Since the decorator finished last week, things are really starting to come together round these parts. I have a LOT of clearing and tidying and cleaning still to do but slowly slowly it’s starting to look like the home I would love to live in.

here we are before The Great Hanging: plain off white wall and still too much ‘stuff’ for my liking

On Sunday I decided it was time to hang the pictures. I’ve been gathering prints and art work by my favourite artists and gradually framing them, and I figured I had enough now to make a nice display behind the sofa.

ready to rock: gotta love a blank canvas!

I am never going to be that person that does a job ‘properly’; you know, with the measuring and the cutting out of templates or anything that involves accuracy. I just laid the pictures on the floor in a pattern that pleased me and which would allow for additions later on…And then I banged some nails in the wall, using the pictures and where their strings were to guide me where to put them. EASY.
I am super pleased with the result!
I can see this becoming a fab art wall. Every time I look at it I get a little rush of pleasure. 🙂
