Usually I’m a pretty indecisive person when it comes to ‘decorating’ my house. Maybe that’s why my house is largely undecorated (besides the family photos and some of my old college intaglio prints). So I thought I’d use some fun artwork for my starting point in my sewing room/ play room redo.
I came across these cute prints from Printspace on etsy and just couldn’t stop thinking about them. I love the Thoreau quote on the one “Go confidently in the direction of your dreams live the life you’ve imagined.”
I’m totally a quote person – love reading quotes and love being inspired by them.
After ordering the prints, I jumped into paint swatches. I’m not good at picking out paint, I’ve already painted this space twice in the past with lack luster results. I think it’s hard trying to find paints that go with the age of the house (built in 1950) and it’s woodwork. How I wish I had white trim, somehow I think that would make things easier. Anyway…
