Wednesday Design Inspiration: Singerie Style

First of all, I can’t believe it’s only Wednesday… I was really getting used to those short weeks!

Now on to the real topic of discussion: I love a good monkey wallpaper and in my search for images on Google, I found that there’s actually an official name for paintings featuring a monkey motif. Singerie is the decorative use of monkeys, often dressed in human attire and doing human actions, in art and interior design. It first became popular in 18th century France and continues to be seen in design today. Wallpapers such as the ones seen below are such a fun, quirky way to dress up a small space such as a powder room or a foyer.
