I saw this kitchen decorated with old book pages on Brunch at Saks (don't you love Brunch at Saks?) and was a little loopy for it. Then I visited Watson Kennedy in Seattle where they had this fantastic wall and decided I would have a vintage paper wall in my house.
This was a wonderful experience! I loved reading the ledgers from the Lodge. The dates ranged from 1910 to 1972 and the handwriting was gorgeous! The man who owned the personal
log book filled in his activities--very simple--March 20, 1921: Went to Wichita.
I made a headboard with a drop cloth so it would be very plain against the busy, busy wall. I put the bedding I have back on the bed for now but it definitely needs to be more plain. Any ideas for colors or fabric? What about for side tables and lighting?
Looking back at the first picture I noticed the badminton racquet with the mirror in it. I have two of those that I got from my friend Amy and I love the idea of making one or two of them into a mirror.
I am excited to finish this space but I felt like sharing the wall now.
Thanks for stopping by!
