For the gallery wall, I wanted to create something that the computer could blend into. I realize I'm not fooling anyone, obviously it's a screen. But I don't think it takes away from the room now that it's worked into the color scheme and collage. Eventually we have plans to get a more streamlined monitor with a flush mount, but for now that remains in the "someday" category.
Most of the artwork is done by yours truly (i.e. CHEAP ART!) but one of my favorite pieces was done by one of my husband's buddies, Erik. It's a scratchboard drawing of Hyrum playing football in high school, and was originally featured in the local newspaper. He's a really talented artist, if you want to see more of his work go here.
I bought the fabric for the curtains from Ikea and then sewed them myself. I decided to go with the puddled because I wanted the room to look finished but stay pretty casual.
Ah, the bookshelves. I love books. Have any good reading recommendations for me? I'm always looking for new ones!
