The entrance foyer of our house has a 25' high wall....I wanted to add the wow factor as soon as you enter the house (who doesn't right!). At the same time I wanted to follow the ideas we had for our entire house without making it too crowded. Adding a sculpture on the triangular pedestal was an obvious choice and we both loved the one we bought. It was both modern and earthy. I loved this decal with branches and turquiose birds and thought that would make this area look complete. Well, was not too happy with the end product! So that's how began the process of re-conceptualising this space. A number of sketches and color options later we had a breakthrough :) We decided on adding chocolate brown as an accent color. Idea was to add a dramatic contrast against the neutral wall while keeping the turquiose birds still the highlight. The staircase design helped breaking the same contrast we wanted to create. Taping the wall was challenging! But all the hard work paid off :) We both love love love the end result! What do you think?
Our entry corridor is long and has a huge wall painted in beige, really boring. This corridor is a transition space as we can see the living room view behind it. I wanted to visually break this wall into smaller sections and add some texture/color but not make it overwhelming. While going thru the concepts, researching on what I want, I came across these fabulous Wall Flat panels by www.inhabitliving.com. I fell totally in love with these! Not because I knew having these on our entry wall would add a lot of character and depth, but on top of these the panels are made from bagasse so they are completely biodegradable and environment friendly!!!! And they are super light too!!!!
I picked Tierra Wall Flats - why? Because for me the waves in these wall flats represents the flow of our life. They are organic yet structured, and that is exactly what I wanted :o) Installing these was not an easy job....not because the panels are difficult to install, but because my concept made it so :o) But the end result made all this hard work worth it. Sharing the pictures of entire process....it ended up being a family bonding time because my brothers and my (soon to be) sis-in-law came down from northeast and helped us finish it :) Big thanks and hugs to them and ofcourse to my sweetheart husband who is all over in the pics below!
So finally I finished this little project this weekend with the help of my dear husband :) Just a small change in our closet but boy it makes a big difference!
Idea was to create a cost effective solution for hanging my bags....and the answer was a 4" x 8' x 1/4" piece of wood, painted crimson red (one of the future main colors in our closet/master bath/master bedroom) screwed to the drywall....simple! To hang the bags we purchased 3" long nails and yes nailed it to the wood rail in such a way that 2" still protrudes from the rail and gives enough room to hang two-four bags. Once we installed the rail and nails, I painted the nails with parchment acrylic paint. Love how it turned out! And best of all - total project costed us about $10 roughly :o)
