After moving into my downtown Kansas City apartment, I finally gave in to decorating.
You know, the real kind of decorating where you try to make things match and nails are pounded into the walls because the landlord allows it. Maybe not even that. It is the fact that there is no expiration date on this apartment yet, unlike the last five years of my college life. It is a new start, with new walls.
I’ve always been a big fan of collages. The organized chaos is attractive. What is fun about one wall with one piece of art on it?
I have many walls in my apartment, and my favorite one is in this little nook where the dining room/craft table is. It is a quaint little space, and it deserves to have an equally quaint wall. The nook first had a triptych of Moulin Rouge dance posters from France, and it was OK. Not the best, but OK.
I’ve been collecting hanging pieces for the past couple of months, and I can safely say that each piece in my collage means something special to me. Here are all of my treasures in their final glory.
How about a closer look?
Now, go put some stuff on your walls and decorate! It will feel good.
