Gosh, I feel like I have turned this blog into a home decor site. Ever since I got more active on Pinterest, it feels like every house is beautiful but mine 🙁 . Do you feel that same way too after a Pinterest browsing session?
I have a whole bunch of wonderful art work done by the Snubnose and I’ve put up some of them around the house, but I got stuck halfway when I realized two things:
- Her work is so varied – some bright, some dull, some Indian, some European, some small, some huge. It’s hard for me to figure out how to arrange them in the house.
- She is getting better and better by the day, so it makes sense for me to hold off framing the current stuff when I know something more beautiful is coming through the pipeline.
But now, after seeing these lovely images that I found on the architects Sawyer | Berson‘s web site, I am thinking I should forget about design inconsistencies and just paper the walls with her stuff (especially when I see the children’s rooms below).
Of course, this could have been easily achieved if we had gone with plain white or cream-colored walls for Snubnose’s room. Unfortunately, Snubnose wanted pink walls and doting daddy obliged in spite of my disapproval, and so I need to think how to create an art wall when it has a pink background.
I am tempted for now to ditch the pink art wall in Snubnose’s room and instead take over one wall of our study room and turn it into a gallery. Unfortunately there’s a lot of contention for that wall. K wants to put up a projector and project sports games and stuff on that wall. I am ping-ponging between a library shelf and an art wall, and I am sure my FIL has some other ideas in store as well.
Hmm, let’s see what we end up doing eventually. I think I might end up getting a gallery wall, simply because that is the cheapest design option on hand 😉 .
And oh, I am just dying over that cute pink striped cloud pillow in the right hand side of that last photo. If I hadn’t just gotten Piglet a whale pillow recently, I would have totally tracked down and bought a cloud pillow. I may still do that for Snubnose 😉 .
What do you do to decorate large wall spaces?
