design inspiration: winter branches + wallpaper

By: Elaine Song

I think we can all agree that this has been quite the winter. From polar vortexes to ice storms to "life threatening" windchill temperatures, it's been a true test of our Canadian skin (and wardrobe!). The one silver lining to the weather, however, is how incredibly beautiful it can be. Once the chaos of rain, wind and ice settled, the calm outside was so quiet and inspiring. Don't get me wrong, I love winter. I still get giddy for the first snowfall and embrace the season on my snowboard. But I've never seen it quite like this. Bare tree branches frozen in time, veining through the sky. Instant design inspiration.

I felt instantly inspired to bring some of this frozen calm into my home, where I can appreciate it and not suffer from frostbite at the same time. Our January 2014 issue features a beautiful wallpaper pattern in Style News that embraces the beauty of winter.

The winter branch pattern comes in a soft silver and grey, is pre-pasted, washable and peelable. Wouldn't it make a lovely accent wall in a nook or a neutral dining room?

Buy this wallpaper: Bouclair Home, $29.99 (double roll).
