It’s Wednesday, which means I must be mulling over last night’s Fixer Upper.
AND . . . yes, I AM!
(These photos are from Joanna’s blog: https://magnoliamarket.com/blog/)
We’re all on board with this charming house’s being awesome, no?
They don’t focus too much attention on their landscaping on the show,
but they always knock it out of the park, + I always love it.
Going to have curves out front
when we finally get to landscaping here at the Dutch colonial.
But I digress.
Let’s go inside:
And . . . welcome to what I am going to call DUELING TILES!
Yes or no?
First, let’s look at the kitchen’s back splash — painted tiles.
Since it’s (my favorite color) blue + vintage looking, I vote yes,
but not a very enthusiastic yes.
I fear they will be out of style sooner or later or I will tire of them.
I prefer the 2nd dueling painted tiles — those on the bathroom floor:
I really love the painted tiles they chose for here.
I think it looks a little like a quilt pattern.
But wait. There’s more.
I wonder how well were you paying attention last night.
Did anyone else notice these stunning botanical prints in the dining room?
(These photos were taken by me, off the TV screen.)
The prints were shown during the evening
when Joanna was finishing the staging of the house.
I was instantly smitten, + not just with the botanicals.
They were framed in such an unusual + interesting way!
Looks like each print was sandwiched between 2 panes of glass.
Any-hoo, at the end of the show, I noticed the prints had gone missing.
In their place, Joanna chose some galvanized metal containers,
with what looks like faux greenery “planted” inside them.
I wonder what she was thinking.
Were the prints too attention grabbing?
Would they have strayed too far from her go-to neutral design?
Maybe that rug might be the only strong item she wanted to use.
(Oh, + of course, that is a gorgeous herringbone brick floor!)
I wish to have said herringbone brick in our front sidewalk!
But I digress, once again.
So, anyway, did anybody else notice those prints?
Am I the only one who prefers the botanicals to the metal containers?
Vote early, vote often!
a. botanical prints
or b. tin containers of faux greenery?
Yes or no: painted tile kitchen back splash?
Yes or no: painted tile bathroom floor?
Thank you for voting,
+ as always, see you next Wednesday for more Fixer Upper chit chat!
