A few weeks ago my friend Amber from Dixie and Twine started painted a few walls in her house with fun patterns. I was so inspired by her walls, that I wanted to bring a little fun colorful pattern action into my home too. Because you know there isn’t enough color here already! Ha! I figured the perfect space to try out a colorful design would be the small landing at the top of my stairs outside the master bedroom. So I went and grabbed a few sample pots of paint and some painter’s tape and taped off a free form geometric design. Then I started painting this DIY painted geometric wall.
I love, love, love how it turned out and hopefully it will encourage me to sit and relax a little in the new nook.
Here is the before of the space after I removed the art that was on this wall.
Pretty bland huh? It also shows how much $20 of paint can transform a space.
During the process. I moved the chair back there to see how it would look. I didn’t keep it there while painting! As you can see I sort of taped and painted as I went. I didn’t tape off the full design all at once. But if I were to do it again, I probably would tape it all off and then paint. But I was impatient and wanted to get started!
After I painted all the panels, I removed the painters tape and painted over a few of the white lines to join the colors in a few spots. As you can see I also left a few sections white.
Since the wall pretty much speaks for itself, I kept the styling minimal with a chair and two pillows (one is mine and one is from Target), a potted plant, and a few colorful accessories.
