Love my home. Really, I do. But sometimes I lament over the lack of "feature walls" in this wide open apartment. The only area which would qualify as such is a wall with a ginormous Tudor-Revival fireplace slapped on it, which, in fact, almost turned me off of renting this home in the first place. But! I fell for the open feel of the space, and hypnotized myself into loving the go-big-or-go-home fireplace.
So, the fireplace "focal point" and I lived happily ever after for about a year, until I saw these great, big posters from Debbie Carlos on Anja's blog. Uninvited thoughts like "MUST HAVE," and "OMG PERFECT!" came to mind. But, where would I put it? Hmmm... no worries. I clicked the purchase button any how. A couple of days ago I received the post in the mail, rolled it out on the floor, and then sat with my legs crossed, staring alternately at the poster on the floor, and the lack of space on my walls. Then a solution popped into my mind! Rearrange! And so, I've spent the last two days trying to figure out new ways to refigure the things in our home. And here is what we've got.
Perfect? No. But I now have ice cream on my walls, with no worry of future mold and bacteria growth. And that is all that really matters.
