As you recall, before I set out on this trip, I was all gung-ho about using Meg Braff's Up in a Tree Bamboo wallpaper in that guest bedroom. I wanted to go for a certain shock factor...something that may make my guests think, "holy crap...you didn't wallpaper your entire room in green trees and paint your ceiling orange sherbet strips and think I would actually fall asleep in here?"
OK, so sometimes I get carried away by the super stylistic rooms featured on pinterest (see my pinterest here). Within the first minutes of our meeting, Lynn casually suggested..."How would that Meg Braff look in your sunroom?"
UPDATE: (PSSSSSST--we interupt this post to announce that Pink Pagoda has just announced on her blog that Meg Braff will be on OKL tonight! )
I contemplated for a moment. Hmmm. I hadn't thought of that. Why hadn't *I* thought of that? I love the idea of the teal blue and the pea green...it's a combination already played out in there in the rug and the sitting chairs and the sofa.
Obviously, that's why I am not am official designer. I'm just ballsy enough at times to "act" like I know what I'm doing. Only I lack the true skill to take that extra step and figure out how to best apply it. That's where Lynne comes in. What a great idea. And I know you are secretly breathing a sigh of relief that you don't have to work around such a bold paper! (hey, there's always the next room. Kidding)
