The Valencia Lounge Hostel And The Power Of Paint

jestcafe.com-valencialoungehostel4Sometimes you find interior design ideas that blow your mind in small pieces of jealousy. How didn’t I think about that before? You wonder. How are people so creative to come up with these simple, cheap, and life changing ideas? Can I be one of these people?

That is the way I felt after seeing photos of the Valencia Lounge Hostel, specifically this one:

Isn’t so cool? The circle going into the headboard, vibrant colors, and interesting shapes. Big doses of creativity and a medium amount of paint, that would do it. So cheap and easy! Just when I was thinking I didn’t have the budget to fix our master bedroom, I stumbled upon these photos, got the creative bug, and realized what I could do with a low budget.

The paintings/murals are probably inspired by the Memphis Group’s geometrical shapes and colors. They feel alive and vibrant. I love them all. Let’s take a look.

Do you like them as much as I do?

These rooms have given me the idea of creating shapes with different color moldings. I need to come up with a plan for the walls of the room and share it here.

In other news, my phone felt in the water last Friday. 4 days without a phone! A very nice treat, indeed. Although I am not thrilled about having to pay for a new one, I welcome the reminder of how nice is to be disconnected for a little while.

Thanks for stopping by!

    So cool! You won’t believe this, but just the other day (prob Aug 8 or 9) I was thinking about my front foyer and was thinking exactly about this idea. I wondered about how one could paint the space to make it look very interesting. But then, I started to think about wall paper and how much time that would save. Ha! Anyhow, it’ll be fun to hear if you decide to do something like this! Xo
