Art is going to be a big thing in our new home, but it has to be a gradual integration, you know, because art can be expensive in general, and then sometimes even more expensive to frame; we’re talking art collection, ya hear, a slowly curated little collection of prints and paintings and custom pieces that we can call our own for longer than just a short trend. We’ve set out to allow art to be one of the main sources of color, and it’ll definitely begin to provide some needed visual interest. Blank walls don’t make a home feel homey, friend, so bringing some life to them is one of our highest missions. (And it doesn’t feel right to say “new home” anymore, we’ve lived here for almost 10 months, so today’s the last time I’ll call it that, write that down, Emily, settle in.)
The print above, still unframed with no permanent spot in our home, was something I purchased from Fab.com sometime around the holidays – actually, at the same time that I purchased the deer umbrella holder you saw in this post. The battery in the Canon bit the dust just as I prepared to photograph it for real, iPhone to the rescue. Those little flowers, they’re paper, and you can see how to make them yourself in this DIY Network post because, hello springtime (not).
The Pixies concert poster reproduction by Kii Arens is a colorful presentation of one of Pete’s favorite bands, and then too, a subtle nod to the Frank Black and Pixies posters that flanked the bed in our old home.
