Okay I tried the play on words, but let’s get real it’s been a long-ass Tuesday and this just ain’t workin. What I’m trying to say here is that I’m excited about the fact I will be adding a small little splash of chintz into our kitchen.
The Schumacher Pyne Hollyhock chintz to be exact:
As any blogger will attest, 2014 is the year for granny chic and I’m no exception. This fabric is absolutely gorgeous in person with slight hints of lavender mixed in with the ivory and charcoal. I got a great deal on a yard from an amazing Etsy seller, Aurelia6311. She’s the bomb y’all. I’m getting the roman shade made locally and will be sure to post pics when it is up!
To coordinate with that fabric, I’m playing around with the idea of covering four of these Overstock chairs:
With a black ticking stripe and I think I found the perfect fabric:
It’s Schumacher’s Wesley Ticking Stripe in “Ebony.”
The final touches for the kitchen include some rugs, a china cabinet or sideboard of some sort and a new light fixture for above the table. Given our “charming” low ceilings, we have to find something with pretty petite scale without a huge drop/canopy. Some of my current favorites include:
Aerin Lauder can do no wrong. Except sell her stuff at outrageous prices.
Seriously. Killing. It.
I kind of love this pagoda lantern to sass things up with a bit of red.
Love, love love this piece I found on Horchow.
