Building the Beehive

Welcome to my first post on this blog! First posts are always so awkward (kinda like first dates, huh?), I'm going to be a bit of a hussy and just dive on in.

So I'm in the process of converting our teeny, tiny, little bedroom into a finely tuned workhorse. I painted it a glorious shade of blue (Hello, Behr's Bleached Denim- where have you been all my life?), ordered a custom closet from Easy Closets, and have schemed and planned and made many many lists and made far too many sketches to be healthy.

I had no idea that wallpaper could make such an impact. I never, ever would have considered using wallpaper in a smaller area like a closet- but I can see why they did it. It looks phenomenal! Therefore, I took it upon myself to try to find the perfect wallpaper. I wanted one that was a bit whimsical, a bit brighter than the base room color, and have a good variety of colors to pull from.

And I discovered this:
Norwall Wallcoverings

How could I not fall in love?


  1. I'm so in love with it. I'll be here Wednesday. I can't wait! I've never hung wallpaper before- should be an interesting learning experience!
