Welcome to Maya!

Greetings from Cincinnati! We live in a swank, huge loft in Over-the-Rhine, but our bedroom is a small, awkward space with a fairly high ceiling. We struggled with the space above the bed: we wanted something large on the wall that would brighten up the room and make good use of the ceiling height...

I'd like to share with you and your readers our quick and simple decorating solution, using colored drawing paper and double-stick tape. It's sort of an hommage to Gee's Bend; we call it paper quilting [like paper architecture]. We don't know how well it will hold up over time, but we're really happy after spending $12 and putting in a few hours of work.

Take care,
Maya
