  1. Oh - I love the calligraphy stripe wallpaper! (I love the Arles linen too, but I'm trying to train myself to only covet things I can afford - I don't think it's going to work though, do you?)

  2. Sarah- I love that wallpaper too! And I don't think only loving things you can afford is going to work either! I bet it doesn't work for anyone else too! :)

  3. What great finds! First off, I didn't know Ballard Designs sold wallpaper (I'm going to have to check their site out again)...second I love what you found as an alternative to the Robert Kime.

  6. So clever and resourceful Jennifer! I especially love your Kime sub. BTW: I just added some needlework chinoiserie panels (spotted at Interiors Mkt) to that related post. They look like something you would like :)

  8. I love this kind of comparison! Because my clients often can afford what I cannot, but that doesn't mean I don't crave it! It's nice to know one can get the "look" without breaking the bank!
