Mankind has striven over the millennia to make his environment as agreeable as possible. The cave paintings at Lascaux almost certainly had spiritual significance for early modern man but might it not equally be the case that he was just fed up with the sight of smoky limestone as we ourselves have tired of textured plaster finishes? Might it not also be the case that wall stickers are the pinnacle of this search for visual nirvana? I think they are.
In the modern era traditional classical ideas of beauty have often been rejected, mainly by sour looking people with moustaches when they get cut off by their bourgeois parents for not doing something respectable in the run-up to World War One. How old-fashioned this rejection of beauty seems now when we have wall stickers to brighten up the sitting room and bedroom and even the kitchen!
What is beauty? How do you define that which makes our base and animal existence bearable? The Oxford English Dictionary has it as a combination of shape, colour and form that pleases the aesthetic senses . The online encyclopaedia Wikipedia, says largely the same thing using many, many more words, loads of links and a clutch of random images. In Australia it s a large fish. For me, though, the one thing that truly demonstrates beauty in essence is the self adhesive vinyl wall sticker.
Let s start with a living room makeover. Obviously if you want things done quickly and cheaply we are going to have to work with the existing paint color and the old sofa. Everything else can go! Pull down the curtains, take off the cushion covers and out with any tires pieces of artwork. When you know what you are left with you can start to make some decisions. If it is a bland neutral space then the choices are endless. Decide what colors you would like to inject and what style you would like to go for and get shopping! For a pretty oriental theme there are some fab fabrics available. Beautiful printed silks in jewel colors will add some glamour to the room. Don t feel that you have to match the cushions, throws and curtains as this is an outdated look. Team this with some spring branch wall stickers with gorgeous pink birds to complete the Asian feel. Finish off with a few glass vases and candle holders in a variety of colors and the room will be unrecognizable.
