WallpApeR LovE

The wallpaper is up!!! After trawling through the Internet trying to find suitable designs...... 3!!!!!!!! came into my possession in less than 3 days... the debate was all over and the pasting table was out before we'd had breakfast!!...... no time to read the directions on how to mix wallpaper paste.....no time for toast!....... no time to find that thingy with the bubble in that tells you if its straight!! I really couldn't contain myself, there I was with not one but three fabby mcfab wallpapers....... so instead of choosing one I went for all of them.



The middle one is my favourite, I love gingham and although this probably should be sitting on a wall next to a little fifties dresser full of cups and plates in a kitchen, I love it in its little bedroom collage mode, the right one is very retro and really bright and the left one I wasn't as keen on but with its little friends it has shone!!! The fact that I found this one in a funny little shop where the only way of getting my hands on it were to use a golf club to hook it while almost disappearing into a pile of (not very nice) vintage fabrics and old Christmas trees makes me love it a little more.



So here it is in all its glory, my first attempt at wallpapering !!! I almost wanted to sleep the other way round so I could gaze at its jumbly,patchwork loveliness....I also found my much coveted Charlie Browns pathetic Christmas tree this weekend ( again procured with the golf club!) but that's for another day I think :)


Have a lovely week x x x x x x

  3. Well the are blues so what can I really say, but good on you for going for all three! Turn the bed round so you can look at the wall paper! That is what I am going to do when I finally get round to doing our bedroom...have the wall paper on the opposite wall to the bed.

  5. The colours are gorgeous. The one on the left reminds me of the wallpaper in my bedroom when I was a teenager. If I squinted at it I could see a bear's head in the flowers!

  8. I love what you have done what you have done with those three wallpapers. Can't decide which one you like best, use all three. I love the sleeping fabric owl at the bottom of your post too. Is it a cushion?

I love adding to my room, it makes me want to spend more time in it just staring, just mesmorisng and dreaming and eventually leaving it with the joy of what it will bring me later when I jump into bed xox thanks for sharing
