Wall envy…

Yes, WALL envy! We are currently renting and I'm proud to say it's quite an architectural gem, but because it's under straight preservation design guidelines, we are limited to one wall color – white. I don't mind it really, because of the nature of the place. It's called "the Treetops", hence we literally live in a treehouse! And when you are surrounded by trees, you really can't complain. But how I would love, love, love to paint a splash of color, or do something super creative with the walls. Here are a few images/ideas that had caught my eye. I say, the bolder the better!

… a wall of postcards. Pretty fabulous no? Get the how-to here.
 

… a chalkboard wall calendar. Have you tried chalkboard paint before? This checkerboard pattern makes a pretty handy planner for the family. Click here for the how-to video and directions.
 

… a classic black + white striped bathroom. Beautifully accessorized… It feels so warm and welcoming to me, perfect for a guest hallway bath.
 

… a blueprint inspiration. How amazing does this oversized blueprint wallpaper look? Makes me want to blow up something my mister did for our own home. And how about a collection of vintage blueprints? (Think I may need to start digging through buckets of them at flea markets!)
