This is the landing at the top floor of our home. It is a small area surrounded by two bedrooms and a bathroom. I have in the past attempted to decorate this wall with a collection of prints. It didn’t work out using prints of different sizes and designs , because it made the space look smaller and cluttered.
It finally dawned on me this weekend that, to make the space feel less busy, I should take an opposite approach.
I went for simple two tone colour prints, grouped together to create the effect of an oversized art print. This completely brightened and opened up the space.
The ‘Twin Tone Play’ screenprints I used were from Lane (lanebypost.com). The vibrant blocks of colours accentuated the decor on the sideboard. Everything looked so happy and in harmony don’t you think? Isn’t that puffin so cute? My husband bought it for my birthday last year. The vertical blocks of colour also created a sense of height in this small space. I’ve tried to create a midcentury modern vibe with my Eames bird and colourful Holmegaard vases.
So there you go, large blocks of colours can really open and brighten up small spaces.
Do you have a similar small and forgotten space in your home, just waiting for an injection of colour and happiness?
There are twelve colours in the print collection, so do take a look at Lane for your perfect combination.
Wishing you a wonderful start to your week.
