Difference between minimal and unfinished decoration
I spent the last year in bed thinking about it. My life ritual is to swing from end to end, then slowly move to the middle ground. I did this with the boyfriends. I did it with work. I do this with the decoration of my bedroom. My bedroom, which was once full, was a pretty empty canvas last year. And from this place, I think the difference between minimal design and something unfinished.
Well, it didn’t end in a few concrete ways – our old gypsum plasterboard began to peel, so we have to paint it precisely, and our wardrobe doors needed a new renovation. When this was taken, it had a very simple platform bed, lamps, MOST simple side tables, a long wall-mounted shelf, some old landscapes and a sumptuous, majestic round old mirror.
I think I say that a lot – I’m a bit of a concern, and the more I can simplify my life, the better I can focus on my main life priorities: wife, girl and small business. I can’t remember exactly what influenced me to get rid of my storage and get most of it out of my bedroom; expressive, encouraging, calm and happy. These photos put my thumb forward. I’m always changing and updating things, so I’m sure there’s more, but I felt very happy where it is right now, I wanted to share.
What I added to my bedroom
Another way to make it unfinished was that there was no artwork. I knew I wanted something on our bed, but it’s a very special, personal place for art. I had to value this art. He would hang like a guardian angel above our heads – you have to rely on this art to watch you. Does that sound crazy? I was in a very good store with my husband Ryan and my daughter Harriet, and we saw her, and I couldn’t raise my eyes pessimist, worldly, and meditatively in this great landscape with color palette. Art is definitely postponed. Thanks thrift store!
I always say you can’t go out and find art, he has to find you. Keep those eyes and heart open – when you feel connected to something, shoot! I like to see this painting in the mirror when I go under my covers.
Speaking of art, I ALWAYS wanted a mobile device, so I fell in love when I saw Tasha’s modern macrame mobile phone at Tasha Ball’s art show in Made. I love that his emphasis on this room is the texture of all these thoughtful knots connected by a dear, talented friend. Funny hanging sculptures on mobile phones – it is the honor of giving your life a place for the sake of beauty for the sake of beauty. I wake up and go to bed because I face this beautiful piece.
I added family photos to the landscape collection on my wall mount shelf. Most of the landscapes are old, but one is the work of friend and artist Tyler Thrasher. The landscapes calm down and inspire me. Good day, am I right? And family footage – why should I get them if I don’t print them? It doesn’t hurt to visually remind the two most fascinating people who have ever visited the world, right? This is you, Ryan and Harry.
I plant it and it’s a happy disease. I can’t stop doing things these days. I was studying the fabrics of the Owl and the Drum, and my head was filled with excitement in the combination of several fabrics and other colors in my room. I felt happy, so I sewed this pink, topographic Carolyn Friedlander fabric bed cushions for us. I love not only to look at this fabric, but to find a reason to squeeze my cheek every day. God bless.
More beds? Yeah. Tasha Ball hosted an indigo shibori workshop and I painted that blue and white fabric that adorned my bed on the kidney pillows. I DID IT HERE! Creating staples for life-like pillows is strangely satisfying. The pillows were quilted and supported in a green color drawn in the great art. I like to look at colors and patterns; It feels inspiring and strangely sexy – just how you want to feel in your bedroom. * Wink *
Headboards, beds, what?
Palmer and I talked about never having a real bed frame. A definite story. The owner owns several beds (not brag, palms) and is doing it for me. Simple. My redhead did it, that’s nice. However, I came across the idea of a painted hood and I’ve been thinking for a long time. If I paint the title or find the great art first, I can’t remember now, but they take clues from each other and I feel really good. We used the artist’s tape to mark a rectangle and were painted by Jasper by Sherwin Williams. Then we were painted under my chair rail in my dining room (this post will come!).
So that’s it. Outside, I just took these photos, and then I found surprisingly small vintage green filing cabinets of the perfect size for the side tables. With this move I also welcomed more storage, but I haven’t put anything in my drawers yet. I’m afraid of hoarding and acquiring. That’s what other people think, right? Then I will share photos of these paintings.
Slow and steady approach to design
I say, “Take it away and add it back slowly.” I’m definitely not a big fan of doing anything, so it was a much stronger and happy place to start from my over-stuffed room. I’m sure you’re all feeling better knowing I’m sleeping in a more finished space, and I appreciate your thoughts. You’re beautiful and you live in a meaningful area. Cheers!
Then (My baby is getting too big! The doctor says it will happen!)
Just like making a fire, creating your own warm, comfortable and useful bed linen is reinforcing. It also allows you to feel your place on a long producer line throughout history. Being a part is a satisfying tradition. This Carolyn Friedlander fabric is beautiful. I’m amazed that it’s geometric and organic at once.
Quilted House Sparrow shibori indigo pillows make you feel as proud as my handmade standard pillow cases. I loved to slow down and learn about the process of fabric dying and closing the pillow. Thanks Tasha!
Look at my beautiful Foxy Pot’s cup! I have special clients who are inspired by this job, as soon as possible.
Bringing macromeles of the 20th century here and now
I have to admit that until recently, the list of things I want to hang on my macrame walls will be at the end – when I grew up, it brought back memories of the moldy brown pieces I found in dozens of thrift stores. A particular macrame find – an owl made of twine – comes to mind. However, if you take the time to them, as proof that the flavors and trends have become a complete cycle (I’m betting the owl gets a nice penny in some old vintage boutiques right now) I’ve found myself with pleasure recently (not like that) Art.
Finally my example – my friend Jess recently bought the most beautiful wall hanging in Etsy (as you can see below) and it is full of neons to add a modern cool touch. After seeing this, I was desperate to know more about how these pieces were created – and I was very happy when Himo Art May agreed to stop running out. May did a great job of bringing the macro of the 20th century here and now (the last macromeles became perfect for me), and I was delighted that she decided to look at it – it turned out to be quite complicated – the process. It’s time to Improve your knotting skills, kids!
Things that you need:
- Wooden Dowel
- Wooden Breads
- Paint Brush
- Masking Tape
It can attach dowels to the wall – it uses a removable hook, because it’s a great way to not make holes in the wall.
It can cut the rope into 14 x 4 yard pieces and 2 x 5 yard pieces. It then begins tying the rope to the head nodes of the larvae and compiling the dowel with 5 yard pieces (one at each end) into a book.
The rest can continue with ropes.
Then it makes double half axle knot.
And it goes on and on.
By the end, May begins tying them diagonally across the ropes.
You can add wooden beads here and here before connecting the nodes.
Then each starts to connect the switch nodes using 4 ropes.
Can connect 8 of them.
And he brings them crosswise.
You can add more beads and bring the knots to the end.
It can then cut the ends of the rope.
Covers a portion of the dowel ends to paint and add a hint of neon (a woman from my own heart!)
Finally, he adds a watermelon pop to the end of the rope.
And there, hung a magnificent macrame wall. I can appreciate the work that goes into these pieces – not a craft for withered or ham!
