids with markers and dirty hands, for this stuff is not only delicate, it would cost about as much as a Honda to install.
It may be a little much, but it makes me smile, and that’s all that’s important in life..and decorating!
