Wallpaper Remnants?

I'm really loving this accent wall idea that I found on Pinterest.

I found it while searching for photos of Orla Kiely Flower Blossom Wallpaper, which unfortunately is out of stock right now on her site: 


But if I could get my hands on even a few scrap pieces of it, or something with a similar feel, I'd love to make a wall like this in our new home. 

Any ideas where I could find wallpaper remnants? Do they even exist?

A look back at our loft

While we actively search for our new home in Saint Louis, living back under the roofs of our gracious parents, I find myself reminiscing about the last place of our own that we left behind in Chicago.

Even when we lived there, I'm not sure that I ever posted photos of our entire loft, rather than just snippets here and there. So here is a little belated tour of our former Chicago home.

Kitschicagoan has Relocated

It's official, kitschicagoan no longer resides in Chicago.

IMGP3392

After almost a decade, I am once again a St. Louisan.

It was hard to say goodbye to our wonderful life and beautiful loft, but we are excited for our new adventure in St. Louis, MO. Here we are in close proximity to Claire's grandparents (very close proximity, as in under the same roof, until we find our perfect home!) and are excited to reconnect with our Missouri roots.

I hope to get reacquainted with blogging very soon and can't wait to document the process of making a whole house our very own. New name suggestions for the blog are welcome!

About Me

My photo
I'm a St. Louis native, but I have been living in Chicago since 2005 and am loving every windy minute of it. I enjoy cooking (more-so eating), home decorating and really anything creative. I'm a supporter of DIY & handmade goods, a fledgling foodie and a connoisseur of kitsch. I spend my days filling online shopping carts, emptying them and repeating the process all over again. Most of all I love spending time with my husband, Dave, our first child, Claire and my dog, Louie.
