Recently, I promised myself I’d bring more green and naturals into our house. The bathroom is sporting a new lush look, why not add some to the living room?
Until now I had my quirky sit and stay text bubble pillows on the chairs:
Not at all natural, were they? For a quick change, I pulled out a remnant of mossy green linen. Great color, but alone it looked boring.
Inspired by nature, I stamped a leaf design. Three cheers for new life to that side of the living room! Look at my plants, too. Four over there, including the finicky maiden hair fern. I haven’t killed it. In fact, it has a ton of new growth. It’s a miracle!
After debating patterns (random, circles, lines) I settled on a chevron pattern.
To create the uneven texture, I used a piece of a foam to go box as a stamp. Using a knife, I cut out a leaf shape. A pencil tip worked perfectly to press light veins into the leaf.
Stamping was quick and I didn’t fuss over evenness of the paint or placement.
Green is good for my mood; it perks me and my home up. Fun and fresh without being crazy or dramatic.
What’s your favorite color to decorate with?
