Let me start by giving all creative credit to Katrina via Young House Love. I fell in love with her striped kitchen pass through. A month later, I was sitting on the couch and looked over at this blank archway between our dining and living rooms.
What I saw weeks earlier came back to my mind. Almost immediately, I grabbed leftover paint from my ombre barstool project, measured and taped off 4 inch stripes and got to work. What a huge impact a little pattern and color makes! I think Greek key pattern would also be awesome.
In July Anthony and I finally hung curtains of the proper length, purchased the retro looking mint curio that saves us lots of cabinet space, and hung the collection of green plates on the wall.
Future visions for the dining room include crown molding, and a Martha Stewart inspired coffee station featuring my espresso machine the currently resides on the top shelf of the pantry, a collection of jadeite mugs I have yet to own, and a french bottle drying rack.
What are some of your sources for pattern and color inspiration? Do you have any copycat designs in your home?
I hope your Friday is going swimmingly!
