Now that the rug is in, my eye keeps going back to the art on the wall. I think it could use a change as well. I haven't had it up that long, but that wall just seems too sparse. I dug out all of the picture frames I had and placed them on the ground in an arrangement that I liked and snapped a photo. Using photoshop I got to see how they would all look up on the wall (while still covering the circuit breaker box):
I like how it looks so I think I might make the switch. I had planned on painting the frames to match, but I'm kindof digging the eclectic mix and how a lot of the frames pull the same colors in the rug up onto the wall. But it didn't stop there, I decided to play around with paint colors in photoshop just for fun:
I fell in love. Nooooooo! Why do I tease myself like this? We're allowed to paint the apartment but the fee to paint the walls back is something like $200. Le sigh! Maybe I can figure out what the standard apt paint color is and we can just paint the walls back ourselves... since this area is so small it would be such an easy change!
