This is an odd question, but do you have a wall of your house or office that you really like? As much as I try to be an outdoors person, I find so much coziness inside. In particular, I like my modern little writing nook with a little day bed, laptop, and piles of books. And one of the things I like best about it is the blue wall in front of me with a huge black and white poster of Central Park in the winter.
Walls comfort me (and even inspire me) if they are interesting enough. I love a colorful mural, collage, or industrial backdrop. While big windows are nice (and I kind of want those too!), a wall can be more practical – and adaptable. Plus, walls don’t expose you to the elements and the whole world. They build up boundaries and defenses, which can be quite calming.
Do you think a lot about the walls around you, or are they simply just shelter? I used to not pay so much attention to the walls around me, but I’m getting more into decorating and personalizing them. It’s fun to be surrounded by colors and art that I love. I may not have the cool brick walls of an urban loft space, but I’m still kind of amazed by what a coat of paint can do.
My latest quiz, The Funky Wall Test, was inspired by some very cool wall pictures I found. See what the one you pick says about you, and feel free to discuss my result (and all things wall) with me below.
