Debating on adding these floating shelves, as modeled by K...thoughts? Too much?
I love that piece so much, @Erie .
I don’t think the floating shelves should go that close. Let it shine!
This is what I’m leaning towards
I really like it. Especially against that wall color.
I love how even that small bit of seeing your home gives these awesome beach vibes.
Thank you!! I appreciate that feedback so much. I know that the bright colors we painted the entire house in are not everyone’s cup of tea but it makes me very happy, so it’s always nice to hear that others like it too.
I definitely like it!
Seconding FN's animal suggestions. I'm not overly familiar with desert climates but some other possibilities: burrowing owl, hawk, bighorn sheep, and apparently bobcats can live in the desert which E might be into.
This combo by that artist is cute:
Also saw a bobcat and a prairie dog that could possibly work?
Different artist but I found this lizard. Not sure if the style is too different (pic is link)
I love these horses of hers and they fit the theme:
I can see where you're getting that, but I think it's just doing what rabbits do. I don't think the owl or deer necessarily look too woodland with the coyote and roadrunner.
Maybe too different?
I think the rabbit or horse(s) would work really well especially with the coyote and roadrunner.
As for the painting, it is gorgeous! It would be an amazing focal point for the landscape wall. What do you mean by too thin though? Like I get the dimensions aren't what you want. Is part of the aesthetic the sizes and orientations of the art?
Come on, people. I can’t believe none of you have suggested a jackalope yet.
I don’t have a super eye for art but yeah, I feel it’s a bit of a different feel if it’s longer and thinner versus a thicker 16x20 or something. I’m just thinking if it with the mat and frame, since it will likely be on a wall by itself I don’t want it to feel incomplete.
I’ve thought about how I could put the thinner landscape over the changing table instead of the blank wall but I like the animals over the changer since that’s more interesting for the kiddo to look at.
Why are curtains sold in individual panels? Who needs only one curtain? I found some curtains that were perfect and they were $80. I almost bought them but then saw it was only one panel. $80 for one panel... nope. I did finally find some on Amazon.
...Narrow windows? Idk, beats me.
That came to my mind. I have to have things symmetrical so it makes me itchy thinking about having only one curtain. When you tie it back, it won’t be symmetrical. The narrow window needs 2 curtains! I have issues.
Big curtain trying to get you to buy more curtains.
I get what you’re saying but some people live by the rule of thirds and are drawn to asymmetry. Also, I second the narrow window thing. I have one next to my front door, and it does indeed have a single curtain.
Yeah it’s just my OCD (? not really but don’t know what else to call it) that makes me need things to be symmetrical. I know not everyone feels that way. Ryan, for one, doesn’t care about symmetry.
