Gjett hvem som fikk tapetsert i går! / Guess who got her wall wallpapered yesterday??

Min kjære svigerfar kom og tapetserte den siste stripen håndtverkerne ikke fikk tatt pga tapetfadesen. Er utrolig fornøyd med veggen!

My dear Father in Law wallpapered the last strip yesterday, and I'm so excited about the result!

This picture is actually an old newspaper ad that I bought in Antibes, France when I was 19 ten years ago. I bought three cutouts, one from the 30s, one from the 40s and one from the 50s. They're all framed in vintage frames found in different Antique stores. This is the smallest one and is actually from a magazine. The other two you'll see in later posts.

This replica of a painting is in horrible shape and not worth a single dime. For some reason I love the old "wreck". It reminds me of Brudeferden i Hardanger, you can click here to see what it looks like.

When you're not paying for the wallpapering, you can't demand that the job is finished in one day. So wall no 2 and 3 are still bare. Hopefully we'll get them finished by February... And a HUGE thank you to my Father in Law for stepping up and getting the job done!

That wallpaper looks fantastic, and your prints are a nice feature. Can't wait to see it done.

Fy fabian, så lekkert!!!! Jeg ELSKER den tapeten!!!!

Skulle gjerne hatt den i vår felles oppgang, men er nok redd for at naboene hadde fått hakeslepp. De synes jeg finner på mye rart ;-)

Jannicke said...

Så gøy å se!! Nå ble jeg inspirert! Skal pusse opp gangen min til sommeren.. Håper tiden går fort (og den skal brukes til aktiv planlegging!)God dag til deg, og takk for titten!


Så utrolig fint det ble,-nydelig tapet!!!
Lampen kunne ikke passet bedre til i fargene,- som skapt til hverandre og rommet:-)

Kjempe fin tapet..herlig..
Flotte bilder du har hengt opp der og...krever sin kvinne å henge opp noe på ny tapetsert vegg altså...

Ragna said...

Lekkert! Den tapeten gjorde mye utav seg selv om den ikke var i så sterke farger :-)

I have admired this wallpaper pattern for a while, but this has got to be my favorite color of the pattern. It is so soft and beautiful, and looks perfect in your stairway. Is it gray or light blue? I can't quite tell.

Beautiful Living said...

Ness, thank you, I'm just so impatient, things are really going sooo slow right now..

Jannicke, tusen takk! Blir spennende å se hvordan gangen din blir! Og jeg føler at man aldri får nok tid til planlegging, det er luksus!

Lauren, I totally agree, it is fantastic being a mom! And good to hear that I'm not the only one loving that old painting :)

Things That Inspire, I love the pattern as well, it gets better by the day! The color is some kind of greyishly blue. It's called Soft Aqua, which is kind of incorrect. Aqua has more green in it. I would say that the color sample shown on Schumacher is pretty accurate.


The infamous Trellis wallpaper by Kelly Wrestler - You can't go wrong with that choice. It looks soft and very mhm... Scandinavian I have to say.

Beautiful Living said...

Meade, I totally agree ;) I'm preparing a post about the rest of the staircase, which have now been wallpapered (yay!)
