Victorian wallpaper Wallpaper?! Isn’t that what people are ripping off the walls of their newly bought homes? Their homes that were recently bought from the original owner of 50 years?

How can I put this into words. I beyond love this. This image will definitely be put aside as a reference for when it’s time to renovate my kitchen. Does this kind of kitchen inspire you? This is my dream! The flowers add a lot of beauty, too.
