    That’s gorgeous. Makes me want to run home, paint my outdated hutch and get on with decorating things. What a find :)

    Love it! I used Marimekko fabric prints in college for artwork on my dorm and first apartment walls – in the ’70’s!! I would buy a yard of fabric and stretch it over a wood box frame. They were great – so cool to see you using them too!

    You know… it appears to be the same shade of green that you are using in the basement. Couldn’t you repurpose it as some curtains or a toss pillow or stretched on a frame as wall art?

        Jill is totally right! It would look GREAT with the basement!

        That right there is why I love the Internet :)

    That is gorgeous! I am in the process of gathering inspiration for our dining room redo, and that tablecloth might just be it. Thanks for sharing!

    Heather, I would look for them to go on sale near the end of the season. They were a late Fall/ early Spring Edition, so they should go on sale when we change over to Summer merchandise. BTW, I work part-time at a Crate &Barrel ( I have to add this for legal purposes). : )

    How pretty! Crate and Barrel… sigh. I’m currently in school, and I can only hope that my future job is a well-paying one so I can decorate my home nicely. Haha!
