Do you ever look through your photos and discover a particular color jumps
out at you? Seems like golden yellow was predominant during my Devon days
Photos Clockwise: Discovering a ballroom dance hall - best locally
caught haddock 'n chips - old mossy roof view from our new modern
hotel room - icon at St. Mary's Church in Totnes - the 'Gold Bus' running
between towns - the Devon summer countryside - inside the oldest
Torquay pub - and my English friend Emma's fantastic new kitchen
wallpaper which I want too!
So I searched for Emma's golden tropical illustrated wall covering, but
couldn't find it over here. This led me to other discoveries as only
trolling through the Internet can. Am I planning a wallpaper project?
Not really. Are there beautiful wallpapers out there? Oh definitely.
Are some golden yellow and tropical?
Perhaps not the look for my cottage home - but so gorgeous,
even a bit daring.
. . . . . and I love this green still with a touch of gold.
This one above could be my more classic colorway choice - and I would
use it in in my entry hall which is painted charcoal grey. Maybe just as an
accent on one small wall area surrounding the front door . . . . . . . it would
really liven things up.
. . . . . . or even this one on a white background with that brilliant touch
of gold, plus those beautiful blue birds!
Nothing is written in stone. This idea is going into the
'House Projects' folder. Who knows, on a cold winter day when
the sun is hiding and I have some free time, I just might have the
urge to hang wallpaper which I've not done in many, many years.
Emma, if you read this, just know that I loved seeing your beautiful
new kitchen. . . .and that your stunning wallpaper is keeping me
awake at night, haha!
Well, I'm with you on the Golden color as I do LOVE it.

YELLOW: Health in body and mind, love of man and the sun, connection to the God form.
Lovely images and such an old 1540 pub is unimaginable for the USA. Those are the gems from the Old World that we miss...
As for wall paper, I do recall the efforts made for steaming our bathroom and scraping it for being painted. Only our guest bathroom still has wallpaper. For me it is a lot easier and convenient to clean a smooth, painted wall.
But one can admire other's rooms that do have wallpaper!
Yes I agree wallpaper can be a pain - especially to remove! I do like yellow and, like you, our house exterior is a creamy yellow with white trim. I might consider painting over hanging paper - but right now everything stays as it is - too hot to do any projects, which I'm sure you agree with Mariette!Delete
The very dark grey walls are a bit depressing. The yellow background on the wallpaper, on the other hand, is life enhancing.ReplyDelete
......but in the cold winter months they really are cozy!!!Delete
I think that last wallpaper with the bright blue birds would be perfect in your entryway with the dark gray!ReplyDelete
We don't have any wallpaper on our walls but the yellow one looks lovely. Maybe I should try to wallpaper a feature wall. There's always room for another project.ReplyDelete
Yes, there are some gorgeous wallpapers out there now. Love the ones you are showing.ReplyDelete
I notice I am on a color theme most clearly sometimes when I post on Instagram. It's interesting how that happens.
Those wallpapers are stunning! I (meaning Kent and I ) have not hung wallpaper since we did the black and white toile powder room in the two story house that I had my blog brunch at!ReplyDelete
You know how much I like yellow, and when it is in combination with grey, I find it irresistible - my entire living room is like that, and the wallpaper in your friend's kitchen wouldn't look amiss here :-)ReplyDelete
As for hanging patterned wallpaper, I leave such things to the professionals - I know I would never get the pattern seamlessly on. Also, I know my back and shoulders would not thank me if I attempted to do something like that myself.
Yes, I know what you mean by looking at photos and seeing a certain pattern emerge, a certain colour to be prominent.
My mother always insisted on yellow walls in her kitchen; she said it always cheered her up.ReplyDelete
Yellow is such a sunny colour. I love the wallpapers you've shown. We are planning a major renovation next year when Tim retires and I'm thinking about wallpaper in the entryway. There are so many really lovely patterns out there.ReplyDelete
Gold is such a beautiful warm color! That wallpaper is stunning. And the icon of the Virgin Mary is my favorite one; in fact, I have a copy of it hanging on my wall. Enjoy your wallpaper dreams! You have some lovely choices there.ReplyDelete
Hello Mary, I just left a comment but it went through as "anonymous"....just letting you know that was me...I see Google has changed things again!ReplyDelete
Oh, glorious!! Your friend's and your find are divine and all the colour-ways are delicious.Wallpaper is so beautiful now and if it wasn't that I become frozen with indecision when there is too much choice, there'd be wallpaper all over my place! It was fun dreaming about it all at the time of redecorating.ReplyDelete
ps: And snap!! I've got a charcoal grey hallway, too:)
Mary, I love seeing your stunning photos. I have your charming hometown on my list when I next travel to Europe. As for the wallpaper, YES! I can see this in your front hall. Charming!ReplyDelete
Have a wonderful weekend. Elizabeth@pineconesandacorns
Gold and yellow - such a stunning colour! It makes me happy :)ReplyDelete
Love from Titti
Please read my postReplyDelete
I did Rejani - very nice.Delete
I would choose the dark green or grey wallpaper, but the yellow does look joyous in nature!ReplyDelete
