The other day, while stashing some art away (I rotate things quite a bit), I couldn't stop myself from putting a few holes in the wall and hanging fresh art for us to enjoy. Technically, these two abstract canvases aren't mine to keep. After all, they are still for sale in our Etsy shop, but I couldn't not hang them up on our bare hallway walls and enjoy them until they find a new home. They make a pretty handsome pair side by side.
Diagonally from my Ikat-inspired abstracts I hung a small print my sister gave me for her wedding. It is of the Pittsburgh skyline where I and my whole family grew up. I love it. I love it because it is a piece of Pittsburgh and my sister and lastly, because it is small.
I don't have a lot of small art hanging on the walls. I gravitate toward really big pieces, but this one--perfectly situated on a pint-sized wall--makes our home feel more...homey. Like, "I didn't forget about you little, skinny wall. Here's a piece of art just for you."
Which is probably making our bedroom wonder if we forgot about it. We finally hung some white curtains in our bedroom, but I still haven't found the right art for above the bed (or a colorful throw for the foot).
I fell hard for these six moon photogravure prints from Restoration Hardware. How perfect would a pair look above our bed?
$800 good? For two?! Nah. Maybe I could draw up something similar to this putting our initials into the original design, framed above the bed.
