nothing to do
happy sunday guys, are you having a bon weekend? over here for the first time in a long time, nothing is happening. nothing and no one is on the way over, needs to be cleaned or bought or called. what that leaves is time to get back to enjoying my apartment.
i just got the chair we had at the AD show. it’s big for this nook but it’s home for now. at least it covers up a bunch of wires :) with its arrival i started thinking about dressing this corner up. (not that i don’t like white and truly i am quite lazy lately). but IF i was gonna, the first thing i’d do is paint the door. leave the background white and just do the blocks and trim. but what colors?
liz gave me this dress and i’ve had it hanging on the door as inspiration. not that i’d go orange and navy. but then again, they’re sort of neutrals…
i’d like to do something to the wall too cause the armoire creates nooks that are perfect to showcase something bold or pretty.
i came across this shot just now and thought it was apropos just when i thought it would be mod to trellis-out. this facade is on a building that’s probably over 100 years old. funny how certain graphics and colors seem so fresh but were created centuries ago. i wonder what their inspiration was back then?
anyway i’ve been surfing way too long and have read about everything from diy stenciling, fabric wallpaper, painted wallpaper and everything in between. guess i better cut it off somewhere or i could be at it all day, what with nothing to do and all.
now my only problem is deciding what to do. i love metallics. or maybe ikat?
maybe a panel of paper on foamcore so no damage is done to the walls. or maybe i could try painting one…
it’s a playground out there, so many options, so few walls. as much as i like the moderne, my other half would do something très féminin.
so many talented people are working on such pretty things
making things that are truly unique
just came across this one i found in paris. sort of close to the ones above. there’s nothing like the real thing! now i wish i got it…
just a couple other ideas. infinity is fun.
and don’t get me started on people wallpapering furniture!
i’d love to have wallpaper that looks like this old wall, like a built in. hmm, maybe blow up a photo?
put it on the to do list. for tomorrow that is! the rest of today has no agenda. hope you have some time to do a lotta nada. have a great night!
