I got my wallpaper!!!!

Yay!!! We're (my husband) is hanging the wallpaper as I type!!! I should be packing but had to let you all know!!!!
It's going in the breakfast nook of our kitchen (which will have dark walnut hardwood floors installed in a couple of weeks, also courtesy of wonderful husband.):


If you remember, I really wanted Studio Printworks' "Pineapple Petite" but found that it just wasn't in the budget:

I also loved Cotwan & Tout's Botanique Spectaculaire wallpaper & it was also too pricey:

So I started searching & searching for something I loved and found something I like more than any of the others!!! It's a bit more old-fashioned which I really love juxtaposed against the saarinen-style table. ( I found it here)


Here's an image of the same "Etchings Collection" Floral Toile paper in yellow:

I wanted to go black & white so I could switch up my table settings to suit my moods and... because I have black counters & shelf brackets and whitebeadboard:
I'll show after pics as soon as the floor is in!!!
xoxo,
lauren

Love it. It's so much better in black and white... I've been into antique etchings, engravings lately...it's amazing what you see when you remove the distraction of color.

Hi Lauren. All these choices are gorgeous. I'm not usually one for wallpaper but do love toile in b&w or grey tones. Can't wait to see the results.
