Before and After

Hope your weekend was lovely!

It's time for the big reveal - I had a lot of fun with my latest switcheroo. We have a little nook in our living room that I had made into an art wall. I've been trying to make our place more of a home, and I felt like this nook was a little too cluttered, with a mis-mash of prints and photos. I still have all of my prints and frames, but I'll be reworking/painting them and moving them to other rooms.

My mom found terrific wallpaper at Home Depot that she bought to line a china cabinet with. It's hard to see the true colour of it, but it's a shimmery pale blue with white dahlias and leaves. I tried to bring a little more symmetry and continuity to the space with a stack of my vintage suitcases on top of my trunk, and a few shiny odds and ends. The print is one of the prettiest ones I've ever found at a big box store - and it's on stretched canvas, which looks really lovely. The colours are very soft, and the nook has a vintage feel without looking "old".

Hope you like it as much as I do! Sorry for the glare and reflections - it's without flash, but our place is super hard to photograph - not much natural light. Enjoy!
