Girls Leopard print style mirror
My daughter is now at the
age where she’s starting to look at herself in the mirror and making sure shes ‘good to go’! However she didn’t have a mirror in her bedroom and one day announced that she would like a mirror on the wall in her room, not any old mirror I hasten to add, she wanted one in a leopard print style. She was also pretty definate on the colours she wanted.
I knew it would take lots of searching for the style/colour/size of this mirror so decided I would make one for her. I spotted a basic mirror with a wooden surround in Morrisons one day as I was shopping and thought ‘I could transform that mirror’ into my daughters leopard print creation.
The mirror has now been hand painted and transformed and it’s exactly what my daughter wanted, she loves it!
The contemporary canvas art I have created, which also include
the kids bedroom designs has its own individual style which will
complement many different styles. If you have a minimalist
approach to home decor, unusual and colourful wall art will bring
the room to life and the room will have a more ’cosy’ feel.
If your home decor style is more traditional, don’t feel that you
have to continue this style throughout , a combination of traditional
and contemporary can work really well together. A mix of old and new,
(if done well), in my opinion is one of the best looks in interior design.
Texture has a visual quality - the combination of light and dark, the layering of colour, tone and pattern -that brings vitality, interest and imagination in the decor of your home. Pattern can be called visual texture but choosing and co-ordinating it is often confusing as the possibilities are endless.
Harmony is easily acheived if you begin with a single colour or piece of fabric, and add toning patterns and textures. It is difficult to imagine how patterns can work in
a room from small sample squares so try and go for larger pieces of fabric and take time to gather a multitude of swatches before deciding what is right for you.
Wall art in the home can work really well, choose wall art that is the right size for the wall it is intended for and choose colours that will co-ordinate or add contrast in the room.
