I turned to Polyvore for inspiration for changing up my living room decor. I’m stumped as to how to deal with it – we’re stuck with a small space and a few unchangeables (upright piano and sofa that have to stay in their place, and built-in shelves spanning one wall), but I feel like it needs to have yellow, turquoise and grey.
Here’s what I’ve got so far:
I think I’m going to be stuck with just accessorizing – even painting is out of the question because the room is so small; anything other than off-white will shrink it further, I’m afraid.
Where do you go for decor inspiration?
I started a peyote stitch cuff this morning out of some dark, iridescent seed beads. I love how easy peyote stitch is (if you’re intimidated by it, don’t be!) and the drape of the fabric. The only downside is that it can get a little tedious, which is why I love two- and three-drop peyote.. they go much faster than one-drop. This is a two-drop peyote (link to a YouTube tutorial – note: I didn’t watch through the whole video, so if it sucks… please don’t blame me).
It’s rather gloomy out today, and my pictures weren’t perfectly true to color… so I did a little bit of creative editing with SwankoLab (created by my bff’s older brother!) and Picture Show for iPhone.
I reallllyyyy love these beads. They were cheapies from JoAnn’s – I think they were like, $1.99 for the package. So pretty! Like mermaid scales!
