When the kitchen cabinets came down yesterday, layer upon layer of history was exposed. The room looks like an archeological site.

It appears that the kitchen’s most vibrant period was a mid-century strawberry festival.

Is the wallpaper pattern inspired vintage, or just way over the top kitsch?

John and I wondered if we will achieve as much exuberance in our renovation of the kitchen.

For an instant, I imagined keeping the wallpaper. It would be a perfect backdrop for many of the vintage treasures we have collected.

But I don’t think I could face a strawberry party in the kitchen everyday.

Although, we have been known to cross over that fine line between vintage and kitsch before.
