Last week I saw this garland on West Elm's website and it got me thinking -- why should garland be used only on trees?
Some garlands are so pretty, they could be used as wall decor, draping some behind a couch or a collection of garland behind (or in place of) a headboard.
And then I saw this one and got an idea.
Imagine a whole ceiling draped with this. Wouldn't that be perfect for a nursery? Much has been written about Jenna Lyons' son's nursery with it's yellow and white striped ceiling and I think the same idea applies here. Babies spend the first few months of their life lying on their back. Why not give them something fun to look at one the ceiling? The circle graphics of these garlands are nice but the best part of having them draped across the ceiling would be the movement. Imagine how pretty it would be when the window is open and a gentle wind is blowing! I would do gray walls and lots of lots of these pink and gray garlands across the ceiling in a baby girl's room. There are tons of other color options available on Etsy, too (some favorites are here and here).
