Just Plain Fun!

What a fun space this is! So fresh and clean looking with just the right pop of color.
 I love the fact that the majority of the space is a shade of white and is just accented with bold, springy colors. The large circles on the wall were simply painted on using a pizza box for the template.
You can see below how it was done!
Great job, Shoshana!

Simple white grommet panels soften the windows and the shades of brown in the coffee table and the woven blind ground the space in just the right way.

So, she just took the pizza box and opened it up flat. Super hard. ;) Measure the height and width of the walls and decide how many circles you can fit...this will determine the size of the circle.

Self-explanatory. Just make two circles to create the inner and outer portion of it and cut it out.

It'll look like this. Time to paint your walls the lightest color first.

Start at the top left corner of the wall and start to mark off where the circles will go with pencil and then tape.

Begin to carefully paint the edges with an artists brush with the darker color.

And Voila! What a statement wall.
If you're budget is tight and you can't afford fabulous furniture and accessories,
a painted pattern on the wall is a perfect choice for you!

Sidenote: Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
So, you know when people tell you they made this recipe and that it was so good and soooooo easy and then you make the darn thing and it was so not easy? K. Well, I made this dessert last night and it was not only yummy beyond belief, but it was seriously the easiest thing ever. If you need something to take to a potluck or to a get together...this is it. Make sure to chill it for a while...but, having said that, I didn't and only let it come to room temp and it was still the bomb.
I asked my husband to score it from 1-10 and he said, "8.5....no, a 9!".
To which I asked, "Is that graded based on all the desserts on the planet or just those I make at home?"
 He pondered that and replied, "All of them."
Huh, well, what do ya know? He loved it.
I will be more realistic...to me it was a 7.5 or 8...super yummy...but, I have had some killer desserts.
Raspberry gelato in a warm, freshly made cone in greece that made my toes curl.
A 13 layer pastry in Paris that made me swoon with delight.
My mama's coconut cake.
But, this stuff will stay in my repetoire
and I'm really looking forward to having a piece with my hot tea this afternoon!
