for my bedroom fireplace mantel i like the idea of some stuff on it...
or a little bit of stuff on it..
or, like, one thing...
that fabric covers tile that's not ideal.
and that fireplace is bigger than it looks.
so, there is a lot of mantel space to decorate.
which is why i struggle with what to put on it.
what you see isn't intentional or really even thought out.
i just moved some shit from some other places.
the painting is going and was just up there to dry.
not sure what i'm gonna do up top..
but i DO know what i am going to use to replace that fabric.
this is a wallpaper and a fabric and it's available by domesticate at spoonflower.
andrea and i are email friends and one day i was like...you need to do an affordable version of de gournay's famous, hand painted wallpapers.
and she fucking BLEW IT UP!!!!!
it's called the jenny collection and it's better than i could have imagined.
trust me when i say i asked her to name it de jennay.
i was only half kidding.
there are 3 different "panels" and they come in 5 colorways..
cream, mint, lavender, light blue and blush
lest you think i had anything to do with it, all i did was plant the seed and help her pick colors.
and even then all i requested was the cream and mint.
she would send me early drafts and i would say things like.."FUCK YES!" and "YOU'RE AMAZING!"
so really i was just an enthusiastic cheerleader.
so...go buy some of it.
it's affordable and beautiful.
you're welcome everyone.
