Painting my heart out...

I lost the battle of the pink kitchen.  SO watch out house, you are getting heavily infused with pink punches.  This is the current state of my entrance foyer...

Here it was at 5:30 this morning... blue.

I have actually been wanting to do a overscaled De Gournay-esque wall for a while.  I woke up ready.
I painted right over my wallpaper...
Made a little sketch...

and had at it...

At the rate I'm going I should be done tomorrow.
I'll clean it all up and make it pretty for you.

Oh, and how do you like my new dining room chairs I painted white and reupholstered yesterday?
Pink...

That entry is amazing. It is worth losing the pink kitchen battle for that stunning de Gournay looking wall!

I love your blog so much but I've never commented. I was SOOO bummed out for you that you were robbed of your pink kitchen. I actually got angry for you but WHOA MAMA! You are beyond talented and I'm so happy you're getting what you want now! LOVE that wall!

You'll show them! There will be pink everywhere! I have purple everywhere in my house and for now my husband doesn't mind. I plan to enjoy it while it lasts. This looks incredible Danika! The color, the pattern, the scale, love it so much!

Heather Peterson said...

Oh my gosh: LOVE. Incredible. The scale is perfect for your place--smaller would have been too precious. And I'm surprised how much I love the yellow in there. And feeling chagrined that I STILL haven't painted my girls' room after having the paint for, I don't know, 3 or 4 MONTHS???!!! Can't wait to see the finished product.

Wow...is all I have...you are so creative and talented! My husband would kill me!

rouge said...

You are one brilliant, bonkers woman! That wall is wonderful. WONDERFUL, I tell you. 'Just made a little sketch' eh? It would take me weeks and even then it would look dreadful. I'm not sure such stuff can be tuted online - I think it's a matter of talent - but if you think it could, would you consider a tutorial?

Ah-ma-zing. I can't believe you did all of this in a day!

Annie Loveridge Interiors said...

The transformation is amazing - so much brighter and happier. Gotta love some yellow! I really love it; you are very clever. I need to get up earlier.....Annie x.

em said...

That is incredible.

Re: Annie Loveridge Interiors' comment: I wish getting up earlier was the only thing standing in my way of something that amazing.

That looks amazing! I would love a tut as well? Please take close ups of the detail and flowers for all of us who are drooling over your work and talent!!!

Ashley said...

You are insane, and I mean that in the most flattering, respectful way. This is gorgeous!

Are you seriously telling us that you freehanded this?!?! You've got some enviable skills, my dear.

Marissa Waddell said...

This is absolutely amazing! Not that I expected any less of you after seeing your Chiang Mai skills. Absolutely beautiful.

Amber Interiors said...

Ok no wait. I have said this before and I will say it again. If you lived next door to me.....it could get ugly. I would force you to drink bottles of wine and craft all manners of stupid shit...This little stunt your pulling by dazzling the FUCK out of my eyes with this hand painted DeGournay wallpaper is REDONKULOUS.

Naomi@DesignManifest said...

shut the EFF up you are so talented!!!

Adore the wall, the chairs, You.

Kim said...

really stunning! I'm surprised that you didn't prime the switch plates and the intake vent and paint them yellow, too, for an even more seamless look. So very inspiring! how did you live with the blue until now?? gorgeous!
