tweed decorating

The time has come. My pretty kitchen (I hope that doesn't sound boastful, I do love her) has been pleading with me to bring her neighbouring rooms up to snuff and I've decided to comply. I'm pulled in so many decorating directions -- occupational hazzard -- but for this project suitability will be my watchword. The home is a century old dowager in rural Ontario so no Domino razzle dazzle for her. Tweed House will be warm and inviting, she will be linen and wool, flax and cream. She will be fine antiques, she will be not-so-fine antiques. This is the beginning. There, it's official. Samples samples samples......

inside scoop: left side of this photo is blank because at photo shoot time I hadn't decided on what style stool I wanted. I borrowed this one by Magis --  but the store only had one. We took a second version of this shot with the stool on the left, then the Photoshop wizzes at the office knit them togther and voila, there were two, see:

btw: lest you think that I decorate with text, the words on the top right are display text from the STYLE AT HOME article. No stencil letters or peel and stick words for me thanks.
