Waverly, why do you tempt me so?

It may not be the most expensive wallpaper and fabric in the world, no Brunschwig and Fils or Schumacher, or Farrow & Ball, ... you know the names.

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....
