My gift guides for 09 are in the works and I’ll have at least one or two to you this week, but even while I think of gifts I am thinking of the wrapping as well! I love wrapping presents. My first job ever as a little kid was working in the gift wrap room at my family’s clothing store. I have such amazingly fond memories of going with my dad to work and parking myself in the back amongst boxes, tissue, papers and ribbons and gleefully waiting for a package to come back that needed to be wrapped. I’d even wrap empty boxes to practice my technique to make sure it was perfect. So as an adult I still get really excited to pick out my holiday paper and come up with a crafty presentation. Here are some wrapping papers I found that reminds me of great interiors and interior accessories- why not combine the things I love?
This one reminds me so much of Jonathan Adler!
This classic reminded me of Osbourne & little Coronata Star wallpaper- add a bold ribbon for a really lovely look.
This crisp green and white looks very Kate Spade to me. Maybe with just a glossy black sating ribbon and a yellow tag?
This paper made me instantly think of Clarence House’s cherry blossom paper!
Red+ aqua+ black+ trellis pattern= AWESOME. Use this one with an aqua ribbon and black tag or accent for something really modern and chic.
Wood grain/ faux bois print is pretty hot in all things interiors (fabrics, wallpaper, rugs) so why not wrapping paper? I’d add a light blue ribbon to this one and call it a day.
This medallion print brings an eclectic look to the holiday (like Peter Dunham’s print shown here). Use raffia and perhaps a contasting solid paper cuff to dress it up.
They have an Imperial Trellis looking paper that would look amazing with any color ribbon accent!
Also a John Derian style calligraphy print that gives an antique look
And to add a personal touch to each gift you can use these amazing personalized gift tags from Tiny Prints– there are so many prints to choose from!
