Today Mr Nylon is looking relaxed and worry free.
You may remember when we last left Mr Nylon (quite some time ago) he was in despair over the chaos in his kitchen. (He never did get that coffee he was after.)
Finally the decorator has been by and transformed the kitchen to look more like the country style dream Mr Nylon's wife Silky had in mind.
Decorators tip: The picture rail is made from a piece of wood with lace glued onto it, then painted.
The decorator has a penchant for gingham...and blue...but was unable to procure enough of that beautiful blue gingham wallpaper to do the whole room. Fortunately the blue in the ginham worked perfectly with the previous wallpaper at the top of the walls. (I always thought that the top wallpaper was perfect for the kitchen but it was a little too drab for my liking.)
It looks like Silky is getting the butlers sink she has always wanted! Bri would have installed a dishwasher but the likelihood of one being constructed in the next decade is very slim. He is standing where the new oven will go...it's been under construction for about 9 months now.
It was a challenge to find something just right for the cupboard fronts...it took many hours of searching and experimenting to find this gorgeous print. It came from the back of a wonderful Mary Englebreit card sent by Katie. The print was just the right scale.
As you can see there is still plenty of work to be done. But the good news is the decorator has almost made it to the end of the school holidays...another week and she will have some TIME to finish the job!
