Friday Design Finds: If These Walls Could Draw

26 Oct

Happy Friday, Artsies!!  You may have noticed that the Friday round-ups have been a bit more design oriented of late.  It wasn’t intentional on my part at first, but once I noticed it, I decided to just dive in completely!  Artsiness abounds in all kinds of places– fashion and interior design, architecture, consumer goods, you name it.  So beginning today, each Friday I’ll bring you a group of artsy design goodies that I find inspiring.  Hope you enjoy!

Secret AF tidbit: The one and only time I was ever spanked as a child was for drawing on my bedroom walls with a permanent marker.  Now, there are wall coverings made especially for coloring or you can just draw/paint directly onto your wall ( if you’re an adult & own your walls ).  Instantly artsy vertical space.

    I love these ideas, but as someone who had moved a LOT, I can’t help but think how hard it would be to leave one of these behind.

      I can totally relate, Jessica! Don’t think any of my landlords would appreciate my artistry. :-/

    Yes! They sure do. Too bad I can’t draw nearly that well. Guess I’d go for the wallpaper option.

      Coloring would be just as fun!
