Temporary Changes

When it comes to decorating my home, I am a huge believer in temporary change. I deliberately keep my backgrounds neutral so that they can take on my constant need for change, it works for me. Several years ago, I purchased some botanical prints for a song on ebay.  When they arrived, I was less than impressed with their quality. Since I paid so little for them, I didn’t worry – I just stuck them in my idea file and let them sit. The other day, the idea hit me to use them as a wallpaper of sorts. Using tape rolled around onto itself, I stuck these prints onto the wall behind my entryway mirror. I wanted a scattered look – I angled some and kept some straight.

I needed a change and I needed it fast – this did the trick. I can take this down in a few weeks when the next impulse hits!
