Mystic Visions:Linda's apartment
A few beers and a good, long talk decided the direction of Linda's 1980s townhouse. Think of the most mystic, enchanted dream you have ever had. Think of a thin, light fog rolling over a 1980s, pastel toned pad. Feminine, magical, semi-sparkly and very dramatic.(Yet still livable) This is her new home:
Foyer: The lightest, mistiest yellow throughout. Brought in through some kind of pattern(stripes?) Yellow is such a welcoming color and is very well suited for her entryway. There will be some sort of "Drop pad" for her keys, purse, etc. Very practical and welcoming space!
1/2 Bath: This is literally the SMALLEST space I have ever been in, most people would see this as a downfall but personally, I love it. It's not really being used at the moment, but who doesn't love that convenient little room when you don't want to run upstairs? Linda is an avid needle pointer, so I'm thinking of taking some sorta needle point pattern blown up to cover the whole bathroom in a pixelated pastel pattern. Going to the bathroom has never been SO FUN!
Stairwell: Here's the kicker-Literally. Albert is painting a HUGE, dreamy unicorn mural(did I mention Linda collects Unicorns?) The carpeting is a deep blue, so it will go great with the mural. Unicorns are usually associated with rainbows, but this one will be all faded pastels and gradients. No strong colors.
The rest of the apartment? Well, you'll just have to wait! I don't want to give ALL my secrets away!
Stay magical...I mean inspired!
