updating the walls


I have been working on updating some of the prints in our house and it’s been so much harder then I thought it would be. Not for a lack of art but because there are so many amazing artists out there. As I keep searching, I thought I would share a few of my top contenders.

1. Compass – There’s something about a good arrow print. This would be so strong in my living room.

2. Seattle Space Needle Flare – Gotta’ rep the home town!

3. Family Canvas –  I love that this is totally customizable.

4.You’re The Best And The Mostest – Just too good for a kids room.

5.For Like Ever – I know this print is everywhere but for good reason. This would kill in our bedroom.

6. Stay Humble St – Once we have a desk area, this is the first thing going up.

7.Tapestry 5 – Something about this just calls to me. If only that rug were real.

There are just so many good options! My first priority is a fairly large print in my living room but I haven’t committed to a color scheme. Here’s to a lazy weekend with time to make decisions!

Washi Tape 2

As the house starts to come together, I’m finally getting a few things on the walls. I am so.tired. of buying frames so in M’s room, I went for taping prints to the wall. I kind of love the way it turned out and thought I would share in case anyone else is looking for some frame-spiration (see what I did there?).

It’s so easy.

1. Tape one style of washi around the outside of the print to hold it in place. Overlap corners and leave a few strips longer then others.

2. Use a different style tape to angle and highlight at the corners.

I chose a really simple frame type but there are so many ways you could hang prints with washi. I pinned a few ideas if you are in the market for something a little crazier.
