Boy’s Room Wall Murals from Customized Walls
So, as some of you know, one of my littles turned 10 this past week. One of the things I have been wanting to do is re-do his bedroom with one of our Customized Walls wall murals. He has been looking at all of them and really can’t decide which he would like better. Continue Reading
So, I don’t know why I stopped writing so much. My blog is, for the most part, a great way to clear my head after a long day and show you all some of the really great things I have seen through the day in the interior design world with a heavy focus on wall murals and wallpaper (my well known obsession ).
But, that being said, I am about to share something with my readers I would not normally share. Since my last post, my mum was diagnosed with lymphoma again. It was earth shattering news to me. My mum has been cancer free for 10 years and always told she would have a slim chance of ever getting it again after 5 years. And, as Murphy’s Law would have it, we found out 2 days before she was moving from what was 5 miles from my house to 3000 miles to take on a new job in California. Exhausted and emotional were we all (and still are for the most part).
As I said, this week could not get over soon enough. I have 4 littles at home and sometimes feel more taxi driver than mum and THIS was one of those weeks. I am SURE some of you all have been there.
With all that time driving around, I was thinking about this secret I have been keeping. I have been collecting over 1000 new images to add to our offering at Customized Walls and I know you all want to see… Right?
Sneak Peek Time!
Our Vintage Poster collection is to die for. So many would make such excellent full wall art installations. How dramatic to have a HUGE piece of art on one wall. So modern!
So happy it is Friday (FINALLY)! It has been an odd week. Have you ever woken up midweek and it just felt like Saturday? That has been happening to me all week. It’s not much different for me on Saturday…I still work, I still cook and clean and take care of my crew, I still boss everyone around trying to get things done. I DO sleep in a tad later…like maybe until 8 AM and my handsome and amazing husband DOES make me breakfast sometimes…So, maybe thats what I need. a couple hours more sleep and something to eat in the morning. hehe
Anyway, you hear me blather on about murals and wallpaper so much during the week, I thought I would take a break and talk furniture. Hey, you gotta fill those gorgeous wall mural-ed rooms up with something, AMIRIGHT?
So lately, I have been OBSESSED with Art Deco. I have been pinning it like crazy and have a HUGE collection of curated images on both www.loveit.com and www.pinterest.com. Here are some pieces that blew me away. Of whichyou can find on my collections here and here.
But, let me first tell you about my night. If you know me or have read my bio, you know that I am raising my nephews and niece along with my daughter. My oldest nephew is about 6 months older than my daughter and they are in the same grade….which is now entering middle school. So, last night my nephew had his friend over and well, you could tell there was some crushing going on between my daughter and this boy. I had to pick up my daughter from track practice so decided to pick up a friend for my nephew at the same time. When we got home, she showered and came down with lip gloss on (because her lips were chapped- RIIIIIIGGGHHHHTT!) and then this boy would come and check on her every few minutes asking her over and over to come and play nerf guns with him. It was all so cute! My Belz is more the climbing trees and playing with legos kinda girl instead of the barbies and boys type, if you know what I mean. I hope that continues for at least a few more years. She is only 11 for goodness sake!
So, thinking of young crushes, I thought I would share some of my LOVE murals we have here at Customized Walls.
