Ok this was my first venture into Interior Design and I loved it. As I have now moved house I have a whole new blank canvass to play with as the boyfriend has left it all Magnolia (as he found it when he moved in) Grin

All the mural was hand-painted by me in silver, which doesn't really show up well given the lighting conditions.

The entire room took me around a week to complete from scratch and I was really pleased with the result!

Anyway here's the pics, sorry about the quality it was a really dodgy digicam:

Main over-the-bed-head mural (around 4' diameter)

Simple silver framed art-cards and Excalibur (I collect swords) as it has a celtic style quillion

These words are also in silver and painted in an awkward place (over a radiator but in a small alcove) just to fill the space and because they look pretty in the bedroom

I will probably post more photos of more rooms as I intend to decorate the flat this summer (possibly. cash permitting) and fist on the list is the kitchen then the bathroom. They are both small-ish rooms but will take the most ingenuity to design...

Anyway I hope you like  Cool

I really like the cluster of words.  That style of design is just so fun.

Eco-friendly items, patterns, hippies, and more.

I'm on Ravelry, too!

Beautiful work! And nice to see someone using celtic patterns in decorating.

PS- I believe I have the same Excalibur sword! Only mine hangs horizontally over the pocket door in my living room.

Oh that is beautiful! I espically love all the words written on the wall. WHere did you get the font for "sleep"?

Dragon eyes, and fairy wings, please god let me see strange things.

Hi all...

Yep, hand painted and to be honest I didn't know I had it in me lol!

I can't remember off hand what fonts for the lettering now it was a random one I thought looked nice.

I'm currently sorting through the fonts on my PC at the moment (all 4GiG of them) so if I come across them I'll post and let you know Cheesy

I love Celtic culture and specifically the knots and artwork (I have Scottish roots) and had never seen anything themed with knot-work and figured I'd give it a try.

I suffered terribly from insomnia while I lived at that house and I figured the relaxing words on the wall would somehow subliminally tell my brain that when I was in that room I was there to sleep Cheesy

I love the painting over your headboard. Did you make a stencil first?
