Thanks! I really like the stencils too. For a while I was going to get some brown paint and do a craftsman stained glass blocking pattern but since my house is right in that transition period from Victorian to Bungalow and has conflicting styles in the house because of that I decided to go with a damask/brocade design instead.

I have a Craftsman but I never pay attention to the style of my house when I decorate. I'm just too into Victorian and anything that comes close to that style. The only reason I bought the house I own was the price for the amount of space was too good even for Pittsburgh.  

I really enjoy seeing your rooms.

I love the stencils! I used to think "eww stencils, kountry with a K!" But you prove how awesome it can look and work into many styles. Great job! I also think that adding a dog and baby would be funny, and a cute way to have "family portraits" in a original way. Better than stickers on the back of a mini van, that's for sure! Cheesy

I love your kitchen! It's just so cheerful.
I painted the dining room in my old house a very similar color, also with bright white trim and I loved it too. (and still miss it!) It's amazing how such a bold color makes a room feel vibrant instead of small, isn't it?

Thanks for the compliment on my other rooms! We were discussing last night how we should add more victorian touches to the house.

Love the stenciling and the paintings.
Great room!


I had the paintings in our old house and I was dying to find a place for them here Smiley

I know, right? I kept thinking that stenciling would be a great idea but I couldn't think of how to make it look right and not country bumkin. The other night my husband said the stencils looked a bit like angry squid dancing in our dishes. Score! Cheesy

As soon as I cut out the first wall I got really anxious that it would look horrible but I'm really pleased with the cozy warmth and drama of the color. I also like how even thoughit is really bold its not overwhelming. I promise it isnt!

I love the room!  I am planning on an apple themed kitchen and this gives me great ideas Smiley 

Have you by chance thought of painting the black crumbcatchers under your burners red?  My hubby gave me the idea of using engine paint which will leave it shiny red and cures with the heat of the burners instead of peeling like regular paint?

Beautiful job!  Red is such a hard color to paint with all those coats.  I love the stencils on the open shelf and your pictures you painted, too.
