Pretty Pretty Paper
This is the wallpaper we've chosen for our downstairs bathroom. Its called Hula Hula by Crezana designs. I love it so much! Its a bit spendier than we would like. Okay, a lot spendier. A LOT LOT. So spendy that I'm not even going to tell you the price. But its SO darned cute.
The hubs and I had a long talk last night about whether or not we could afford it. I'm in charge of the dollars and I run an extremely tight ship, moneywise, and most of the renovations and home purchases we've done so far have been accomplished on the cheap. Initially, paying so much money for a design item was hard to fathom. It's not going to support the structure of the house or cook a meal or chill beverages or run water to the house. What it will do, is sit there and look pretty and make us happy every time we see it. After much discussion and a lot of math, we decided it was worth it. Its just so gorgeous and it fits our personality so well.
It is grasscloth so it has a fabric backing which makes it a bit like a very heavy upholstery fabric. Maybe a bit less flexible, but probably sew-able. In fact, the Crezana blog shows some throw pillows made with it!
Aren't they just the ginchiest? I wonder if I could make something cute from the scraps...? A wallet maybe? Here's hoping for scraps!
So who else has gone mad and purchased something totally non-functional for your home despite the cost because you just loved it so much? We can't be the only ones?
