The Collection Of Birds

“The collection of birds are my travels. At each destination I buy a wood, bronze, stone bird, anything the local bazaars sell. I have all gathered at a modest vitrine in my house. I have so much loved my collection, that, after taking pictures of them I then designed each one, then created a wallpaper and overdressed a wall of my living room. Now my thought is making them as a desktop wallpaper and give them to you as a gift.” — Designed by Natasha Kamou from Greece.

Tapping The Maples

“Every year I set up my Christmas village the day after Thanksgiving, and during the fall months leading into the winter, I tend to enjoy the likes of apple cider and maple syrup. The figure set chosen for the month of November are the maple sugarers gathering sap during a light snowfall.” — Designed by Jonathan Shears from Massachusetts.

The Fruits Of Harvest

“With autumn comes the joy of reaping the harvest. It’s a time when the fruits of our labors are materialized into sustenance–”fruits” that bring a sense of warmth and comfort. To me, fall is a time to slow down and sip a cup of cider as we reflect on this joyful time of year.” — Designed by Casey Hehner from United States.

The Little Reader

“Perhaps we don’t realize how important is lighting in a bedroom. Simple decisions like string lights, a cute lamp at the nightstand and a bulb inside a kids tent can make all the difference. A regular bedroom becomes a magic spot for kids to read, play and dream. Let there be lights!” — Designed by Carla Genovesio from United States.

November Trees

“I was inspired by the following quote by Ernest Dowson:


Pale amber sunlight falls across The reddening October trees, That hardly sway before a breeze As soft as summer: summer’s loss Seems little, dear! on days like these.

Let misty autumn be our part! The twilight of the year is sweet: Where shadow and the darkness meet Our love, a twilight of the heart Eludes a little time’s deceit.

Are we not better and at home In dreamful Autumn, we who deem No harvest joy is worth a dream? A little while and night shall come, A little while, then, let us dream.

Beyond the pearled horizons lie Winter and night: awaiting these We garner this poor hour of ease, Until love turn from us and die Beneath the drear November trees.” ― Ernest Dowson, The Poems and Prose of Ernest Dowson

” — Designed by Eve from Latvia, previously lived in Sweden and now in the UK.

Fog In Ca’ Tron

“There’s always fog in the place where I live in and small animals show themselves every now and then. Sometimes it looks a bit creepy so I decided to ‘wallpaper’ how it feels to live there.” — Designed by Renata Biondi from Italy.

“For Diwali each year, Hindus create rangoli on their patios, courtyards, or indoor floors. These are vibrant designs using colored flour, rice, sand, or flower petals. Here’s an e-rangoli to celebrate the Indian new year.” — Designed by dangerbrain from USA.


Clean And Colorful Diwali

“Diwali (festival of lights) is one of the most important festivals of the year in India, and is celebrated in families by performing traditional activities together in their homes.” — Designed by Zanetine Web Design from India.
