I recently purchased a book called Creative Walls by Geraldine James. I am finally going to have a room of my own-my own creative space. Yes, I can hear Virginia Woolf cheering me on. In this book there are walls decorated with drift wood, purses, you name it. Geraldine James started her career as a buyer for Harrods. She now works at Selfridges-as a home buying manager. She is passionate about collecting unusual things and decorating her home.
"My passion has always been creating beauty from nothing."
"To produce any art you have to be prepared to expose yourself to judgment, to opinion, to, dare I say it, the whims of fashion. "
She invites you to imagine your walls as a blank canvas and create a special altar of your things. It can be a mood board, a memory, a creation of an imagined vacation, nature collected and gathered and more. Here are some of her unique collections beautifully arranged.
You may use her photos- but please credit her work or use your own wall to collect your thoughts and arrange your poem. If you would prefer a different photo- visit here for more images of her work.
