There’s something about December - a slow build up of memories and events; a month of celebration, happiness and joy; a time for retrospection of what was and what could be. Where the past, present and the future align together under the warmth of a cozy blanket. In the cool of a the winter breeze - suddenly and all at once - they’re the end, and the beginning. Decembers are for chances, to give and to take; for resolutions, for new beginnings, for change.
With 2018 right round the corner, what’s better than bringing out the new-year-new-me with wallcoverings that are more than just a statement piece. Inspired by Katie Holdefehr’s horoscopic home colour predictions on Apartment Therapy, here’s a compilation of matching wallcoverings that have been handpicked for your soul.
