Artful Additions

Recently, I made two very exciting additions to the gallery wall in the living room. First, the Roll & Tumble Press “You Are Here” print that Aaron got me for Valentine’s Day:

And second, another print that Christie of Roll & Tumble gave me as a birthday present:

How great are those? I’m so in love I sprung for custom framing (which is kind of a racket, btw). I’m trying really hard to pretend like the lack of symmetry on my gallery wall doesn’t make me want to cry every time I see it. For whatever reason, I need that sweet sweet symmetry. But I keep telling myself it’s only temporary, and the more art I add, the less strange it will seem.

I still have two prints to frame, and I’m constantly on the search for new art to add. Currently, I’m crushing on a few pieces from 20×200:

One of Christian Chaize’s fab beach photographs.

I love Valerie Roybal‘s abstract collages.

Lauren Dicioccio assigns a color to each letter of the alphabet and then uses dots of color to recreate pages from magazines. This is the List of Contributors page from a 2010 issue of Vogue. So cool!

    I almost got the “You Are Here” print for Jordan for Valentine’s Day. I love it, and probably will end up getting it after all. I’m loving that wall!

    Lookin’ good! LOVE their prints! Next on my list is this classic one that I’ve seen everywhere, but I think it’ll be a nice addition to our “office,” once we get around to cleaning the “junk room” and making it into our shared office space. xo.
