Hello my lovelies! Today I am sharing a project I made a couple of weeks ago as part of my campaign to have a brighter, tidier bedroom. Project: Tidy Room has been a success for almost three weeks now, and it feels great!
Geometric art is all the rage at the moment, so I thought I would hop on the bandwagon with some calming greens and golds. We’re in the market for a new quilt cover at the moment, and I have my eye on this gorgeous teal and white one. In hopeful expectation that I might get to buy it soon, I added teal to the colour mix.
This project was easy and fun. I measured the space above our dresser, did a sketch of how I wanted the heart to look, and got to cutting up paper. As you can see, I used 20 triangles of different colours to make the heart. There were heaps of different patterns and combinations to try, and you can always lash out and make a different shape too. :)
Once I settled on the arrangement I liked, I glued the triangles to some thin cardboard, and mounted it on the wall with some painters tape (so that it doesn’t ruin the paintwork). In fact, this would be quite a good project to brighten up your walls if you are renting and can’t hang any pictures.
The heart matches in well with the picture we have over our bed – a large rainforest panorama (I should have taken a photo!), and I really like how it brightens up the space. Now to get my hands on that pineapple quilt cover….. ;)
