After I shared my points with the present studio wallpaper with y’all a few days in the past, my mother (a Photoshop genius) volunteered to assist me get the wallpaper excellent. After reminding her that the wallpaper was going to go in my home (the home of somebody who loves a lot of coloration and sample) and never in her home (the home of somebody who’s not so loopy about a lot of vibrant colours and sample), I handed the unique wallpaper picture over to her to see what she might do with it. Right here’s the unique wallpaper picture.
Should you learn my final put up a few days in the past, you’ll do not forget that it was primarily the darkish purple flower that I had issues with, however that purple flower was additionally a bit an excessive amount of for me.
I actually love the adjustments she made. She didn’t change it a lot as to empty the entire life out of the wallpaper, however she did tone it down sufficient in order that not one of the flowers appear to be they’re glowing. And he or she did a tremendous job at taking that one darkish purple flower (the one which turns right into a darkish purple splotch when standing on the opposite facet of the room) and including some lightness and definition to it in order that it received’t flip right into a darkish purple splotch.
Right here’s the brand new and improved wallpaper:
So right here’s a have a look at the 2 side-by-side, with the unique wallpaper on the left, and the brand new and improved wallpaper on the correct.
It’s nonetheless colourful and enjoyable and vibrant, however I feel the brand new one will play a lot nicer within the room.
As a way to see the distinction, right here’s the unique wallpaper in its present dimension on the precise wall…
Right here’s what it regarded like on the mock up I did again once I was contemplating IKEA Pax cupboards, however the wallpaper is an precise picture of that wall…
And this will provide you with a fairly good concept of what the brand new and improved wallpaper would appear to be on that wall in that very same scale.
It’s such an enchancment, however as I used to be doing that mock up above, I saved pondering that it could be so significantly better if the flowers had been larger. That approach (1) the flowers can be plainly seen from throughout the room, and none of them would flip into blotches of coloration when seen from a distance, and (2) fewer repeats of the design can be seen, so the design wouldn’t look as busy.
I did a mock up utilizing bigger flowers, and….I LOVE IT!
I had really wished a design with the bigger flowers from the very starting, however I didn’t know of a spot that will print such a design because it’s extra of a mural and never your commonplace repeatable wallpaper. The one place I knew about the place I might add my very own picture is Spoonflower, and so they solely provide repeatable wallpaper printed on 24-inch-wide wallpaper. That implies that the picture you add to Spoonflower shall be repeated each 24 inches. That makes it unimaginable to add and print massive scale designs that don’t match neatly right into a 24-inch-wide repeat.
However within the time since I designed that unique wallpaper and now, I’ve found my favourite wallpaper mural retailer — Photowall. That’s the place I obtained the mural that I utilized in our latest toilet rework…
And they allow you to upload your own image, and so they’ll print a mural from it. Meaning I received’t be certain by the 24-inch repeatable width of normal wallpaper, and I could make the design as massive as I need it to be.
In order that’s the plan. I’ve my picture with the brand new and improved colours, and now I simply want it printed a lot bigger than the unique wallpaper.
I additionally must resolve if I wish to put the brand new design within the again entry. No matter what I resolve, the inexperienced goes, as is the black and white design on the ground (that’s a agency choice, however extra on that later).
However I simply can’t resolve if I wish to carry the floral mural into the again entry, or go away these partitions a stable coloration.
If I don’t do the mural on the partitions of the again entry, I may need the design printed on material, and get better my desk chair with that floral material to carry the floral design into the “workplace” space of the studio. I got here throughout this image yesterday from Rifle Paper Co.’s Instagram account, and completely love this floral chair. I can picture a desk chair lined in my vibrant floral sample.
So I’ll in all probability mess around with the dimensions of the flowers on that wall only a bit extra to make certain I’ve it precisely like I need it, after which I’m going to order the mural for that wall. I don’t must decide on the entryway proper now. I can at all times order that later.
I nonetheless haven’t nailed down the complete design for the studio and half toilet, however issues are slowly beginning to come collectively in my head. I hope to have an total plan to share with you very quickly.
