Well as part of the postaday challenge you are given daily prompts to write about.. Well today’s Daily Prompt: Wall to Wall asks you what you display on your walls at home?.. What kind of artwork do you display? Do you display photographs etc and what mood are you trying to create?
For me pictures have to colour co-ordinate with the colour of the room.. They have to blend into the decor and not be obtrusive. I like plain pictures, mainly prints which are not bold but subtle. And I don’t like my walls cluttered. Oh my god, I know I shouldn’t say this but I will, I can’t abide walking into places where you can’t see the colour of the walls or the pattern of the paper because every inch is covered up with photos, paintings or prints hanging there in their different frames and none of them matching.
If people are happy to have their walls cluttered, then that is down to them, and I am well mannered enough to keep my mouth shut.. but honestly it is not my taste.
Now as for the other half that lives here… oh I can’t trust him to decide colours and accessories.. He says I have watched to many Ann Maurice House Doctor shows.. and have decluttered too much.. so my walls have minimum posters, pictures and photos on them.. In the lounge there is a mirror across the fireplace and one picture on the main wall opposite.
In the dining room, the main wall has a picture and we have a chiming clock in the corner of one wall. That is it.
I think our bedroom has most pictures, but again they are co-ordinated in white frames with the artwork being pieces of the wallpaper that was used on the feature wall.
Of course hubby collects film-cells… which I have in the hallway.. I can’t deny him any wall space but to truthful I prefer plain walls in a hallway.
Plus another advantage of my minimalistic walls is this… you don’t have a lot of cleaning to do.. 😀
