something for the walls

i have a confession to make. at the moment, every single wall in our house is bare. seriously. this fall we finished giving each room a fresh coat of paint and now we’re either too scared or too indecisive to pound the first nail. my goal for this spring is to buy a few inexpensive framed prints or photos to make our home more homey. here are some of my current favorites around the web: (1) marco suarez, coast, $60; (2) carly waito, amethyst IV, $1000 (a splurge, but i couldn’t resist); (3) studio kmo, paris map print, $35; (4) stymie, a shifted alphabet, $45; (5) debbie carlos, hand cloud poster, $50; (6) amanda kavanagh, blue wave print, $30; (7) lydia bassis, wtr #22 print, $30; (8) nama rococo, random geometry wallpaper sheet, $126 (i don't remember where i saw this idea, but i love it); (9) ikea ribba frame for a favorite polaroid, $10; (10) s and s, lava dome print, $25

  3. I say you get 'em all and hang them on your wall, exactly as you've displayed them here!

  4. What if you did a gallery wall of maps of places the two of you have lived? Would tell a rad story.

  6. Beautiful roundup...I am so indecisive about hanging stuff too. Unfortunately I often change my mind and we're always refilling nail holes!

  7. You should buy all of these. And hang them exactly how you have here.

    Beautiful! And I know about the indecisiveness of hanging stuff but you just have to go for it!

  8. looks like you have a pretty sweet list going already and just need to pull the trigger. i'm a big fan of debbie carlos and the print by marco suarez. honestly, trying pieces in different places in your house is just part of the process.

    here are a few other suggestions...
