Black be gone!

On my way to my hairdresser's this morning I popped into Big W to peruse their scrapbooking section on the off chance that they had a suitable grey and white paper for the back wall of Limited Colour.

Indeed they did, and I also scored a bargain as the cover of the pad was missing so I got it half price.

Limited Colour is now open for business, and packed with lovely new and vintage homeware. Come inside and have a browse...

That is a very cool paper. Did you have to scan it or were you lucky enough to buy it in scale?
The whole shop is great. If you ever opened a shop, Limited Colour would be the perfect name and I would definately visit.

Thanks Pepper

It's as it came from the pad (I'd tell you what the name of the pad was but it doesn't have a cover...)

What a great find, the paper looks great! I really really like these floor boards and I think the paper goes super well with them. You've found a great stash of mixed metals and glassware, even without colour there is so much texture and interest. I'm really impressed with how everything comes together. Hope you've had a great weekend! :)

I love the paper for the back wall. The place seems to have an industrial vibe. It looks great, I love the stools too!
