Adding some bunting

I am always thinking of new ideas for my future non-existent store or the next show and what I can add, change, make to spruce up my display etc.

I love bunting. I really love the white plain style. I am a big fan of Downton Abbey along with many of you I am sure. I love the large parties they throw and the decorations that are shown of that time. Now while I am planning to show you the real life Downton Abbey home we visited on our trip tomorrow I thought I would share some of the inspired decorations I made.

I bought some twill tape at our local fabric store, chopped up a bunch of white linen triangles and got to sewing. I obviously don't have anywhere to hang them for retail purposes right now so I decided to add them to the spare bedroom for fun, and then of course busted out the camera and took some photos, after I tripped and fell into the wall from being lazy and using the wrong stool to hang the bunting.

it is also that time of year when i have to bring my plant hoard into the house. this room is cool enough in the winter to not suffocate my plants but gets a lot of light so many of my plants get to laze away their days now reaching for the bunting.

I am starting to debate paint colours for this room. It was painted when we first moved in 5 years ago and always comes off as a purple beige in the afternoon light. The floor is white and I love it so the walls are going to be a plaster grey colour me thinks.

Have a great hump day all,



  1. I am really loving the bunting in your guest room and I suspect it's going to appear in my master! :)

  2. I love bunting too! I made a huge one out of chipboard for the booth that my husband and I will be opening. Your room stying is gorgeous! a you really have the gift for making rooms interesting and full of texture. I could study your photos all day!

  3. Love your home Meg and the bunting is adorable! We use bunting banners at all of the vintage shows that we participate in, it adds just the right amount of loveliness, we feel! We are just finishing a remodel for a client and used Requisite Gary SW 7023 (Sherwin Williams) love how it looks in the light and the client is happy too. The color is a gray with a little taupe in it, one shade lighter is Alpaca SW 7022. I sure you will find the correct color for your room. Best of luck!!


Leave me a note. I'd love to hear from you.
