I am in the throes of a kitchen remodel, and it’s beginning to hurt. The work is running late, over budget, and having sparkling new cabinets makes me yearn for new overhead light fixtures and a waterfall of other Things that are out of scope for this project.
Since we have ivory cabinets and are getting grey countertops, I wanted to plan for something with a sense of humor for our updated kitchen, a contrast with the reserved color palette and style. My friend (and Rookie Moms contributor) Karen has a glorious orange stove that screams, “You can’t make me grow up!” and I want a little taste of that in our space, too.
I discovered The Lovely Wall on Etsy and became obsessed. The shop sells vinyl wall decals that can be repositioned whenever you like. The genius is the simple geometric shapes.
While Karen is a liberal employer of wallpaper in the houses she has decorated, I felt gun-shy about choosing wallpaper. I have high hopes that these decals will achieve a similar irreverent vibe.
I ordered mini-triangles in three colors and although the countertops are not in and the painting is not complete, I spent a little time experimenting with my options.
Each set of triangles was $15. Now I want to order different designs for every room!
