HOUSE NORTHWEST MEX
The bedroom was nice but very very small and I couldn't do anything about that. It has one tiny closet and I have too many clothes and too many ornaments and too many baubles, especially earrings. The walls were white, the ceiling was brown, the woodwork was politically correct natural wood. BORED, bored bored.
I painted two walls in this transluscent blue that looked just like the walls in the haciendas in my Mexican folk art books. The ceiling got a coat of red violet and as you can see, the ornaments found a new home on the yellow spray painted wire shelf. I decorated the walls with sun and moon ceramic and tin pieces from Mexico.
The closet door didn't hold any more inside it but got a nice pink frame, lavender outside, and turquoise and lime green slats, I have a red tin skeleton hanging on one door and a green one on the other so I now have the skeletons of my closet out of the closet.
The wall that is not blue, turquoise or yellow is a transluscent red, purposely left a little spotty a la the populat painting techniques. That's a coconut shell mask in the middle over the South American 3-D fabric hanging of a marketplace I bought at the Folk Lore Gallery, a store in the town where I live.
