No matter who you spend it with or what you celebrate, have a spectacularly happy Weekend!
It surprises the pants off of me that I'm going gaga over pops of yellow vinyl (or leather) in a room. But I am! Especially the chair in 4. It's a pretty traditional shape but with the shiny vinyl and painted yellow legs it takes on a modern feel in that simple white room. It's bright, fun, happy and super easy to clean. I have been hankering for a reupholstery project. A chair like that would be so great in my son's room! Think about it... he couldn't destroy it if he tried! Pee on it? wipe it off and disinfect. Color on it? magic eraser baby. Spilled milk, juice (anything really) and it's a soup and water clean up.
Have you been noticing bright vinyl pops of color in rooms? What colors? Have you tackled the project already? Or do you think anything vinyl is vile? I'd love to hear!
I came across these prints by Lulie Wallace while "window" shopping at Anthropologie. They are colorful and happy and would look amazing in my girls room. They are also inspiring me to pull out my paints. I've been saying for some time now that I want to start painting again. I think it's about time!!
Do you have any artwork in your home that you did yourself? I think it makes a home so inviting and warm when the walls are sprinkled by the hands of the family living there. Off to dig out my paints!
Check out Lulie's site. It's beautiful, inspiring and makes ya want to paint flowers all over your walls!
I love the look of wallpaper! But putting that stuff up... don't love!
Years ago, before wallpaper was available in beautiful modern designs, I decided to tackle my first wallpaper DIY. My master bedroom. The walls were already wrapped in floral powder blue and yellow wallpaper... needless to say ripped it right off. After much deliberation I decided to go for wallpaper again. I chose a neutral stripe that I thought would be much easier to match than the floral that once was. I was right. But it was about the only easy thing about putting up that wallpaper. I'll put it this way... I'm divorced now... And looking back, that may have been the beginning of the end...
In that room. Wallpapering. Together.
I don't need to tell you that wallpaper is back in a big way! I'm seeing it EVERYWHERE. Magazines, DIY network shows, blogs and Pinterest. BUT hot digity dog folks... you can get the look of wallpaper without having to actually wallpaper! It's so freaking exciting!!
If you are not an Angel with the patience of Jesus... (must I tell you which one I am?)
Have you tried these techniques yet? How did it work for you? I'd love to hear!
(No I did not get divorced all because of wallpapering a bedroom. Just a little dramatic effect....
But truthfully it was not pretty! The walls or the wallpaper-ers. Hehehehe)
