Decision: Shiny Things

I had an "Aha!" moment today. Metalic gold. On my walls.  I had planned on cutting a stencil and doing something oversized... not sure what, maybe hexagons or something a bit more organic. Originally I was just going to paint my walls white, but I have been dying to do something more. 
Then it hit me. Gold. It would also glam up and add sparkle to this dark north facing room. 

So here is my inspiration.  I'm thinking a gold paint pen and something like this design...

Be back in about a month with the finale, in the mean time here some blinging walls...


 I love this one from Miss Print...
and my all time fave goldie from O & L...

Thanks for all your well wishes. My back is still aching, but I can now get up out of bed by myself and walk around. And I am walking like a 75 year old as opposed to a 105 year old. Progress.

Also, I have to shout out to my girl Linds over at Everything LEB for making my day with her O'verlays makeover.  Have ya seen it? I love her use of gold handles on the sides!
Go see the transformation here!

ha! Been thinking of metallic gold paint for the two half walls where I REALLY want metallic gold grasscloth. Just straight up, solid wall of gold. Stolen from Emily Henderson. Yours will be SO much cooler--can't wait to see!

I have been thinking about metallic silver or pewter for dining room stencils. I like the wall in the second pic.

Here in Dubai, I'm bombarded with all things gold and glittery. I don't think I could bring myself around to including it in my own home. Maybe a tiny gold accent?

Gold walls sounds delish! I love that idea, now hurry up and do it so I can doodle all over my apartment walls too :)

I love the picture with the birds on the branch! So pretty! Me and my husband just finished cutting branches off our trees! Now I have something to use them on! Maybe if I paint the branch gold, it will make it look fancier.

I'm a big fan! Mwaaah!
