Since we recently moved to a small apartment, I've really been thinking hard about what I want to do decor-wise. We can paint if we like (to a certain extent) and I shared with you what the living room looked like before we painted it white. I still haven't quite decided as of today, but my goal is to get that wall painted. WITH SOMETHING. SOON. (Do you like how I haven't really given myself a deadline? Did I also mention this blog used to be called The Lazy Crafter?) But I digress. I had almost resigned myself to a solid-ish color, but then I saw this color-blocked wall:
All I can say is I. LOVE. IT. However, I am still vacillating betwixt a glaze-y (I could find no other word that evokes the appropriate feeling) aqua and a soothing shell-pink, not to mention the fact that I have the burning need to get art on those walls, stat! But! I really want to incorporate some kind of graphic element into whatever ends up happening on that wall.
Mr. M and I went to Lowes the other day to pick up a bunch of paint sample pots in various colors and guess what? We got so into looking at other stuff and planning other projects that we forgot to pick them up. Sigh.
Of course, that got me thinking that maybe I should wallpaper? Eesh. The thought of it gives me the shivers, but in a good way. Here are a few samples of what I'm thinking of:
Circus! Wallpaper! Found here.
Everything in this woman's Flikr is GORGEOUS. Mr. M thought this wallpaper too busy. He doesn't understand.
Say it with me, Chinoiserie. One wouldn't want to sully this paper with framed art of any kind. Hmmm. Interesting proposition... Found here.
The search continues...
