it is no secret
I have a long-term love affair with ROSES
I love ROSES in the garden
I love ROSES in the house
I love ROSES on the wall
I love ROSES on the mantel
I love ROSES in the barn
I really love ROSE dishes
I still remember buying my first ROSE plate
about 25years ago
and I still have it
(of course, I do)
and what that did to my decorating style.
Besides proving that I have spring fever,
"Where is this going," you ask?
Last year, when I began my kitchen makeover
I went from this
lots and lots of ROSES
beige walls, neutrals,
more farmhouse primitive
the ROSES were packed away...
you know what?
I missed them.
One day, while in the bathroom
this inspired me
My own bathroom became my inspiration.
It combined the all of the elements that I love
and wanted to include in my kitchen.
VINTAGE-that almost goes without saying
WHITE-lots of it
LACE-a bit here and there
WOOD-to warm things up
PRIMITIVE-a touch but not too country
NEUTRALS-gotta have ironstone and tea-stain, too
ROSES done differently
than I've done them in the past.
not too many
for a pop of color and cheeriness.
I call it
with a titch of victorian.
when doing a room reveal, I show you the big picture
and then go onto the details.
I'm doing this backwards...so you will know what my goals were,
what my loves are, and how I made my choices.
Just show me already?!
Here is the teaser
I'm bad, I know
pinky-promise, the rest is coming.....
