Norinne De Gal: Founder, Walnut Wallpaper
The Ultimate Wallpaper Pro Reveals Her Favorites and Tells Us What's Trending
ELAINE SAYS: If my walls could talk they'd be begging for a pretty, new dress. I've been flirting with wallpaper forever and since I define a mental vacation as a couple hours of browsing through home stores, I often find myself doing just that at my favorite wallpaper shop, WALNUT. This tiny boutique is dense with options and has become THE go-to designer resource and a regular inspiration stop for me. Not surprising that this is where I found myself not long ago, once again flipping through books and daydreaming about the untapped potential of my dining room walls. Euphoric in my design high, I had just enough consciousness in me to notice a familiar and friendly face walk through the shop...a mom of a child in my daughters class at school, Norinne DeGal. So of course, I said hello and giggled about how funny it was to run into her here of all places. "Not really," she said, "...this is my shop!" Could you imagine? I about fell over. Needless to say, that trip turned into my favorite ever, as I then enjoyed a personally guided tour through some of the most fabulous wallpaper swatches I'd ever seen....a far better experience than any I'd had previously on my own. Plus, I realized how hilarious she is, what a keen eye she has....and we've become fast friends, the best part. So...the moral of the story is clearly that treating yourself to some new wallpaper is great for your social life :). More importantly, Norinne agreed to share some of her favorite papers, just in case you have the wallpaper bug as well. PS: Thanks to Norinne, I finally picked my own favorite from Eskayel [line featured below].
