lisa bengtsson

based in stockholm, designer lisa bengtsson has just launched a collection of wallpaper called 'the family'. a recent graduate of the berghs school of communication in sweden, lisa was inspired by memories and nostalgia when she created her latest series of wallpaper. 'the family' reproduces images of frames to fill the wall with a blank canvas you can use to display your own photos. i prefer its blank state but i love the way they've framed knobs to hang jewelry in the situation shots. you can find more information on lisa right here (be sure to check our her illustrations) and purchase her work through these two sites. [thanks, sara!]

i love the resurgance of wallpaper. it's bringing out such talent in artist who may have formely worked in another medium, that we couldn't swath our walls in!

Is there anything one can do w/ wallpaper besides put it on walls? I was thinking about putting it on the outside surface of kitchen cabinets (or the inside). Any thoughts?

absolutely. i've done a few projects with it at my house:

these are actually using gift wrap (cheaper) but you can easily do the same thing with wallpaper.

you can always cut a sheet to fit a table top and cover it with glass for a patterned top, fill wall molding with it, fill door molding with it, use it to create a folded paper shade for windows, use it to cover journals and books, cover your ceiling in it (have a professional install this), use it to line trays (cover with plastic or coat with water sealant for this project). there are lots of ways to use paper for other things besides walls ;)

cabinets is definitely doable- just be sure to seal the paper properly with a clear varnish after you apply it to cabinets to prevent any water damage.
