Hi, everyone, I’m back! What a fantastic trip! Once I get organized, I’ll share a few photos with you but for now, let’s start the week off with this bit of amazingness:

insideout

I have a massive postcard collection that I started decades ago and I’ve always wanted to cover a wall with them like wallpaper. I think this is the best example I’ve found yet. Isn’t it incredible? Or does it give you a headache? I wouldn’t do it in the living room or anything but maybe somewhere small like the office area in the kitchen or the laundry room. I’m also lusting after the Chesterfield. I’ve had a thing for Chesterfields for a very long time.

I’m looking forward to catching up with all of you but before I go I’d like to say a big thank you to all my fabulous guest bloggers. It was great to have you here! Thank you!

Welcome back Ally! Great idea for the postcard wall. I think it's cool considering the fact you are an avid traveler. It's just another way to truly personalize your space and gives visitors a greater perspective of who lives there. Can't wait to see what you decide!

That postcard wall is fabulous. If you will have similar, it definitely will be a source for many conversations and further ideas.

Welcome back! Hope you are well and feel relaxed and ready to take on Autumn!

This post card wall is amazing. I saw it once over at Monika's and love it!

A chesterfield would be heaven. A nicely worn vintage one in deep cognac leather.. Yum!

Wow…at first I only saw the top of the image and thought it was a message board, then saw it is a whole wall?! Amazing, love the texture and colors, very dramatic! Janell

I think that the postcards are a great idea for a smaller room. In this pic I would have much rathered a chesterfield in a more viberant color like a red. The current color makes it drown in the postcards.

Welcome home! I love the postcard wall idea, but I feel like it needs a finished edge to feel more chic than crazy chaotic. Maybe just nail mitered molding that would slightly overlap your collection? It would feel like a giant frame.

Thanks for the welcome back, all! I've missed you all too.

Shannon: Damn. Dust. I hadn't thought of that. Hmmm . . .

erin: Something to reign it all in is a good idea. I could see the whole thing getting totally out of control very easily. :)

Gorgeous wall, and it happens to have my favourite sofa design. great colour too.
Since I’m a kid I have this habit to have images pinned/glued on my walls. Funny enough I posted about it yesterday.

why the heck not?! do a living room wall in your decades old collection and when you tire of looking at it, when there's too much dust, down it goes! so what?!

and I couldn't agree more!

Welcome back :) A whole wall of postcards gives me a headache (and I don’t even want to think about dust…) but I like the idea of a smaller size for the office, or the kitchen, or anywhere else you like. I do collages of my favourite holiday snaps on photoshop, then have them printed and framed – it’s a lovely way to remember happy memories.
