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.
For those who learn my final submit 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 modifications she made. She didn’t change it a lot as to empty all the life out of the wallpaper, however she did tone it down sufficient in order that not one of the flowers appear like they’re glowing. And she or he 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 gained’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 proper.
It’s nonetheless colourful and enjoyable and vibrant, however I believe the brand new one will play a lot nicer within the room.
So to see the distinction, right here’s the unique wallpaper in its present measurement on the precise wall…
Right here’s what it appeared 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 reasonably good concept of what the brand new and improved wallpaper would appear like 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 stored considering that it might be so a lot better if the flowers had been greater. 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 truly wished a design with the bigger flowers from the very starting, however I didn’t know of a spot that might print such a design because it’s extra of a mural and never your customary repeatable wallpaper. The one place I knew about the place I might add my very own picture is Spoonflower, and so they solely supply 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 bought the mural that I utilized in our current rest room transform…
And so they help you add your individual picture, and so they’ll print a mural from it. Meaning I gained’t be sure 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 need 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 need to carry the floral mural into the again entry, or go away these partitions a strong coloration.
If I don’t do the mural on the partitions of the again entry, I may need the design printed on material, and recuperate my desk chair with that floral material to convey 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 coated 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 all the time order that later.
I nonetheless haven’t nailed down all the design for the studio and half rest room, however issues are slowly beginning to come collectively in my head. I hope to have an general plan to share with you very quickly.
