There’s nothing we love more than getting pictures from our happy customers in their happy spaces! Our removable wallpaper is the perfect way to add a pop of color in any room. Here’s a look at four of our favorite ‘One of a Kime Spaces’ this month!
Award-winning Interior Designer, Courtnay Tartt Elias of Houston, Texas brightened up her Galveston vacation home with our Spring Pineapples Wallpaper. We love the way she used accents of gold to tie together the pink and green color scheme.
This happy space we are loving is from one of our favorite interior design firms. Boutique full-service interior design firm, Baudit Interior Design, from Toronto, Canada specializes in residential and corporate spaces. Baudit used one of our classic wallpapers, Seeing Spots Wallpaper, to liven up a plain white wall in one of their customer's bedrooms.
I spoke with Erika McCarthy who told me a little more about this colorful space.
The project was completed in the fall of 2017, it was a new custom home located in Oakville, Ontario (west of Toronto), and we looked after the full interiors scope – all finishes, millwork design, lighting layouts and specification, furniture, etc… all of it. The home is very modern but has a warm aesthetic and is very comfortable and welcoming. The finishes throughout the home are very neutral, all white walls, warm wood tones, and some beautiful deep blue tones in furnishings. This bedroom was for a young girl, and while we wanted to continue the clean look from rest of the home in to the two kids bedrooms, it was important that these spaces be fun and youthful yet sophisticated. I wanted this space to be fun for the age this special girls is now, but be able to grow with her and not date itself. A rich saturated pink was selected for the the headboard accented by gold studs. I’ve always loved the Seeing Spots pattern and this was the perfect application for it! The white backing was the perfect match to the wall colour throughout the home, it blended seamlessly and the spots created just the right amount of impact on this feature wall.– Erika McCarthy
Banana Leaves Wallpaper has always been a favorite among the Katie Kime Team, so when we saw the way it transformed this tiny office space, I knew I had to catch up with the Interior Designer who created this magical space. Lover of all this bright and cheery, Lisa Ball Williams gave us some insight into her background and her love for the Katie Kime Banana Leaves Wallpaper.
First, I asked Lisa to tell me a little about herself and her background with interior design
I’ve been designing and renovating houses for 20 years. I love a renovation project and have done 6 renovations on my own family homes, all of them varying in scale. 3 were in Oxford, MS where we lived as a family for 23 years. We moved to Birmingham in 2015 and have done 3 houses in 4 years. We love it! Still working on the 3rd one in here. Luckily most of our renovated houses have sold to family or friends, so I still get to spend time in them after moving on to the next house that is calling us for some love and beauty treatments! …and the next! Each house has been perfect for a particular stage of life for us. I keep saying I could do a book on our life events based on what house we lived in!
In my design work, I use individuality, creativity and color so that “no home will look exactly like yours” – my own homes have each had a different flair, but much of the same furniture, family heirlooms and art which is how I work with clients both local and long distance. I could go on and on, but I know you just needed a little info and will have to hone this down as it is. Like most designers, I could talk about it forever.– Lisa Ball Williams
I asked Lisa to tell me about her office space and why she chose the Banana Leaves Wallpaper.
Last year in Birmingham, AL, this office was carved out of an attic space at the end of a sunny hall. The house needed a spot to sit and pay bills, work from home, etc within earshot of the upstairs playroom and children’s bedrooms. Since the 8×11 space was in between interior walls, there was no way to put in a window….I had been adoring the Katie Kime banana leaf paper on Instagram and website, so I immediately knew it was the perfect way to bring the outside into this windowless space. The wallpaper combined with green cabinetry and turquoise accents provides instant happy energy! I feel like the office is ageless -great now for adults and will be a wonderful homework area or computer station later for older kids.

Lastly, we are loving this beautiful bright office space! This is the office at Mirror Mirror Salon located right here in Austin, Texas. Owner and Stylist, Martha Lynn Kale, used our clean, chic Arrows Wallpaper to make her office space bright and girly.
