It's done and I L.O.V.E. love it!
I knew I was excited to see how Chinoiserie would look in my dining room, but it turned out more bewitching than I had even imagined. It changes the entire feeling of the room and just brings it to life.
Since I am a true believer in imitation being the sincerest form of flattery, (you better not blog if you don't intend to be copied), here are the details for this paper.
Carlisle Company (I believe they are an offshoot of Schumacher)
Pattern number WC4360
Repeat is 25 1/4"
Double roll bolt is 60.75 SQFT
It is a nice wide roll, 27", which covers a big section at a time.
OK, enough chitter chatter, here are the photos!
I've included some close ups of the arrangements as well.
The window with the topiary looks out to the backyard and the pool. The window with the daffodils looks over the pasture with huge evergreens in the background. it really has the best views.
I did a wall closeup so you can see the detail.
Stella insisted on being in every photo!
The blue fabric on the chair and the blue in the framed prints picks up the pale blue in the wallpaper perfectly. I still have frames and pictures stacked in the window because I can't bear to cover the wallpaper and put them back up! I think they will find homes elsewhere.
I am also resisting curtains, but because this is a south and west facing room I am going to have to do something. Ideas???
Directly outside this window is a little kitchen garden. they rusted arbor that you see through the window leads through a fence into the pool area.
She thinks she owns the place!
Cherry blossoms, synonymous with spring!
This rectangular planter is one I ordered from Tina over at The Enchanted Home. She has a new online store with fabulous items. Check it out, http://www.theenchantedhomeshop.com/
Again, larger shot.
I put Dolly the dress form in the photo because I am getting ready to do a window display downtown again. To see the previous one I did at Christmas click here, http://livingwithlis.blogspot.com/2011/11/holly-and-boughs-on-dress-form.html
I will post photos when the window is completed.
