Art update {our house}

If you were beginning to think I had been lost to the land of day-jobs, being grownup and working as an architectural draftsperson specialising in earthquake engineering.... think again!

Technically I am still doing that, but rest assured I spend every free minute fixing things up around our home, creating art, painting walls, rearranging and DIYing.
To the point that I haven't shared everything here on the blog yet.
Let's start today with a little art update!

See that super-colour fragilistic painting over the chair?

If you follow me on Instagram, (you really should :) you might have seen my process.
Which isn't really a process but more of a subconscious session of colour-sloshing...

I realised that our living room is super bottom-heavy.
Pear-shaped, if you will.
Most of the elements are situated at ground level, and there is a lack of anything on the walls higher up.

That big empty space over the couch is next...

Some more rearranging is happening here by the front door where I've hung these 2 framed photographs.

And as you can see, the chair has been sold (we are just waiting for it to be picked up) which leaves us with a bit of an empty spot. We're not in a rush to fill it, but I'm excited about the colour possibilities of something new (and more comfortable for tallll people like us!).

Who loves a splash of colour on the wall??
