Remember this? My mother’s loveseat?

Nice, sedate, classic right?

Well, this weekend, it’s Auntie Mame came to stay…..on the wall…

She’s pink, she’s showy, she doesn’t care what people think of her, she’s having a great time…..

So here’s the story. I always loved the pictures in design magazines and on Pinterest and stuff of these really cool single flower photos that are giant sized. The problem is that they cost a boatload of money. But 2 weeks off at Christmas allow for enormous amounts of research and I found a place that had reasonably priced wallpaper that you could buy. And what made it even better is that you could use your own photo! So I did! It’s a photo of a rose that I took last summer in the front of the house one morning on my way to work. It’s the perfect pink, with the perfect little amount of apricot on inside!

Here’s a little perspective…

To make your own “fathead” rose or anything else really check out Pixers ! I almost fell off the loveseat when I saw this rose came from Poland! I suppose I can say I have imported European wallpaper in my home!
