We’ve renewed our lease for another two years, so it’s time to make some changes around the house. Because the sofa is slowly disintegrating, I need to either reupholster it, or buy a new couch, which means I can think of redecorating the living room.
One small thing that will make a big difference in the room is changing the art. There’s not a lot hanging on the walls, and even fewer objet on shelves, but what we have is so familiar that it’s easy to ignore it.
I think I’ll replace the two small ink drawings in the living room with one quite large piece—maybe something I paint myself. Also I’ve been playing with sheet metal this week and I see possibilities for a sculptural lamp made from the scraps of my current project.
And moving around some of the other photos and prints scattered around the other rooms should give the whole apartment a bit of a lift. Fun!
This project gives me a double creative dose. Not only to I get to design the new look of my interior, but I will be making the works I want. Maybe you can redecorate one of your rooms with some of your artistic endeavors and we can share before/after photos?Posted by kuri at January 13, 2006 03:29 PM
