But I love Waverly patterns. When I scroll through fabrics or wallpapers, they tend to be the ones I'm drawn to, regardless of what style [Traditional, modern, whatever].
Right now I am so, so, so tempted by a Waverly Fabric to make a duvet cover for my soon to be redone bedroom... it's called Bliss Lemon Drop... a lovely floral on a sunshiney background.
Look what happens when you Google! There is already a bedding set made from it!
And then there's the Waverly Toile wallpaper I used on the Betty China Cabinet:
Well, when I was papering the back of that China Cabinet on my kitchen counter I started imagining putting it up in my kitchen as well. Every time I left the room while it was drying and came back in I just swooned it looked so perfect there, the background matches almost exactly the color of my cabinets and as you can see it fits the overall scheme in there.
So I taped a piece up to see if it would work as a backsplash. Nope. The pattern is too large.
So how about if I put it above the bead board wallpaper in the banquette area of my eat-in area of the kitchen?
I would add a strip of wide molding between the toile above and the beadboard below, about where the beadboard ends right now.
Here's how it looks taped up there:
When I look at this I think 'YES!'
Whaddya' think? Here's the kick, I have less than a roll of this to do the entire area. Hmmmmm
And here's a new project that I just picked up. Not sure if it will be simply cleaned up and left as is... or painted [I'm seeing off white].
I think my garage may officially be stuffed to the gills... I dunno that there is even room for me to work in there. Time to move some items on....
