Designer Patti O'Shaughnessy's Favorite Wallpapers Sold in Westchester
Patterns from Osborne & Little, Cole & Son, and more, that make for the perfect accents to family living.
The popularity of wallpapers has moved into the children’s domain. “Children are drawn to color and pattern, and wallpaper is a way to get the most bang for the buck,” says Bronxville interior designer Patti O’Shaughnessy. For those who are timid, she suggests selecting a two-tone paper or a paper in neutrals. “Illustrations are big this year, including a collection from my favorite children’s illustrator, Quentin Blake, for Osborne & Little. Hot-air balloons, birds, metallics, and ’60s retro designs are all big trends.” O’Shaughnessy and her assistant, Stephanie Richards, narrowed down their favorites to just seven. Available at Amy’s Interiors (295 Main St, Eastchester 914-779-1265; amyinteriors-ny.com) and Treasures From the Trade (pattiohome.com).
