CHEAP TO CHIC: MUSING OVER MALACHITE!

Malachite wallpaper in Kristi Bender's foyer with an organic circle table, parrot statues and two matching lamps with black shades

Love this foyer above. It was featured in Lonny Magazine a few months back. This entryway is in the home of my friend Kristi Bender of Wendy Schwartz Design. I've been to Kristi's house and seen this foyer. I fell in love with the green Cole & Sons Malachite wallpaper.  Malachite is a green banded stone...it has been quite "in" as inspiration in design for awhile now...but for some reason I'm seeing it pop up a lot this holiday season.

So today I bring you a CHEAP TO CHIC on all things malachite!

  5. Marvelous malachite ! I used to have custom draperies and a king size bedspread made with a cottton malchite fabric in the70's.I still have a leftover piece of the fabric-too beautiful to throw away.So good to see it in these beautiful room settings. The foyer is stunnig

  6. with Panotne's 2013 color of the year being emerald green this might actually be the newest trend. Although it does remind me a little bit of the 80's kitchens and bathrooms that used that emerald green stone. But I really should keep that opinion to myself because I guarantee I fall in love with it by the time summer hits and I will be suggesting it to all of my clients:)
