The Prettiest Paper

Portraits, InteriorsWalking in the door on Church Street, one of the first things people ever ask me about is the wallpaper in the front hall. And I am often surprised when I tell people that it is Meg Braff Designs, and they had no idea that the designer had a line of wallpaper. Launched in 2011, Meg Braff Designs includes both wallpaper and fabrics. When midcentury wallpaper company Philip Graf put their archives up for sale, which included paper from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, Braff purchased every single roll. These timeless patterns have now been updated in new color ways, and look as fresh today as they did in the ’60s.  Portraits, InteriorsThe wallpaper in our front hall is called “Ferns.” DSC_0009The wallpaper in the powder room is called “Grille of Kells”IMG_2695I visited Meg Braff’s shop in Locust Valley, NY last summer, and felt like a kid in a candy store standing at a table covered in beautiful wallpaper samples. One of the best things about Meg Braff Designs wallpaper is that you can customize the colors. So if you like a certain pattern, but wish it could be blue instead of green, you can have it in blue.Meg BraffMeg Braff Designs just put some new patterns up on their website and I am already in love with a number of them. There are so many beautiful papers to choose from, it is almost impossible to pick just one … which is why the two wallpapers in my house are both Meg Braff Designs.

Visit Meg Braff Designs online here, or if you’re in the NYC/Long Island area I would highly recommend a trip to her shop in Locust Valley.
