grown-up walls

It will be nice to evolve out of my walls when we move. Sounds silly but my bedroom here has been such since I was still at uni, a teenager even, and it just got frozen as a 'stick this to the wall' kind of place. Looking forward to adorning in a more adult way. It will be strange to make it our bedroom, as here it seems mine, when living in Sydney it seemed eb's, and in London it was other people's.

The ripped-out-of-a-magazine photograph in the top pic is by Serge Leblon, I admire it greatly.

Not sure if you know this, but I LOVE Le Petit Prince!!! It is by far my favorite book of all time, and I love that he adorns your walls (he adorns my picture shelf in a painting I created just for him)

I used to be just like you - a blutacker from way back!
Now I try really hard to frame everything I put up, even if it's in frames from the op shop, and that makes the walls look seriously grown up.

Even if you're renting, you can get those sticky hooks that come off without hurting the paint....

I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the new house - that bath! I almost died. Love it.
