I remember when I was little, we got the keys to our new apartment and my parents, who always had fun party ideas, decided to throw a house warming party before the jobs start. It was a very RAW-theme party. I can still recall the party ‘decor’… raw gray walls, cement floors, different mismatched chairs and armchairs, colorful balloons and a lot of crayons and markers. What for? The main idea of the party was to color our “new world” ! It was so much fun, not only for the kids… Everyone would contribute with drawing something or writing something on the walls. Few weeks after the party, the walls got covered with the wallpapers but the secret messages stayed underneath forever.
See, that’s not for everyone, and I’m having some doubts if I would find the courage… But if you like this idea as much as I do, there are two ways to go – the brave one and the let’s say… less brave one.
Option no. 1 – WRITE!
Just take a marker and go for it – write, draw, go crazy! Do you have any favorite quotes?
Option no. 2 – Erasable / removable writing
If you are not so brave but you don’t want to miss out on the writing and drawing fun, you can always attach post it notes to your walls or get an erasable board.
In both cases, our own handwriting gets on the walls. Now the question would be how brave are we? I guess I could start with the second option and see how comfortable I feel surrounded by my own hand-writing. Yeah, it might feel weird. Or maybe not? What do you think?
