A few years ago (yep, I know) I bought a cute little condo. What that meant is that I had the opportunity to revisit my custom walls. This time, it is a melange of the wall accessories. While all of the patterns may seem hectic, they actually work together really well resulting in an calming effect. In fact, that little corner is one of the coziest (dare-I-say hygge?) spots around!

Just remixed my couch cushions using a no sew technique. Great use of random and excess fabrics (without a need to necessarily cut the fabrics). Came out kinda fun and the pillows can easily be remixed and fabrics reused again and again. If interested in learning how, these are the instructions I followed.
I just might go around remixing everything now. Haha!

A few years ago, I made wall tiles using some cork board, cloth and a stapler. These wall tiles inspired my next custom walls exploration.
My sister (E) helped me fulfill the vision. We used some needlepoint/embroidery hoops. I have no idea if that is the proper term for the hoops, but, at the least, I believe it is an adequate description. We outfitted a diverse batch of hoops with fabric then decorated some walls!
Even small swatches of really cool fabrics make for some fun and easy projects!
Looking good is in my blood ;-). My grandmother, mother and select aunts have been inspirations. Bold but classic African-themed styles are my preference. I LOVE being introduced to new looks and materials.
