Walls with Character
I cant stop talking about walls…. Can I?? You’ve seen my peacock wall… which is my all time favourite… This one… ‘My Wall of Frames’… *smiles* is another special one… Close to my heart!! ... coz I’m not someone who can easily put two frames on one wall… I’d rather paint, than drill and hang!!! Do you have the same feeling?? This one took a while to prepare…. a long time to comfort my heart… that a few holes in the wall only mean a beautiful wall… *smiles* Then came the decision of which wall to do this with?? The wall that we choose had a/c & light controls… How do we incorporate that into a frame wall?? A true labour of love… from start to finish!! All the photographs are clicked by ‘moi’ during our holiday to Jaipur last year and of course some of my favourite photographs… The first step was deciding what I really wanted to do with the wall…. Then the hunt for frames began!! Once I had all the frames… I printed the photographs… Then laid them out of the floor… the way they’d be finally on the wall… That started a series of arranging, re-arranging, viewing… viewing from different angles.. and finally… this is what came out of it…. Oh… The lovely traditional door …. That you see is an exquisite piece of work… artistic and intricate!! I needed something to hide the light switches and the a/c controls on this wall… So off I went hunting for a perfect door… When I saw this…. In my favourite antique shop in Karama… my jaw nearly dropped!! I simply had to buy it…. The wall came together bit by bit…. The individually hand picked frames, the colourful frames, the tambourine, the door, the photographs… Each item to suit the tones & hues.. not only of the pictures but of the room they are housed in as well… Do you know what’s behind the piece de resistance – that tambourine? Do you?? Take a wild guess?? The A/C controls… Don’t you think that’s a fantastic idea?? Take a closer look and you’ll see them… the door hanging conceals the light switches and the tambourine conceals the a/c controls… What do you think? Ideas… suggestions… comments… scope for improvement?? Bring it on!!
