Bee happy ...... pick wallpaper

I visited the Cath Kidston store in York a few months ago and got some wallpaper samples while I was there.

I was picking a pattern for the dining area of my kitchen and couldn't decide which paper to go for so I wrapped the papers around canvas and put them on the wall.  
 After deliberating for several weeks I have finally decided which paper to go for, the antique white rose pattern on the left.

While I have been deciding the canvas pictures have looked great on the wall.  When I wallpaper I will moved these canvas pictures around the corner into the utility area.

I think I may use the blue rose in the middle for the wall bebind the bed in the master bedroom, haven't ordered it yet, may change my mind .....
I have placed my order but the paper is out of stock at the moment due in at the beginning of March.  So excited .....


  1. Beautiful papers and great choice, I love the white and the blue rose prints, I have the blue rose print fabric in my house just awaiting for me to find an item worthy of the cath kidston make over! Have you ever been to Bicester shopping village? They have a cath kidston outlet shop - its very dangerous and everything being reduced makes the credit card ache! xx

  2. Ohhh... I just love that wallpaper is back in vogue. I used to live in Twyford, Berks, so I would pop to Bicester shopping village at the weekend... very dangerous... especially the White Company outlet store. Next time I'm back in Blighty I'll have to visit the Cath Kidston store too. Lx

  3. We love Cath Kidston and wish she had a store here in the US! These all are lovely prints and what a hard decision it must have been! Either print would look beautiful though.

    Have a lovely day,
    Laura and Michele
