I tried it on the entry wall. And it looked odd and not at all inspiring. I immediately took it down and didn't even bother to snap a picture.
Then, I tried to include it in the initial stages of my gallery wall. And while it did add that extra touch of non-art that every gallery wall needs, I couldn't find a layout that really worked with it. The layout below was the closest I found to a happy path with Mr. Berkus's turtle and it just wasn't happening for me.
Fast-forward one year to today. I stubbed my toe on the turtle box again and I hauled it out, determined to find a home for it. I finally landed in the loo-dark navy walls and white lacquer just seemed to be fated.
Now he's a happy shell. And truly, every time I'm in the loo now I get a ridiculous smile on my face.
