When we moved in to our house, we were coming from a two bedroom apartment. We didn't have a ton of furniture, decorative items, and wall art. I'm still trying to figure out what to do about this wall in our living room. There's a nail already there left behind from the previous owners, just waiting for us to hang something.
I've thought about doing a gallery wall, hanging a pretty mirror, or finding a cool piece of art work. Yesterday I was at World Market and saw this beautiful canvas.
What do you think? I'm really torn. For sure I would get rid of our toss pillows (I hate them anyway) and get a brighter, not-as-busy pattern. I love the gold painted birds, something about it speaks to me.
I've started ordering some gallery-wrapped canvas prints, of all the important, special moments of our lives. This one is from Easy Canvas Prints and is one of my favorites from our maternity session. I loved ordering from Easy Canvas Prints, their website is very easy to use and I'm so happy with the result. The canvas is beautiful! If you'd like to purchase one of your own, Easy Canvas Prints is offering all This Woman Cooks! readers 50% all their canvas prints!
The other print is from our wedding day and I plan to order several more, along with photos from Miss A's newborn session and 1st birthday.
Eventually I'd like to have all these photos upstairs, on this large, empty wall we have in the hallway.
There's also the mantle to think about. We have a brown wooden mirror from our old apartment that could work above the mantle, but I'd have to get crafty and spray paint it black to match our mantle and other furniture.
Decorating a house isn't as easy as I thought it would be! So much time and effort to get it right. For now I'm focusing on creating our gallery wall and finishing up the living room. I'll be sure to share our progress as we go along.
