Living Graciously, Artfully, Frugally.

Consciously taking notice of the gifts each day places in our path.

Frippery is on a Roll

Yes, on a roll...
of wallpaper.
How about you?
I am bored to big drippy tears with plain old painted drywall.
I love the creative paneled walls I see everywhere in blogland but...
I crave pattern...
Waverly's new Evolution Collection has me hooked.
Emom pointed out a Waverly ad here and I realized just how happy it makes me to see wallpaper reemerging as a design choice.

I could love this on a wall in a bathroom.

Oh, my entry is crying out for this one!

Now the floral,
I adore but really it just wouldn't fit anywhere in my home.
Maybe inside my coat closet to give a delightful boost each time the door is opened. 

I have been busily and VERY thriftily making some changes to Frippery farmhouse.
I will be giving glimpses over the next few weeks of maximum change with minimal bucks.

Think browns, greys, black and white with hints of palest pink and mossy green.
I also found several rolls of English wallpaper at GW...for the princessly sum of $1 per roll.
Probably circa the 80's.

I just may get brave and paper a wall or two.
Dare me?

Yours in taking chances, P.

Pin It!

The one you are thinking of putting in your coat closet is very much like what I had in my bathroom in another house. It was my Hussy Bathroom.

Pam, I love wallpaper and if I had my druthers, I'd paper every room! LOL
Why do people absolutely hate it, I wonder? Sure do like that yellow damask! Can't wait to see what you are doing in your house! Hurry up and show us. :-) Sue

Pam thank you for the prayers for my grandson!
I say wallpaper every room in your beautiful home! Honey if I can wallpaper anyone yes anyone can wallpaper! Go for it and show us the magic!

Hugs, Dolly

P.S. I am drooling over that black floral paper!
