For a while now I've been doing some browsing...for wallpaper that is. Yes...I know that I probably shouldn't put too much wallpaper in the house, but I can't help it. I love wallpaper, and I love the way I feel when I spy that certain one. Yes...you know what I mean..the one that gives you a sense of warmth, welcome, cozy, and HOME. I would find a paper, get all excited...sleep on it, then realize that no it's not "the one." But, my search has ended...yes I placed my order, and I can't wait to get started. I haven't quite yet decided where exactly I'll put it in the kitchen...but I know for sure it's going on the wall with the french doors. I'll be posting pictures...but don't hold your breath...not sure how quickly I'll get the project done - ha! I had originally picked out the red rooster paper that I have pictured on my blog, and don't get me wrong...I LOVE that paper...but I thought I'd be too confined with my prints and window treatments...which I like to change often. So, I really needed a "backdrop" - something to add character...but not confine me too much. And here is a picture of the paper. I hope you like it as much as I do. It's a gold and cream check pattern.
Ok, items number two - heee......I always go through the "plate" aisle at any store I visit. It's hard to find nice plates to hang on the wall...you have to find just the right ones to group over a picture or display on a wall....and yesterday was my lucky day. I found these lovely red plates...the colors match with my colors...olive green, red, golds...that's what's in my living room, dining room, and kitchen. Sooooo I came home with this set of three....and I have about four different places I can hang them....I can't decide, they look so pretty everywhere I put them - ha! I originally thought I'd hang them in the foyer not too far from the bench....but then I had them setting on the counter in my kitchen...and they look so pretty there too on the soffit. Agh...Anyway, take a look at these pretty plates. I took a close up so you could see the detail a little better, and the red is just perfect!
do you see the butterfly?
