Summer Flowers Blooming and Bedroom Beginnings

 






My flowers I planted by the front door of our condo building are doing really well.   The colors this year are so vibrant.  I love that I can still have a little fun with flowers.





They are filling in nicely and make our entry to the building very welcoming.




I have been toying with maybe putting up some wallpaper on the one wall where the alcove window is where my desk sits.  With all the white in the room I think I will add some pattern and texture to all my whites.  The sample of the paper I am going to hang is on the wall.

It has a white background with light black and gray shaded soft roses.

I am thinking the pattern will be too much to do the other walls above the wainscot but maybe just the one wall for a focal point.  Hoping to get more done on the bedroom this weekend.  

Our kitchen cabinet doors finally arrived so hoping to get those up this weekend too.  We also have light fixtures to hang.  Then I think most of the projects will be done.  Then I can show you the before and afters of each room.

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

  3. Hi Kris!

    You have been working so hard and now, things are really blooming, literally! That is such a gift to have the chance to add your gardening touch with the flowers. The wallpaper choice is gorgeous and I know you will do a great job of balancing out the wallpaper with the wainscoting - it already looks amazing. I miss you!

  5. Beautiful as always. Is this the retirement home? Do you miss having a yard? Your yards were beautiful as well. Maybe put the wallpaper behind the bed? I think it might be to busy on the window side?

  11. I know you're so relieved to be almost done! And you get to plant pretty flowers and not have to deal with the rest of the yard. Best of both worlds. I love the wallpaper. You have fantastic taste.

  12. I love it Kris!! Soft and elegant. I'm thinking of wallpapers our two bathrooms in the many part of the house.


    Your flowers are stunning as always. We have had clouds so much again ours aren't blooming big yet. Every summer there's an issue in NJ

    Hugs to the whole crew

  16. Oh, my, that wallpaper is gorgeous!! And the flowers are stunning! So glad you get to garden a little in your new place. That front entrance will always be a showstopper if you decorate it! Happy Saturday, Kris!

  17. Lovely as usual! Those flowers at the front door really perk it up and it's nice you can still putter a little bit with flowers. I would miss that. And the wallpaper is gorgeous.. you always pick just the prefect thing. Once you're all done, then what are you going to do? I don't think you can just sit still and have no projects!!! How is Terry's arm doing. Will he even be able to put up kitchen cabinets yet??? I hope it's healing well. I like that name one of the other gals gave you... "Junk Chic condo"... perfect! xoxo Marilyn

    Know you are thrilled things are coming together more and more. Worth the wait isn't it.... Hope you and Terry are loving your new home and new neighbors as well.

  20. Kris, the flowers look absolutely beautiful with the color of the door. Is this just an entry into your part of the condos or is it the main entry. I bet all your fellow neighbors can't believe how lucky they are now that you have moved in. Love the wallpaper. It looks like a beautiful contrast to all the white without being overpowering..Happy June..xxoJudy

  21. Kris I am SO jealous of those flowers! Absolutely gorgeous. I've planted petunias in containers all over the patio area and they're growing, but nothing like yours! What lucky neighbors you have! I have a fear of wallpaper (crazy I know) so I can't wait to see how it turns out:) xo Kathy

  22. They are so lucky to have you doing the flowers!!! They look gorgeous! I think the paper on the one wall will be just the perfect touch. I still love wallpaper. Am so anxious to see everything completed. I know you will be too. What will you do with all of your spare time? LOL

  23. Hi Kris,
    First the flowers at your entrance are stunning!! You’ve got quite the green thumb. I’ve loved following your new home transformation and can’t wait to see the wallpaper hung!

  24. Your flowers are looking very beautiful Kris! I'm so glad that you are able to do that and it does really make a difference to coming up to that entrance now. I am also loving that wallpaper and think that it will look perfect on that wall, as I'm guessing that you have some wonderful plans for your bedhead wall! Really looking forward to seeing the completed pictures. I can't believe how hard you have both worked to get it all done so quickly. Take care both of you, hugs Gilly

  30. Love the flowers - they look so full and lush!! Love the wallpaper you have picked out, too. I think it will be perfect on that wall. Can't wait to see all your before and afters.

  31. I agree with the others about the flowers...your neighbors must be so happy to have their entry door looking so pretty and inviting since you've moved in!! You are remarkable when it comes to growing such large, and full annual container gardens!
    The paper for the bedroom wall is perfect, Kris. Just the right amount of subtle color for the white in there! Putting it on the window wall will be great in the winter when there is NO color at all coming in from the outside. Have a super week!! xxoo

  33. The blooms are beautiful! Everything is looking so beautiful and I love that sign with quote by Mother Teresa. I hope your week is wonderful to you. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  34. The flowers are so pretty and they look great to the entrance to your building. I like the wallpaper you chose for the accent wall in your bedroom. It sounds like everything is coming together. I hope you have a nice week.

  35. Your flowers are beautiful ... as always! I absolutely love the wall paper you've chosen. While I'm not a big fan of accent walls (paint or wallpaper), I've seen some decorating shows where they put wallpaper on the ceiling. I'm sure it involves a lot more labor, but it looks wonderful in the end!

  37. The wallpaper is perfect, I love the pattern and the flowers at the front door look amazing. I bet they didn't realize they were getting a pro gardener when you offered to put some flowers there. They really take the front of the building up a notch! xxoo
