The little section of neighborhood we are moving into is called Fruitdale. Our house is a 1950′s era Ranch Style home. I think that one reason we were able to get the home is that people cannot see past wall paper. Everyone says they can, but in reality, when you are face to face with green bandana, it is a whole different story. When I saw the pictures of the house on line, I did recoil a bit. At the end of the day, it is just wall paper. When I actually saw the house, the patterns were not nearly as bad as I had prepared myself for. Let me show you:
Here is some from the hallway
The flowers are about dime size, so the paper reads like a a polka dot.
In the dining room, we are sporting a green floral.
That’s the corner. When you see it in person, it reads like a bandana pattern.
That one is growing on me. (don’t laugh)
Then, in one of the bathrooms, there is an old school yellow floral.
There it is. I have not had a favorable response to this.
Nope. That bathroom will be one of the first to be updated. Yeeeeeiks.
