Ok, technically, I think it’s a door, but it reminds me of millions of repurposed window ideas I’ve seen. After removing the door from Sir Hutchington, I was left with, well, the door. I’d like to do something with it, but I’m not sure what. It’s sort of just on the wrong side of traditional/colonial for me. I want to find a way to make it seem a little more traditional/modern. I know that’s what I want to do, but I have not a clue how to do that. Here’s what the door looks like:
There’s something about that curved top that I’m liking. It’s reminding me of Art Deco somehow? I actually didn’t notice it just looking at in person, but seeing it in 2D, that stood out to me. Sort of like these curves:
Ok, I know it’s a stretch, but I it’s moving me in a direction. I don’t know what direction it’s moving me in, but there’s something there. This literally just occurred to me as I was writing the post and I’m going to have to do more thinking and researching on it.
In the meantime, I had pinned a couple of fun ideas that I think I could tweak to a more modern feel:
I love the black and white photos in here, but not the distressed finish of the wood. If I did this, I was thinking I would paint the wood black (I’m so sick of painting things white). Or maybe a charcoal gray.
I like this as well and I do have a bird fetish. Still a little too rustic for me. I actually found adorable note cards at Ikea and I’m going to test them out:
How cute are those guys? With some sort of a darker mat behind them?
Huh, but now I’m totally stuck on the Art Deco thing and I’m drooling over these pictures that I found while googling those architecture pics. Check this stuff out:
Officially obsessed. I’ll be visiting the 1920’s to 1940’s for a few days. Ta.
