cut up

Recently, I came across this Brooklyn artist, Mia Pearlman. Her beautiful installation work transforms any space into a foreign land. Made out of cut paper, you can imagine the insane amount of time she has to spend on each piece. The negative space and organic shapes her pieces create imitates sea life or lace.

Her piece reminded me of Ashleigh and I's apartment back in Columbus! We easily transformed our drab living room into a space of creativity and beauty.

So many of the finds in our apartment came from local flea markets and thrift stores...more photos to show off in the future!

Ashleigh happened on how to make this flowerlike shapes (tutorial link & photos below) from the web, but we added our own touch by creating the large shape as a whole and also expanding them onto the ceiling. Help from our lovely friends was obviously necessarily :) as we nailed and tacked them to the wall. Some of them are attached by string while others are attached on their own.

Many a photo shoot has happened in front of them ... this from my 20th birthday with my love :)

The following photos are taken from the lovely blog, MADE. A tutorial on how to make them can be found there. She also used a variety of different colors to spice up the look. Ashleigh and I are partial neutrals, so we kept ours all white...but look at how great the following photos look!
