Would you call me crazy if...

... I did this to my front entryway?
Seriously.  Should I paint big circles on my wall?  Because I  kind of LOVE it.


It was done by Jamie Meares in her new Furbish Studio warehouse in Raleigh.  

Check out all the photos of the new store HERE.

Okay, okay, here are a few more:

Before I saw the photo I thought "Hmmm, polka dots.. not so sure about this..." Then I looked at the pic and I say GO. FOR. IT. I love the free-form nature of the painting. Are you thinking of black + white, or a different color combo?

if so, call me crazy, too. as soon as I saw that, I said, "Aha! my guest bathroom!"

Miranda - My entrance is painted in a light sea grass gray and I'm thinking of painting darker grassy gray circles over the top of it. So it would be tone on tone - but definitely a great contrast like in Jamie's photo from the post.

Gray on gray sounds grayt! :-)
And, a smallish space like an entryway, or a bathroom as Donna says, would lend itself well to this kind of treatment, I think. Keep us posted!

I was going to say "Go for it! If you don't like it, you can always paint over it." But, I see you did it!! Good for you.

Glad you followed your instincts!
Life is too short not too and besides, just paint over it when you're ready to move on!

Barbara said...

Do it! Follow those creative impulses! Like others have said...paint over it when new inspiration strikes!
