I really like #1 - I have a thing for circles to begin with, so maybe I'm biased. I think they not only compliment the floor, but your table as well.

Now if you had any other crazy furnature that's not in the picture, I'd go for something a little more understated. I've wanted to do something like that with my walls, but my landlord said no. So I bought those white pull blinds and I'm painting them. Shall we call it: removable window art?

number 3 is my choice.
every body likes number 1 but they ain't looking at the tile.  number 1 will clash with the tile.  less is more. circles and squares don't meet at edes.
plus with 3. you can add pictures between the red.

I like #4 and then #3.  4 lifts your view up and out, that's neat when it's near a window. Smiley

I wanted to thank you all for the suggestions about blik.  I just purchased 3 sets of the blik circles, although it looked kind of easy to make.  I was in Lowe's this weekend and saw a lot of vinyl squares in different colors that could probably be cut to make shapes to stick on the wall.  I was also thinking that some place there must be sold some cooler looking sheets of plastic or whatever that can be stuck on the wall.  However, they may not be as easy to remove as the blik stickers, so I was thinking about attaching them to posterboard or another type of medium that can be hung on the wall and easier to remove later if necessary.

SNOOPENDOUS: what were the things you saw in Lowes? i've been looking for inexpensive vinyl sheets to chop up into shapes to make bumper stickers and such. i'm tryuing to search around Lowes' website, but it's not really helping. thank you!

You can buy earthquake wax on the web from California...I use for everything!!  It holds all kinds of stuff up (even plates) and I use it to keep all of my pictures on my walls straight.

I dont know if this is exactly what you had in mind or not. My last apt was very retro and the den and dining area were connected and I did a Mondrian inspired wall on one side and in the dining area did those capsule shapes that were so popular back in the day. You cant see in the picture but they wrapped around on to the other walls.  Alas these pictures were taken as I was moving out and were about to be painted over.

If you are too poor for Blik (which rocks, but I certainly can't afford it), use contact paper!  Just cut out any shape you want, and stik on.  And it comes right off again for renters.

#1 is really striking, especially with the floor. i also like #3, but not as much as #1!
