Indigo - New Year, New Colour


 
Interior Design,Home Improvement,Humor
We have previously looked at the colour emerald and the potential dangers in using it as a decorative theme in the home. A lack of appropriate care can result in avoidable injury when interior designing. Another new interior design colour being touted as this year’s ‘must-have’ is indigo. I will demonstrate here how indigo was introduced into my home safely and through the medium of the ever popular self-adhesive vinyl wall sticker.

My first thought was to apply a group of wall sticker trees to my living room wall and have some dark blue birds flitting among them as colourful highlights. As a result of my experiences with emerald green I first removed all the furniture from the house, invested in a number of high-jump mats and built up the floor of my living room using foam covered pallets. I applied the stickers from the ceiling down by gradually removing one pallet at a time so at no point was I forced to stoop or stretch. I was able to safely complete the design in well under three weeks.

Buoyed by my success I turned my attention to a small patch of wall on the half landing which had so far resisted all attempts at improving. I seized upon a wall sticker design featuring an indigo bird cage and set about turning my dream into reality. The lack of space meant that it would not be possible to employ crash mats and the like so I was forced to improvise. Some kind of safety harness was clearly in order so I fixed a large metal anchor plate to the wall and attached myself to it using full giant redwood climbing rig. Feeling a little foolish in my harness I put on a fencing mask and some steel working gloves and felt much better. After what seemed no time at all but was in reality some months, the sticker was stuck and it was merely a case of removing the anchor, re-plastering, re-painting and making good. Total cost? Just one thousand, eight hundred pounds.

By now, although my wife had left, I was really getting into the swing of things and began thinking outside the box. I thought how nice it would be to have a flock of indigo birds flying across the kitchen actually stuck to all the cupboard doors! A kitchen is naturally a very hazardous place so great care was obviously needed if I was going to realise this interior dream without coming a very nasty cropper. Taking no chances I turned off the gas, water and electricity as far from the house as I could manage and wrapped every appliance in eighteen layers of bubble wrap. Next, I bought a genuine Apollo mission space suit from the estate of Buzz Aldrin at my local off licence. I filled the suit about my person with more bubble wrap and when I recovered from the heat stroke I set about applying the stickers.

This last adventure may have set me back close on three million pounds and I may have been advised by several utilities to “keep your hands to yourself, you idiot” and I may even change the kitchen itself before too long but one cannot deny the fact that I have blue self-adhesive wall stickers in my home and they look fantastic. I am also and most importantly, completely unscathed. Thank you.
