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

For those who’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 truth 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 checklist. So I made a decision as a substitute to color the partitions a stable coloration and add a number of colourful paintings 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 artistic means. 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 type 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 cloth to reupholster my desk chair. (Because of this I take advantage of a lot velvet for upholstery.) I really 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 carried out so with a really particular challenge in thoughts. So whereas I knew they provided quite a lot of completely different merchandise past simply wallpaper and cloth, 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 and see what that they had, and see how my floral design regarded on the assorted merchandise. It turns out that they offer a lot of different products–all the pieces from cloth and wallpaper to cocktail napkins, throws, bedding, pillows, and curtains.

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

As I used to be wanting round at all the pieces 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 no less than I might see what the fabric looks like made into curtains!

So as a substitute of shopping for their ready-made curtains, I purchased six yards of cloth in order that I might make my very own lined pinch-pleated curtains. And whereas it gained’t precisely give me that very same look that having the daring mural on the partitions would have, it will nonetheless give me a number of the identical daring coloration and sample at a fraction of the fee. I’m fairly enthusiastic about this concept! Right here’s a bit mock up of what the curtains will seem 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 coloration, both. I just like the boldness of the inexperienced, however I simply don’t like that exact inexperienced. I don’t suppose it might look good with the cupboard coloration, which I’m about 95% certain would be the Tuberose coloration 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 believe a darker blue or purple would look nice with the cupboard coloration. And I’ve already used comparable colours collectively within the adjoining room (the sitting room) with the buffet coloration and the curtain coloration, so I do know I like them collectively.

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