Before and After Geometric Hexagon Wall

Before and After Geometric Hexagon Wall

before room

So today is the day we have been waiting for with great anticipation for weeks.

We’ve been sitting on the edge of our seat and talking about it and rolling our eyes and crossing our fingers and toes and wondering when it would finally get here and what we should do to get ready.

We even had a count down.

T minus 45 hours and 16 minutes.

You’re probably thinking it’s this before and after room makeover.  And while the room looks amazing and I can’t even believe it turned out like it did and the geometric hexagon wall that we created from scratch takes my breath away.  But that’s so not even what I’m talking about.

We have been waiting for something even better.

The season premiere of Fuller House.

I know, right?

DJ, Stephanie, Kimmy and Uncle Jesse are in the house.

Literally. 🙂

Iron Spheres

More on Fuller House opinions and discussion later.

For today, let’s talk room makeovers.

About six weeks ago I got an e-mail in my inbox asking me if I could create a room for FrogTape to use in their marketing and advertising.

It had to be bold and full of color and the centerpiece of the room had to be some kind of overall patterned wall design where you thought outside of the box and came up with something amazing.

If you have read this blog for more than five minutes, you know I love a challenge.

Almost better than broccoli.

before room

I wanted to give you a sneak peak before it was published, so this is the room I started with.

White walls painted SW Alabaster (my favorite white paint color).

Simple, plain, basic, builder grade room.

And now?

Hold onto your horses.

Geometric Hexagon Room after

It’s a honeycomb room.

And it all started with that wall.

That glorious, wonderful ombre hexagon wall with gray and white and pops of orange.

I’m going to do a DIY on how we did it later.

Hexagon Wood Shelves

But why just stop at an ombre wall with painted hexagons?

Don’t pause there when you could have wood hexagon shelving?

We even painted the inside of the hexagons the same color as the hexagon they were hanging on.

And then I added one simple statement piece in each of the shelves.

I added a geometric-shaped asterisk and an hour glass and here’s a geometric shaped apple.

I love the contrast of the apple against the gray.

Against the back of the wall, I placed mid-century modern sideboard painted white.

And topped it with white curved lamps with chevron-patterned shades.

The curved lines of the lamp look so Jetson against the painted wall.

Wire Sculpture

The centerpiece on the table started with a large white vase covered in ceramic leaves.

Then I added geometric wire and wood branches that I spray painted to look like metal.

I fluffed all the branches and let them spill out over the table.

Here’s one more look at the space before I go.

I’ll be back with how-to’s and geometric print wall tape-offs and wood shelf DIY’s.

But in the meantime?

I have a show to watch. 🙂

  20. HI KariAnne,
    You never cease to amaze me! If anyone can think outside the box…YOU can! What an exciting and colorful room…but I’m trying to think where this room might be…is it one of the rooms in your office space, down at the end of your driveway? Do you have a room that you just “do” and “redo?”
    It’s very bright and colorful and I bet wherever it is, it gets lots of comments…”good ones!”
    Blessings, Jeanne

  25. That is an amazing wall, Karianne…so fun, and I can just imagine it used with family photos…each section is like a frame!

  26. This is awesome! So, how was the tape? Did the paint run under the tape? Does the wall have to be super smooth for it to work? I am so curious about it…

  27. Kari Anne it’s GORGEOUS!!! I love the colors, the pattern…..every detail!

  47. Kari, this truly shows your talent as a designer. While the room clearly wouldn’t fit in your own home, you’ve created a fun, colorful, playful space that is perfect for someone else! I love the calm Blue’s and White’s of my own home but can truly appreciate this room in all of its creative wonderfulness!!
