Including My Floral Design To The Studio Again Entry (I Discovered A Manner!)

4 min read

Should you’ve been following my studio challenge, you already know that I actually wished so as to add the floral mural that I created for the lengthy entrance wall of the studio to the partitions of the again entry additionally. I even did a mock up of it, and began getting actually excited in regards to the concept.

However then I used to be confronted with the fact of cash and finances and all of these not-so-fun issues to consider. Wallpapering the again entry would have value over a thousand {dollars}, and whereas I’m open to some splurges right here and there, that one wasn’t excessive on my precedence listing. So I made a decision as an alternative to color the partitions a strong colour and add numerous colourful art work to the partitions.

I haven’t modified my thoughts. That’s nonetheless the plan. However I simply couldn’t let go of the thought of bringing that floral into that a part of the room in some inventive method. A few of you had urged framing sections of the mural wallpaper and utilizing it as artwork on the partitions, whereas others had urged utilizing it simply on the ceiling.

I didn’t actually wish to do both a kind of issues, so whereas I used to be importing and ordering my giant design for the mural wallpaper, I additionally determined to add a smaller model of the design and see what it would look like on fabric. For some time now, I’ve been contemplating utilizing that floral design on their velvet material to reupholster my desk chair. (This is the reason I take advantage of a lot velvet for upholstery.) I like how the material appears to be like, and I used to be fairly set on the thought of utilizing it for the chair.

I’ve actually solely ever used Spoonflower to add issues that I wish to strive for my very own home, and I’ve at all times finished so with a really particular challenge in thoughts. So whereas I knew they provided loads of completely different merchandise past simply wallpaper and material, I’ve by no means actually paid a lot consideration to these different merchandise, a lot much less thought of buying any of them.

However this time, I made a decision to poke round a bit of and see what they’d, and see how my floral design appeared on the varied merchandise. It turns out that they offer a lot of different products–every thing from material and wallpaper to cocktail napkins, throws, bedding, pillows, and curtains.

Tea towels! I’ll get a couple of of these for my kitchen. What a enjoyable, vibrant sample to have on tea towels!

As I used to be wanting round at every thing they provide, I noticed these curtains, and thought, “That’s it!” I should buy the material and use that to make curtains for the again door! They do supply ready-made curtains, and the worth isn’t unhealthy. However I don’t like rod pocket headers, and there’s no choice to have them lined. However at the very least I may see what the fabric looks like made into curtains!

So as an alternative of shopping for their ready-made curtains, I purchased six yards of cloth in order that I may make my very own lined pinch-pleated curtains. And whereas it received’t precisely give me that very same look that having the daring mural on the partitions would have, it will nonetheless give me numerous the identical daring colour and sample at a fraction of the associated fee. I’m fairly enthusiastic about this concept! Right here’s a bit of mock up of what the curtains will appear like…

I do nonetheless plan to color the partitions. That inexperienced simply doesn’t do something for me anymore. However I don’t love the thought of portray the partitions a impartial colour, both. I just like the boldness of the inexperienced, however I simply don’t like that individual inexperienced. I don’t assume it might look good with the cupboard colour, which I’m about 95% positive would be the Tuberose colour on the left within the image under.

Possibly I can pull one of many darker blues or purples out of the material and use that on the partitions. I feel a darker blue or purple would look nice with the cupboard colour. And I’ve already used comparable colours collectively within the adjoining room (the sitting room) with the buffet colour and the curtain colour, so I do know I like them collectively.

So, we’ll see! I ought to get the material tomorrow, after which I can choose up some paint samples and begin narrowing down the probabilities.
