The Valencia Lounge Hostel And The Power Of Paint
Sometimes 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.
So, what do you think? 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!
Also, a post about the Memphis Group designer Ettore Sottsass, designer Miriam Alía, and Spanish design.
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
if you do this, please send photos!also, don’t underestimate the difficulty of installing wallpaper. have you done that before?
