Hello, bonbons! It's Bee from The Lil Bee, and I'm honored to be your guest host. Like you, I come here for style inspiration—jewelry, design, photography...whatever Deb's got cooking on any particular day. So, I thought I would share with you some of the things that have inspired me in my quest to decorate my not-so-new home.

The first thing I did when we moved from NYC is search for wallpaper. Beautiful, lush, delicious wallpaper. It's inconceivable to put up wallpaper in a Manhattan rental, so for the last decade I coveted the stuff. Florals, toile, ikat, abstract, Baroque... you name it, I needed it.
But there was a problem. Wallpaper is... expensive! And you have to COMMIT to a particular STYLE for a long, long time! I chickened out. I humphed and pouted in frustration. And then... then I discovered the magic of decals.
So, for you, sweet bonbons, I present some of the most darling decals I've found, to date. They can instantly spruce up any space, and they're all quite affordable. Take a look...
Wouldn't laundry day be so much sweeter with a colorful clothing line?
A gorgeous design for a Sex And The City-worthy walk-in closet.
This pretty print* would be the perfect backdrop for reading a book and sipping hot tea.
Here's a stylish substitute to a pricey chandelier.
And for the little bebe...
...or la bambina.
I do hope these designs have inspired you, as well. Thanks for indulging me and have a wonderful day!
