Room for everything...more or less

Recently, I remembered that as a kid, I thought the coolest thing would be to have the post office building for my house.  It had two or three floors, with countless rooms.  The reason I wanted it was so that I could have a room for every activity I loved.  Along with the usual kitchen and living room, it would have a room for rollerskating (or maybe that was what the hallways would be used for), one for dance, one for art, one for sewing, one to curl up and read, and I don't know what all else.

All these years later, I have my beautiful Belle Ami, who is much prettier than that post office building, if not quite so big.  Not quite enough room for rollerskating, but I do have an art room, a cozy front parlor for reading, a second art room that's mostly for sewing, and a dance room.  Well, I did have a dance room.  Apparently now, all rooms in my home are art rooms (sigh)...

With both art rooms full of projects for the next issue of 365 Being (365being.com), I've resorted to doing my paint work anywhere it will fit.  Backdrops for the photographer across the street are being painted in my workout/dance space.  Guess I really didn't have time to tap this week anyway.

Here's what's on the other side of that canvas.  I really like this trowelled and stencilled finish.  Kind of tempted to do it in a different colorway on the dance room walls.
All kinds of creative ideas for the rooms in your house can be seen in my portfolio at theartofthehome.com.  If you want your photos taken in front of these backdrops, you'll want to check in with Toni at front porch photography (frontporchphotos.com).  However big or small your home is, may it be filled with fun!
