I have mentioned before about the itch to change things up a bit in Nanaland. Well last week I got busy.
We love Ray Ellis prints. The one on the left is Suppertime at Cape May. Marvin got that for me when I turned 40. The one on the right is a scene from Savannah, Georgia, Marvin's home town. The Rocking Chairs in the Cape May print have always appealed to me. I had this print in the dining room but I did not really get to enjoy it as we often keep that room dark. I decided to place these prints side by side over the sofa.
You have already seen my dining room but I will show it again.
If you are in the North Alabama area, check out Anderson' s Furniture and Consignments. It is a great local business with lots of great finds.
I was paging through home decor magazines when I saw some pictures of secretaries and bookcases, lined with wall paper. I debated for a while over the style that appealed to me. I considered toile, but I was afraid it would fade into the background. I chose this vintage bird wall paper that was sold on Amazon.
I am not sure if I will keep it in the china cabinet. I just experimented with it there as I had a lot left over.
I can easily remove it and use it to line the buffet drawers. I am going to live with it for a while.
I did not stop in the living room, I moved a dresser in the guest room.
I love making vignettes. I may look for a larger lamp. If a guest wants to read, this lamp is not the best light.
Hope you enjoyed playing house with me today. Sometimes it is fun to shake things up a bit.
