This is a fantasy room I made for our Heard Museum exhibit. I wanted to create a colorful, yet relaxing spot to chill. To create this wall effect, I first painted the room in a bright teal, and then bright red about 3/4ths down. Next, I lined the bottom of the walls with handmade wrapping paper from India (purchased at IKEA). I then added painted swirls with flat, metallic and then with glittered paint. I added a variety of sizes of mini-mirrors all around the red area to pull it all together.
