DR Mantle Artwork
Well, by now you might think I'd have this done. (see old post below).
But when we arrived in May, the painters had painted the DR white by mistake, and I told them to hold off. It has been white all summer. I am worried about blue because you can see into the LR from the DR (despite a pocket door). If I picked up the blue from the blue wallpaper in the LR, it would be a very bright even juvenile blue. If I went with a grey-er blue, it would not work with the LR IMHO.
So, I've done nothing. I never got around to checking out the local source for oyster plates for over the mantle.
Except, I picked out this fabric for the (16 foot long) window seat cushions). I will have just a few pillows in each corner, TBD. I like the mood of the fabric and I think the colors work w my LR.
Sooooo, anyway, I can't even remember how I came across this today, but I really like it. I like the colors, the theme, the sense of motion. I know it is almost iconic, but i still like it. I might frame it in a birds eye maple? thoughts?
