I am way ahead of what I thought I would manage - and I am so pleased with it.
The plates were a gift. It was actually these that started off the project - I could not put them up on the wall until it was stripeed and re-painted. I bought the wall paper a couple of years ago and had just not got the bottle to start it.
The dark purple and gold have always been accents in the room - but I have changed the wall colour from light pink to the lilac. I was a bit worried if it would match the colours - but it all tones in very well. I was going to continue along that same big wall - but I think I will work the other way - under the window and behind the sofa. That way I won't see the mess so much!.
