Lets chat about wallpaper for a bit. When people think about wallpaper, pattern, color and large graphics come to mind. Wallpaper now a days has changed so much. It is so easy to hang and to take down. No more wallpaper glue and hanging tools. It is just a simple wet with water and stick in place. I believe every home should have a room with some wallpaper or a wall covering. It breaks up the trend of every room just being painted.
I wanted to show you some interiors that have Grass Cloth also known as Sea Grass wallpaper. Grass Cloth is a wallcovering that is one of my favorites. I really like the texture and natural element it can bring to a room. Which many rooms are screaming for. It is an easy thing to add in a more traditional home. But yet it can still work in a more soft modern home.
I really like the color choices that it comes in. Which leaves room for so many options.

In this 1920′s Singer Sheryl Crow’s home, I love the bright white walls. I think it would look so amazing if it was done with White Grass Cloth wallpaper. I know Sheryl was probably wanting to emphasize the natural clay texture. The whole room would be warmed up a little if that arch wall was with white Grass Cloth. I imagine you can paint grass cloth wallpaper with a texture brush, I’m curious to see if it has been done before.

I have been on a mint kick lately, look at this MINT grass cloth that I found for you! Or check out all the color ways it is offered in! HERE

I love mint paint colors and here are some of my absolute favorite colors when it comes to mint.
Remember mint can be a tricky color so be careful and make sure you try some samples before painting a whole wall.
Creme de Mint – Benjamin Moore
Irish Spring – Benjamin Moore
Fresh Mint – Benjamin Moore
Tropical Freeze – Devoe Paint
Elf Hat – Devoe Paint
Any of these mint paint colors are great as an accent on just a single wall, or I like using them in a smaller room too. They brighten the room and can help a room feel cooler in the summer. Let me know if you have a favorite Mint paint color.
Once a year in my little town there is a peony flower stand that opens up around the end of May!
They sell Pink Peonies for $4 a dozen! I have been buying them for the past four years. It is one of my favorite things of Spring. The stand always opens up when the peonies are starting to bloom. I never know for sure when that is because its normally a different week in May every year. Well on Friday afternoon after I picked Alliya up from school, I had that feeling. The feeling to drive by the street that always had the stand, because I just knew in my heart that this was the day they would be out selling. Well I was so happy to see that my feeling was right and I grabbed a few dozen!
Aren’t Peonies pretty amazing with their hundreds of petals and huge blooms!
I thought I would post my vase full of them, that are on my table at the moment. If you live in Utah County email me and I would love to give you the address of the stand! When I went they even gave me a private tour of the Peony Patch. It was rows and rows of pink peonies. I have never seen anything like it in my life! I am happy to report that they will have White Peonies come out in a few weeks!
Since I was on the flower mood I trimmed some blossom branches like I talked about HERE! I just love these blossoms because they look like mini hydrangea clusters. I will say since they are blossoms they did give me a little allergy attack this weekend, but they were
totally worth it!
I think this year was my favorite Mother’s Day of all! It may have something to do with that this year all three of my children are old enough to smoother me with kisses and love! I got spoiled with loads of homemade cards and pictures that I will tuck away so one day I can look back and feel like I have my little ones again.
This year we hosted a Mother’s Day Lunch and invited my parents over. My husband did all the cooking and surprised me with a gorgeous salmon and all of my favorites! But of course I’m not one to just sit back and watch, so while he was cooking I whipped up this table! I love having candle light for any special party or meal. Even if it’s in the middle of the day, Why Not?
I had a beautiful and perfect Mother’s Day! I am so happy and feel so blessed to have three amazing children that have changed my life forever! My Favorite things in the world are playing, dancing and singing with my children. I hope all of you had a lovely day as well…
