"You are a king by your own fireside as much as any monarch in this throne" – Miguel De Cervantes
So our clients are really into the British grafitti artist Banksy and all of his work. When having our first consultation with them, they discussed how they would love to incorporate his artwork into their home. One of their favorite pieces is the “Girl with the Red Balloon” which is a stencil of a young girl reaching out for her heart shaped red balloon as it drifts off into the distance. We loved the romantic feel of this art so we suggested to our clients to have a life size decal created of this piece.
Now to find the perfect spot in their house to apply it. Well, as we found out, between the first and second floors, there is a nice landing with a large window that lets in a lot of natural light. As you can see, the decal looks outstanding applied to the wall under the window, becoming a major focal point when walking up the stairs. We also added to accessories to this area to create interest to the otherwise boring landing. Keeping with the red and heart theme, we found a cute silver tea light holder that is heart shaped and paired it with a vintage 1948 red Coleman lantern we found while thrifting. To balance the decal, on the other side of the bench we placed some beautiful large candle lanterns which finishes off the look.
We heart our banksy balloon girl landing… Tell us what you think…
