Creating Visual Interest (on the cheap!)
My husband and I drew the floor plans ourselves and revised them 100 times before working with an architect. That being said, there's an ownership and sense of pride in this home that's much different from before. So now, I'm to the opposite extreme and have been lackadaisical (although I doubt my friends would agree with this adjective) when it comes to decorating certain parts of my home.
Take for example my master bedroom. I have contemplated the perfect piece of art to hang over my headboard for a year now. Problem is, every piece of art I've liked has carried a ridiculous price tag with it. My mother always told me that "I had champagne taste with a beer wallet" --- I'm thinking she was spot on! So, last week, while out shopping around, I came across a couple cool pieces that I thought would work well together. That's when the idea hit me! I'd create a "mini" gallery wall. Nothing that was too difficult to piece together or overwhelming to the space, but an eye-catching, visually interesting work of art that I could create for under $100.
I happened to have this some chevron craft paper at home that I decided to use to fill the glass photo frames, in lieu of a traditional photograph. I also thought it added a little bit of whimsical yet modern flare to the wall.
Here is another angle (with better lighting I may add) AND a sneak peek of my master bedroom. I will have a post with a full tour coming up very soon - so STAY TUNED for details!
