To Wallpaper or Not To Wallpaper?

Tuesday, November 28, 2017
I love this space of our new 1955 ranch, which is original to the home, but has been painted, cabinet doors have been removed, and hardware has been changed out (I would venture to say the original 1955 hardware wouldn't have been worth saving anyway).  But this space can be really great, and I am toying with an idea and wonder what you think!  Here is what it looks like now:

I envision finding framed glass cabinet doors at The Rebuilding Center to put back up, but they might take awhile to find and modify.  Behind the cabinet doors, I am wondering about this look:

 Ideas, guys?  This is wallpaper I'm considering—I think it can look brilliant in small spaces, though, such as in Christiana Coop's San Francisco apartment.  I'm thinking about the same beautiful Queen Anne (Ebony) Wallpaper by Rifle Paper Co. for the backing that she used.

And new hardware for the cabinets, a new slab for the countertop (material, still thinking about, but probably wood), and then, of course, the cabinet doors I have yet to find--leaded glass with diamond bevels, hopefully.  Let me know what you think--send those design links my way!  x o ,  Karli
P.S.  Yesterday I wrote a post about refuge.  I love the idea of refuge, the feeling of a refuge, the place where one feels safe, loved, and nurtured.  This morning, Bob Dylan's song, "Shelter from the Storm" was playing in the car on my way to the airport to pick up the kids from their Thanksgiving vacation in California.
"I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form

Come in, she said

I'll give ya shelter from the storm"
--Bob Dylan, Blood on the Tracks, 1975 

P.S.S.  Send your design ideas my way!
