decor dilemma: wall art




When I have time off from school I tend to get a little antsy. I always need to have a project or two going to keep me entertained. A conversation with my friend Rachael got me thinking about picture frames and art work... Kiwi and I have been trying to figure out what to hang over our bed for months now. What's your vote... frame wall, chalkboard canvases or mirror wall? Maybe a combination of all three? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

*I know people talk about "nesting" after you get married... but I've always been a sucker for a good home project.

  2. I like the chalkboard. The art changes, and it's a great way to leave "sweet nothings" for your sweetie because they always mean so much more than nothing.

  3. the first one would be perfect! i have a chalkboard wall in my house but wouldn't do it over the bed...just b/c it's messy. :)

  4. frame wall! They're so fun, and always evolving.

  5. i'm in a chalkboard phase right now, so i'm a little biased. but otherwise, a frame wall always works. you might get sick of the mirrors, and depending on the kind of light you have, there might be some bad glare.

  6. You could definitely do a combo of all three. I love a scattering of random hodge podge.

  7. Yeah, fit it all in, woman! I've got a frame wall over mine and I loooove it. I think that a chalkboard is more of a kitchen thang. If I could, I would put mirrors (or just one big mirror) on the ceiling. Kinkyyyy.

    But that's just how I roll.

  9. oh i love all these images!!!! the chalkboard headboard was a GENIUS idea (but of course, it's meg's!) and i seriously have a thing for mirrors...

    when it comes to placing art however, i just hammer and see... not very smart, agreed :)

  11. Wonderful ideas. We're currently trying to find something to fit over our bed, too. I'm humming and hawing over artwork but I really love the chalkboard canvas. Let us know when you decide.
