I mentioned in an earlier post how badly I wanted to decorate to make my place feel lived in. Well, I am finally getting around to putting something up on the walls!
I had my husband cut the wood blocks and I started painting. These colors are a lot brighter, but I painted them the in the color palette that I want my livingroom: chestnut stallion, deep aubergine , leapfrog (green), hallowed hush (blue). I saw this Eastern inspired palette in a Behr paint pamphlet and thought it looked quite modern, but the bright colors make it look fun.
To start, I selected various photos from our engagement and wedding and attached them using removable glue dots so I can change them as often as I want . So sad that I’m just getting around to printing these out years later.
I used the velcro command strips to adhere the blocks to the walls for easy removal and positioning.
It feels so good to personalize!

I had the pleasure of doing a couples photo shoot for a friend and his fiancé at Grounds for Sculpture. I so appreciate their patience and I thank them for giving me the opportunity to practice. Not long after we hopped out of the car, we spotted this peacock nearby.

For a while now I have been watching a community called 100 snapshots. The purpose is to take 100 photos each fitting one of the themes (based on your interpretation) on the list given in the blog. I like taking photos from time to time so I thought it would be a great idea to participate.
Here is the first photo for the theme RUST.
