Here is the wallpaper I fell head over heels for last week. I thought it would leave my mind but it hasn't. I don't know if it will darken the kitchen but it's just for the end wall around the window. I haven't shown it to Husband, probably because I'm afraid of medical implications on his cardiovascular system. It's from the Belle Rose line from Brian Yates and I'm going to order it when I'm done with this post. It's available from Tangled Tree Interiors in the UK.
The wall on the left is where I would put it, next to where the kitchen table now sits. Just a touch of brazen - like siren red lipstick in an otherwise black outfit Well, maybe not all black. We need other color in the kitchen - there is a refrigerator to paper, after all!
Perhaps pink gingham on the fridge.
I'm definitely not a fan of the backsplash but at least it's fairly pale. I'll work on getting better photos of the kitchen. They have these yellow incandescent lights and the ceilings are so high they it's difficult for me to change the bulbs.
And then again, nobody ever went wrong with a polka dot refrigerator, either. We have spent two nights in the house now and it feels like paradise! No more buyer's remorse. I'm at Starbucks now, using their free wifi but I'll try and update soon as painting and other ideas come to mind. Enjoy your week, everyone and feel free to weigh in with opinions and links!
