in art, DIY, my home 0 comments
I’m back, somewhat. I really needed that time away in bed. Asleep, willing away the flu! My energy levels still aren’t back to normal yet and I have this croaky sexy voice thing going..
But I did want to share something I managed to do 2 weeks ago.
I’ve been dreaming of a wall or room in our home wallpapered with these beautiful oriental-esque wallpaper. A Degournay would go so nicely, thank you very much. But when every dollar counts these days, I have to think creatively.
There’s never anything current on eBay Australia and shipping internationally is getting more and more costly.
What I wanted

I’ve seen rooms where smaller pieces of favourite wallpapers have been framed in panels… and they look awesome. This idea has been at the back of my mind for ages…
A few months ago I bought a roll of this pretty wrapping paper and hoarded it. When inspiration struck, I gleefully brought it out and used it.
I wanted to frame it and hang it someplace in our home.
Kinda like this gorgeous piece:
This is mine:
When I went back to the shop to purchase a few more rolls, I was a few months too late! I’ve since discovered that it is the V&A Museum Galleries Series, Chinese Blossom Wallpaper.
I’m trying to locate more.
