You know what I love about my Hubby? He can come home from a long business trip to a giant pink square in our front room and he doesn't complain. Ok so he says something like "When did I sign up for a giant pink square on our dining room wall?" and I say "When you married me" Then I get a big kiss and he grabs the camera and snaps some shots for the blog.
My sister and I went to the Renegade craft fair in LA this winter and I loved the use of triangles on everything. It's kind of got this "Modern Geometric Native American" feel. It inspired me. Since I want a mid century modern eclectic feel for my front room these triangles would be simple and perfect. I chose to stick to three colors. A peachy pink to bring in the Pretty Chair. Then white and a little bit of shiny gold metallic for some retro elegance.
This is Beebs cracking up because I said "butt", as in "Please don't take a picture of my butt" I was in my long john PJ's. No one really needs to see that:)
I was so worried that my homemade stencil wasn't going to work out, but it did! Plan B was going to be tapping off a million triangles, however plan A worked. YEAH! This may look easy to you and ya the painting part was actually time consuming but not that hard. It was the measuring and calculating that was intense! Now I know why I needed math!
TA DA! I can't stop looking at it! It's so pretty! I am so pleased. It's not often that a design idea in my head translates the same in real life. My room is on its way! Can't wait to put it all together!
