Flowers on the Wall

Another wall done!

A wallpaper window in the bedroom wall.

The wallpaper design is by Amy Butler - it is the Lacework Sunset Terracotta Wallpaper - warm. sensuous and delicate with round floral mandalas, you can see that Mrs Butler has a regular yoga and meditation practice (I read in a recent Mollie Makes interview that she meditates every morning for 30 minutes and has the Yoga Journal on her bedside table). The wallpaper is just beautiful and I don't get tired looking at all the pretty details.

For the border I had different ideas, I wanted it pink (of course), I considered a frame, but was afraid that it might fall on my head at night. As it turned out, I couldn't find anything in pink, neither in the local DIY stores nor online. For some moments I thought that fabric lace might be an option, complimenting the lace design of the wallpaper.

I compromised on a self adhesive whitish border with some ornaments.

Sweet dreams, in case I ever get tired from looking at that wallpaper...
