Too Many Options

Since tomorrow is Valentine’s Day, and because I ordered something more special and up Jesse’s alley for his actual gift, I can show you guys the awesome prints I got for us. hanleiaprintsFor those that don’t know, these are silhouettes of Han Solo and Princess Leia from Star Wars. I purchased them from Reimagination Prints, the same Etsy shop where I got the Gone With the Wind print. The “I love you” and “I know” are classic lines from the Star Wars movie, The Empire Strikes Back. Jesse and I say this to each other all the time, so it’s super fitting especially for Valentine’s Day. But now, I cannot decide where to hang the prints! And of course where to hang them also dictates what color to paint the frames I bought during the Macklemore Thrift Shop Challenge. (Please excuse the mess in some of these pictures, just keepin’ it real.)

My first thought was the upstairs hall between the guest bath and office. artplacementI love that you’ll be able to see them as soon as you come in our front door. This hall will either be painted a bold color, like plum, or some sort of gray, so I’d do black or white frames with gold leaf corners.starwarsloveMy other thought was to hang them in our bedroom. They are cute and lovey, so they fit in. where to hang couples artI’d either paint the frames white and distress them, or do silver.couples art placementOr we could do between the living room and kitchen, which is a higher traffic area and I kinda want to show these prints off. Can you tell I’m in love? living room artI have a lot of color options here since this wall will remain white and is a transition from the living room to the kitchen. I’m thinking either black, red, navy or maybe a shade of coral. I want to keep it fairly gender neutral for Jesse’s sake 😉han&leiaMy final idea is in the kitchen. It is our most frequented room in the house, so it’s a good option for showing them off and getting to enjoy them every day. art placementI like this spot because you can see the prints in the mirror when walking towards the kitchen, which makes me smile.hanleiaprintBut my concern is that when/if I decide to hang some sort of art on the brick wall in the kitchen it will compete with the prints. This isn’t a big deal if I paint the frames a neutral color when the time comes, but I don’t know if I want to be limited.

All of this babbling to say, help me! Take the survey or let me know what you think. Jesse doesn’t really care about colors (but his vote is down stairs hall) and I just cannot decide in general!

Any fun new art going up in your houses? What about Valentine’s gifts?

  1. Adorable! I like them where they get to be kind of by themselves so they really get to shine. That way you really notice them and they stand out as something special. Good luck!

  2. Those prints are great! I like when the silhouettes are facing each other (versus one on top of the other), but I think they’ll look good anywhere you decide to put them!

  3. I think the frames would look awesome if they were painted a bold vibrant color. Such a thoughtful v-day gift.

  4. How cute are you and Jesse. I didn’t realize the silhouettes were of anyone significant. What a great story behind them. I bet they enjoyed the tour of your house they got, hanging in so many different rooms. I am sure where ever you put them, they’ll look great and bring a smile to your face.

  5. All I can say is don’t hide them in the bedroom. You gotta display your nerd colors somewhere everyone who comes into your house will see. I’m throwing my vote in for the kitchen, but I think the next best option would be the downstairs hall.

  6. How perfect for you guys! I voted downstairs hallway, but after I read what Kristen said about them facing each other I’m confused! Good luck deciding!!
