The stairs, lovely as they are, need something.
I have some ideas but I don't know what to do where. Perhaps you can help me out?
Idea 1. I'd like to create a gallery wall as I have a lovely collection of paintings that have lived in the loft for the past four and a half years. (All from charity shops/boot sales etc)
|Husband HATES these religious ones. He says if I use them I will remind him of his mother. If he was cleverer he could win all arguments with this statement.|
Idea 2. I have been collecting rolls of vintage wallpaper and I'd like to create a patchwork wallpaper wall. (I'm also concerned about this: some are wild and funky, some are pale and pretty. Can I use them altogether d'you think? Or do I have to spend another 5 years collecting and do either a 'pretty vintage' wall OR a 'funky vintage' wall?)
But the biggest decision I have to make is what goes where. I'm leaning towards wallpaper in the bedroom and pictures on the back wall of the stairs.
The bedroom has a neutral colour scheme so that would work. Would it be insane to have pictures ON TOP of a patchwork wallpaper wall? Too frantic? I don't want to give myself a migraine.
Because I also have this huge original 1963 film poster (family heirloom as my grandmother wrote the film) that needs re homing and I'm running out of walls. This could go on the back wall of the stairs? I'm also thinking of 'adding' to the painted stairs and the more neutral that wall is, the better it will look...
I'm getting nowhere fast. Your input would be very much appreciated. Who else can I ask? Certainly not the husband! My dad? I think not. C'mon ladies! You vintage loving, sheet collecting, chazzing, creative and clever ladies 'get this' more than anyone else in my life.
