Geometrics On Your Floors, Walls and…

April 19, 2012

This cool painted geometric is the backdrop in a Ralph Lauren print ad that I saw in Elle Decor recently…  I’m in love with the soft hand-done look and texture it has.  Raised panel-ish, it’s not really trying to be something it’s not – not a faux anything – just a beautiful texture with a three dementional quality.  So of course after I saw this ad  – I had been lounging poolside – I googled handpainted geometric walls and found this…

The smarty pants – and talent – behind this writes a blog called gorgeous shiny things and her name is Danika Herrick.  Needless to say I’m smitten and have a new favorite blog? Maybe. She’s crazy talented and just a wee bit crazy (who paints a fabric pattern on a sheet linoleum floor??!).  Danika does, and it looks great plus she makes a mean stencil too.  How awesome is the pretty little mudroom above?  The pattern was borrowed from a  Quadrille – China Seas pattern.

Danika also had these to offer…

You guessed it this is the linoleum floor she painted…

And these found via James Andrew ( WhatisJamesWearing.com )…

The trellis pattern below is attributed to the late great Albert Hadley… he put the old in “Old Guard” and the Glam in just about everything he touched.  

BOTTOM LINE: Everything old is new again & If it’s boring… paint it.  Heck, it’s only a can of paint and a weekend, ok maybe 3 weekends, 6 bottles of wine and a divorce BUT it’ll look great.  Go get a paint brush!
