Ascending into the Clouds: Fornasetti’s Nuvolette

Recently, the fabulously talented Matthew Collins wallpapered the entire stairwell of my house in Fornasetti’s Nuvolette. It is, oh, so beautiful. Something incredible happens when wrap an entire room in wallpaper . . . you are subsumed.


After years of being considered passé, wallpaper has made a huge comeback, especially as feature walls. While these can look great, it usually ends up appearing timid . . . lacking in confidence. You  loose the impact and the transformative quality that wallpaper can bring. I say, commit yourself fully, throw yourself in and paper an entire room. You won’t regret it.


Ahhhh, who knew that some paper stuck to a wall could make me this happy.

Photos are mine.

      Thanks Sue. The paper is incredible. I can see it in the hall from my bed when I wake up in the morning. It is an instant mood enhancer!

    Hi Kate,

    Goodness, it looks beyond gorgeous!
    Maybe add a sunburst mirror and the stairway is completely heavenly ;-)
