There was a request made, asking me to show how I did my living room wall art on the cheep that I had spoken about a few times, so I did a periscope showing how it was done… and here it is.
When I moved from my 4 bedroom house I left with very little possessions in comparison to what I left behind. I didn’t want to fill my new place up with stuff, just because it was what everyone else does, or because I thought I should.
Living here for an entire year with nothing in that room except for a couch, tv, end table and coffee table (which is a fabric hassock that I took with me from the house I left behind and painted to match my color theme, which is turquoise) I felt like I wanted to make it feel like ‘me.’
So after being here for a year, and deciding that I was going to stay put through the summer, I wanted to make my living room feel like I lived here.
My inspiration came from a Pinterest board I had made, that I called “My Funky House”
I created it years ago because I knew I couldn’t afford to fix the old house I was living in, so I though I would collect ideas that would make it the best it could be given it’s current condition.
One thing that I LOVED on that Pinterest board, and thought would be perfect for my living room was a grouping of framed wallpaper, on a very bold colored wall.
I painted one wall, and it was very similar to the one on the Pinterest board that I used for inspiration.
It is a darker version of the color of the backsplash in my kitchen, which is the same color I painted my vanity. With the advise of my designer friend Donna Domecelli I had the hassock color matched and painted the wall the exact color.
Here is the picture of the Pinterest board. (Let me know what you think of the video!)
