I have some good news and some bad news. The good? I've finally created a term to classify my home decor style. The bad? It's a mouthful. Are you ready?
Here goes: Funktastic Modern Eclectic Cottage.
Aaah. It feels so good to get it out there! And to show you what I'm talking about, I'm going to share a recent transformation from my home. It's my favorite cozy little nook.
It's just a bit one-dimensional. I thought I'd fix the problem by updating the mirror to a bright yellow.
The yellow mirror certainly brought some funk into the nook, but it was still lacking. (P.S. The ribbon above the mirror is there for the sole purpose of hiding a hook that the previous homeowners placed in the wall. Pathetic, I know, when you consider the fact that we've owned the home for over 5 years.)
See what I mean?
So, I shopped through my home and found some fun artwork to cluster together. I played with the pieces I chose on my dining room table until I found an arrangement that I liked.
Then I moved the arrangement to the wall. A laser leveler and painter's tape helped me accomplish the nice square-ish cluster that I desired. I wanted there to be at least some structure to the placement of the pictures on the wall so my husband (who is my opposite when it comes to decor) wouldn't hate it and deem me an unfit homemaker.
This cluster makes me SO happy. You have no idea. In a future post, I'll be sharing a bit more information about where the art pieces came from so if you have any questions, please ask away!! I'll include an answer on my next post.
So, here's my Funktastic Modern Eclectic Cottage cozy nook, completed. Love! I think a nice round area rug would do some good, but I'm not worried about that right now. I'm just happy that this transformation was FREE other than the half-can of yellow spray paint that I used on the mirror. Score!
Here it is again, in all its glory. Thoughts? Suggestions? I'm all ears!
