Maija Lourkari for Marimekko

I don’t know exactly how Sarah came by this Marimekko print, or even where it may hang in her house these days. I have a feeling it might be in DC’s bedroom. Here it is taking center stage in her bedroom about 3 homes ago.

I have long admired it. So I set to DIY my own to fill up a blank wall with LARGE art in the Heffe House. Sarah, do you mind if I jack your steelo?

Mine is pretty simple – it’s a shower curtain that I stretched over some canvas stretcher bars from Blick Art Supply.

In hindsight, I might have lined it, but all in all, I’m happy with it. It was a super inexpensive way to get some large impact art on our walls!

The final product landed as part of a cluttered vignette, atop the piano. Since I’m now striving to declutter, I’ve moved the piece into the den where the scale matches the room. I think it’ll live here as we work to improve the overall design of the home.
