I’ve mentioned before how bland rental apartments can be — and you could sum up our apartment in three words: beige and white.
While I actually don’t mind a sparse, bright, and clean aesthetic — particularly since we live right near the beach — Mr Midday Musings needs some colour in his world. With this in mind, we slowly have been filling every blank wall in our home. Even though our apartment is “cosy” (ahem, tiny), there are a surprisingly large number of vast, empty spaces, most of which are at strange angles and give our main living space its odd, pentagon shape.
There’s only so many photo walls that I can handle before I start feeling crowded in a small space. The alternative was clearly artwork but we weren’t willing to fork out the big bucks when we’re still not exactly sure how long we’re staying in Canada, let alone in this apartment. For the second time this year, a blog came to the rescue. This time, it was in the form of a simple DIY project — chevron canvas art.
