Take the main wall behind the sofa in the living room. It started with a framed London Underground print (actually some gift wrap from HERE). I liked the size and the frame, but I just could not get past the aged creamish map against the crisp white mat. Something about it looked weird. I don't know why, but it did, so down it came.
Next up was the DIY starburst mirror. I love a good startburst as much as the next person, and I think this will definitely end up in another area of the house (maybe painted and in the hallway?). But it just looked a little raw, or unfinished, or woody or something, so down it came.
There are many, many, many examples of really good paint chip art all over Pinterest. These are some of my faves:
For my take I went for triangles. I managed to find a paint chip that was close to the main colour in the living room, and I used that to judge which other colours I would use.
I laid out the triangles to work out the general layout and colour spacing
Piece by piece I transferred them to my white backing card.
And I squished them all down with a couple of heavy books (thanks to YHL for their inspiration and for producing a weighty book).
Just the look I was going for - at least for now!
