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. For 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. I 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.My other thought was to hang them in our bedroom. They are cute and lovey, so they fit in. I’d either paint the frames white and distress them, or do silver.Or 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? I 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 😉My 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. I like this spot because you can see the prints in the mirror when walking towards the kitchen, which makes me smile.But 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?
