It is a rainy spring day here, but I am admiring all the green outside my window. It's gratifying to see the buds blossoming and the lush carpet of green in the grass and trees. I wanted to carry that cheerful spring feeling into the house using some vintage floral wallpaper and fresh lilacs.
This fabulous cabinet door from Sandi's space at the At Home with White event offered a nice way to showcase the wallpaper. Here is the front of the door displayed on my desk, featuring the pretty applique Sandi added:
Fresh lilacs from one of our bushes added fragrance to the room...
I knew this terrific vintage wallpaper I got from Judy at French Laundry would look romantic on the back of the cabinet door. I got the idea after seeing a fabulous wallpapered piece over at Rachel's blog.
For a temporary change, I simply taped the wallpaper to the back of the cabinet door and turned it around:
Changing out the accessories a bit gave the desk a whole new look:
I love how the bottom of the door curves:
Some fresh white lilacs were added to the mantel...
...and to the bedside table, luring me to sleep:
Small details such as these help to add cheer and embrace spring.
Sharing with Kathleen's cheerful White Wednesday!
