Wes looked around the living room the other day and said, "you know, I think this one's about finished." And he's right. We've furnished it, painted it, hung curtains, put down a rug, and I'm always adding and taking away accessories here and there, just because it's fun.
The only thing left on my "list" is to hang something above the sofa. We bought a set of four (reproduction) architecture prints on our honeymoon in Charleston and they need to be framed. But how?! I'm not usually at a loss, but framing brings me totally to my knees. For one thing, it's super expensive! But even if I could afford it, I don't think I could decide how to frame them.
I love the frames in this room by Martha Stewart (via Style Court, who happens to be writing a series on framing). I suspect they are antiques, and I'm certainly not holding out for four identical frames in the size we need. Where does one find new frames that look like this? Not at Hobby Lobby, I've discovered. Man, do they have some big frames.
The framed prints in this room (featured in Cottage Living) caught my eye. Wes really likes these so-called floating frames, and though I've always been lukewarm about them, I like the scale of these. OR should I break up the set of four, and do a gallery-style grouping? Oh me, decisions, decisions.
Now it's your turn. Where do you get things framed? What kind of frames to you like? What would you do with our architecture prints Help!
