There are four magic words that every home renter wants to hear a landlord say: “Do Whatever You Want.”
Well, I heard those words the other day, and my head’s been spinning with possibilities since. I mean, I won’t do WHATEVER I want to the house. If I owned this joint, there would be a gazillion little things I’d like to invest in doing, but since I won’t be here forever, I’ll stick to the less time and money consuming projects.
What I’ve been scheming up lately is a statement wall in our hallway. Yes, as my husband says, we don’t really spend anytime in our hallway, which is kinda true I guess. BUT, it’s the connector to every room in the house, so in a way, we kinda do. (Plus, if he wants me to not force another move on us for at least another year, he’s gonna need to encourage this statement wall). I may or may not have a serious addiction to looking at local real estate like it’s my Facebook news feed. (Definitely do).
A statement wall is a big commitment, so I’m letting the idea of triangles marinate for a little while before I get too ambitious. I also love this triangle wall from The Band Wife. Maybe some kind of combo that merges these ideas would be nice.
While I’m PRETTY set on triangles, that doesn’t mean I haven’t been looking at other ideas for inspiration, and just in case you want to make a statement wall or just admire some gorgeous ones, I thought I’d share some of my favorites.
THIS watercolor statement wall is gorgeous for so many reasons. It’s definitely not what I’m going for in my hallway, but it almost makes me want to put this in my bedroom right now.
Of course, we Annes love everything A Beautiful Mess does (who doesn’t, though really?). So naturally, I’m in love with two of their statement walls. First, these little anchors are so perfect for this entryway.
And, the clementines on the kitchen make my little southern heart pitter patter, indeed!
Lastly, I LOVE these mountains for a kid’s room. Such a fun idea!
What about you? Do you have a statement wall in your house or ever thought about doing one? I’ll keep you posted on how mine turns out!
