I painted my half bath

Yes, I painted my half bath...

a while back...

The bath-ROOM that doesn't really have a bath.  It's not really an amazing bathroom by any stretch of the imagination but it's just a simple half bath.  Pretty basic.  So I wanted to do a little something different in there.  It had been bothering me for a while but it functioned and I was too busy to deal with it so I left it alone. 

Then it snowed.  A lot.  Remember?  When it snowed... A LOT?  And got super cold?  Yeah.. I do. 

I painted.  A lot. 

So my kids were happy because we all know how much they love to paint!

So here's something we painted...

The crazy thing is I didn't even go pick out a paint color.  I made these colors with some paint left overs I had laying around the garage and then got all crazy again and I created the paint color on the sink too.  I had a few random colors so I mixed them up until it looked about right....I had a color in my head.. I just had to make it come close.  This is why you pay attention in art class.  You can actually purchase all the mistints at Lowes and make your own stuff.  {You need to know a thing or two about paint.}  When the time is MUST paint. 

My creative outlet. Ahhhh...

Now I am trying to decide what type of art to hang... I want some pics in here that are artsy and silly.  I painted the walls a dark "greige"... as is the new term these days for gray-beige.  Used my damask stencil and faux finished using the same silver. 

So, I love home decor and I read home decor magazines and blogs when I am not reading and soaking up all things photography.  I look/drool at home decor.. and I think about home decor when I shoot photos. Yeah.. so the photos GO with your space. 

I think I may do a gold frame series in here.  I am thinking right now that I want pics of the kiddos with crazy wet bathtub hair and silly faces in black and white.  It's just what seems to be speaking to me here.   I have also considered a bright coral frame which is a very popular color trend this year.  But that may be too matchy with the coral towel.  But.. the gold is a new "old" thing that seems kind of fun against the silver wash on the walls.  I could also do a bold color in a very ornate traditional frame with a funky pic... or slim frames with matting.. oh my!  the choices.

From what I understand... dark and moody is coming back.  Black walls and a mixture of finishes like gold and silver are being used together.  You know why dark and moody colors are coming back right..?   Because  you painted everything white and airy...!! haha

Don't stress.  Gray is still on the list and doesn't seem to be going anywhere too soon. Mint and yellow are also quite popular.

So the art for this room I think needs to me a bit of a mixture of traditional and modern.  So, lifestyle- silly portraits in a more traditional frame in an non traditional color?  hmmm.  An oxymoron if you will...

So what about you?  Are you redecorating anything?  Cleaning stuff up this spring/second winter...? lol   Want to try a stencil?

Next mini session date is May 17th.  The special this summer is a 250, 350 and the 400 mini.  All include digital files.  Don't worry. I can still help you with the whole process.  I can still hold your hand and help you with your decor as well.  Mini sessions are just like a small regular session.  We've helped lots of people get some great new art for their homes :)  

We have been booking fall appointments already as well.  If you want a good spot this fall you may want to get your calendar out :)

Get on the list for a regular session which is an UH-May-zing way to make custom art!! I am all yours!!  Email me and I will send you a link to some fabulous info on regular sessions.  We can decorate your house too. 

Get those kiddos in to see us this summer.  They grow up fast.

Cya soon

Whoop whoop! 

Making art for the new season :)
