Ok, since my last post about linen got everyone all excited, and the one I did yesterday about how fall depresses me got NOBODY excited, I thought I'd go back to my decor musings.
I'm dying to do grasscloth wallpaper somewhere in my house. The dining room seems like the most logical place.
Nobody really sees my hallway to the upstairs except me and Kathleen, so that's probably out...
...although this little landing looks an AWFUL lot like my stair well...hmmmm....maybe just on that one wall?
I think the little settee and the wood cabinet got me more excited about this photo than the actual wallpaper did:
Do I have a nook? I need a nook!
I like the idea of popping it with color....so perhaps grasscloth in the DR with my red bamboo chairs in there instead of in the kitchen?
Hmmmm....I COULD put it in my bedroom...would look great with what I already have going on in there, don't you think?
Although I would never have the guts to do this myself, I'm loving this Phillip Jeffries

If I had lots of money and a way bigger DR, I'd love upholstered chairs. But that's never happening. That chandelier, however, is sort of what I want to do with my existing POS brass chandelier. My plan is to buy the parts for a drum shade, wrap it in linen, and install it over the brass chandelier--having painted the brass chandelier a fun color first, of course:
It's on my list. My never-ending list. *sigh*
