a simple change

So a few weeks ago I blogged about the prints in my kitchen that I had made a few months before. Well, little did you know but that same day I changed them :)

A few years ago I discovered Farrow and Ball wallpaper and I have never been the same since. I mean they are b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! Unfortunately, they are way to expensive for our cheap small design budget but I did end up ordering a few samples for a client. I thought they would arrive as little swatches like fabric but to my surprise the samples came in large sheets. For years I have been staring at these beauties. After looking at the flower prints for a year I decided I needed a change and remembered my collection of wallpaper samples. I ended up swapping out the flowers for the beautiful wallpaper and ordering a few more samples of my favorite patterns in different color ways to mix in. Farrow and Ball if you are reading this I promise to one day use your paper in my home that is right after I win the lottery or if you want to give me some for free. I am not to proud to beg :) Since the kitchen is getting a redo the frames had to move so here is their new home.

Someone please order one of the above papers and send me pics. Wait maybe don't do that because I might cry in envy :)

As you can see from the above pics we still have to stain the stairs, paint the banister and get a new light but I am a little to tired to start another project so in the meantime I am hoping these new beauties distract guests from the mess. Since I already had the frames {read about them here} and the wallpaper samples were free this project cost me $0.00 :) Gotta love that!

disclaimer - I was not paid to say any of the above from Farrow and Ball I just love their papers and wanted to share this fun free project.
