As you guys know from this post, we’re finally starting to pull our living room together. Now that we’ve got the painting out of the way, it’s time to make one of our first big purchases- a new couch. I know that I gravitate toward shapes that are a little more modern and have clean lines. Also, since our walls are now a lovely shade of blue, I’m thinking either a gray or dark blue couch would complement the walls very nicely. It’s hard to make a decision, but I know that when we finally do it will completely change the look of our living room!

Even though I’ve been in my new apartment for a few months now, we haven’t really gotten around to decorating the place. This year, I decided that I wanted to remedy that, starting with my bedroom. I’ve long admired the look of a gallery wall and was hoping that I could create something similar in my room. However, when I thought of all the holes I would have to put in my wall and the money needed to spend on purchasing frames, I started to rethink the idea of a gallery wall. Then I stumbled on this image, which provided the perfect solution to my problems- a washi-tape gallery wall.
It cost me less than $15 to buy these different colored tapes and I already had all of these pictures. Some are pages cut carefully from magazines, a few came from last year’s calendar, a couple are postcards, and the picture of me was created by the talented Melanie. The colors of my room are yellow, gray, white, and blue and I wanted to stick with those colors when making my frames. Since my walls are already yellow, I thought it would be cool to add pops of blue and white. This is just the beginning- I definitely plan to add more images over time because I’ve got a lot more wall to fill. The great thing too is that the washi tape doesn’t damage the walls one bit and I can easily swap pictures in and out.
