D.I.Y Geometric Wall

Some of you may know I also own a clothing store called IGLOU. We recently moved the shop in Orange to a new location which gave me the opportunity to experiment with some D.I.Y projects.

Top of my list was painting a wall in a colourful geometric pattern. I had been seeing clever ideas on Pinterest and I've attached some of the images that inspired me. I always say that painting a wall is a quick and affordable way to change the feel of a space and if you don't like it you can always paint over it! Scroll down for my step by step guide.

 

Before I started I knew I had to clean the walls. I discovered this amazing product - sugar soap wipes - just like baby wipes but for cleaning the walls. They worked a treat and had the walls prepped for painting in no time.

It was a little tricky getting my head around the angles and the maths! They are all right angles! I started with an image of a geometric pattern I liked and then I roped in my handy husband; armed with his tape measure and spirit level, to draw the lines on the wall.

I then carefully stuck on the painters tape - which is the fantastic tape you can paint over and later peel off to reveal crisp straight lines. I placed my tape just next to my pencil lines so the paint would cover the pencil lines and I wouldn't have to erase them later.  

I painted one colour at a time, following the picture and plan I had created prior to starting. I started with darker tones in one corner, blues and greens and then moved to pinks and peachy tones in the opposite corner.

The wall with the painters tape still attached. I was taking very deep breaths here, petrified I may rip off half the paint with the tape - but it all worked perfectly!

I actually found the painting quite relaxing!

I then decided to continue the pattern onto the next wall and it really works

After finishing we added some faux floral installations and the two complemented each other so perfectly.

The Copper + Blush Trend

We have been noticing a lot of stylists using soft pastels with edgy metallic colours. It is a trend we are loving and feel totally inspired by. At Jumbled we are all about mixing, not matching! Colour clashes are welcomed and we find throwing together unusual colour combinations fun and personal.

There is something elegant and feminine about the comination of the soft pinks with the coppers and gold. It could be easily used in any room of your house and accentuated through textural pieces. For example, gold wire pendants with pink woolen blankets. Or a peach coloured lounge with a copper side table. Even a tarnished, silver bedhead with dusty pink, orange and soft green bedding.

Here are some of our favourite examples we found on blogs and online that have inspired us to use this trending technique in our houses. The D.I.Y. tin vases are definitely making a cameo at our next dinner party! Also watch out for some fun new pieces popping up online and in store!
