Hey everyone, remember these large scraps of designer vinyl wallcovering I rescued from the office trash a while ago? (Red flip flop added to show scale.)
I went to Blick Art Supply, got some wooden stretcher bars, and got crafty at my cousin's place. This actually happened about a month ago, but it's Before and After time.
It's finally starting to feel like a home! I think the most fascinating part of this decoration process has been understaning my cousin's priorities, especially about artwork and wall decoration. It's true--some people don't think about art; it may not be that important to them. Ever. But once you get something up on those blank walls, you can see how a space can come to life.
In her case, she knew what she didn't like--insects, animals, technical or overly bold abstracts. So we stuck with something kind of safe and agreeable--lots of florals. The pixelated, vinyl mosaic scraps from Elitis were perfect and became the first step to turning her house into a feminine, glam retreat.
More updates--and better photos--soon!
