Flowers and Stripes

I popped into one of my favourite 
suppliers this morning, 
to find some fabrics & wallpaper for the 
house with the stripes.
These are hot off the press, 
or perhaps that should be "hot off the loom",
and are part of a gorgeous new range this year.
Aren't they stunning?
And speaking of stunning, 
here is how progress is progressing 
on the stripes...
The wonderfully patient painter, Steve,
has now completed the first wall.
And he is still smiling!
He hasn't gone crackers yet!
Every time I walk into this room, 
it is like a burst of sunshine ~ 
so perfect for a house by the beach!
