I recently just moved into my boyfriend's house, and I realised that it was way too boyish/bachelor looking for my taste. The house had all the typical manly tech items, like the massive TV, surround sound system, and a whole room just dedicated to his computer. There was nothing wrong with the furniture (they are all really new and stylish) but he didn't have one single decorative item in the house. That needed changing! The house was in desperate need of a woman's touch!
I started off small; putting a nice table cloth on the dinner table, placing candle holders in almost every room, putting up a little wine rack in the kitchen, etc... But that wasn't enough for my artistic soul...
So I gave myself a bigger project. And in this case bigger means that I made my boyfriend chuck his computer out, and I decided to change his office into a nice little arty room for myself. (Selfish? Naah... he never spent time in that room anyway!)
I started painting over the ugly boyish light blue walls, but I wouldn't settle for just plain colours. Sure, I decided to paint 3 of the 4 walls white (I painted the 4th one in a beautiful olive green colour), but my big project is that I am painting a big tree on one of the walls. It's massive actually.
I haven't actually painted it yet, but I projected my design on the wall yesterday, and drew the lines with a light pencil, so I've got a good idea of what it's going to look like.
