Geometric Wall Art

I created this wall art back in. . . June?  Maybe even May!  But after hanging it I decided to change the fabric to something more simple.  And then I had such bad morning sickness that was not going to happen.  And then I found out I was having a boy, so I would rather change the fabric to match the new boy's nursery I have brewing in my mind.  And then. . . just kidding.  That's the end of it.  So many excuses!

But in the mean time, I thought I would share.  I haven't had time for any new projects since I started nannying and it gets old sharing inspiration pics all the time!  I want to share my own work!

I found these placemats at IKEA and wouldn't you know they were almost exactly the same color aqua as Olivia's bedding?  Isn't it funny how you notice the colors you're currently working with?  I covered some cork pan holder things (actual name anyone?  I mean, not the name in Swedish because that's what IKEA gives me) with fabric that played off the aquas, creams and circle concept.   I laid everything on the ground and moved it around until I liked the layout.  Then took a picture so I could recreate it on Olivia's wall.

When I took these pics Olivia's crib was being used for a photo shoot for Oilo.  That's why there isn't a full wall picture.  Sorry! 

Do you agree that the fabric is too busy?  Now that I know I'm having a boy and that I want to do an orange and aqua nursery I'm just going to wait and change it to fit the new color scheme. 


  1. I love it! The trivets (at least that's what I call them) add some great dimension. Pinning.

    1. Yes!! That is what they are called. Thank you for that.

  2. Love!! It looks fantastic!! You did an amazing job. The colors are beautiful!
    Thank you so much for sharing at Artsy Corner! Hope to see you again this week :)
