Today, let’s talk about art. Mostly because Josh won’t talk to me about it any more. We are so stumped on what art to hang on our living room wall. Abstract? Watercolor? An illustration? Photography? Oh gosh, and don’t get me started on wreaths or antlers.
Okay, so here is what we’re looking at so far. The living room is the first room you walk into, so I want the room to look pretty clean. As you can see below, we don’t have a lot of color in here yet. Thinking we’ll add some deep blues to balance everything out. So what we’re looking for is something to place over the fire place. It’s a white brick fireplace, but ends at the mantel, not straight to the ceiling.
Okay, so here are a few pieces I’m looking at.
Of course I through Brit Bass in the mix. Gosh, she is so darn talented and right in my backyard. Honestly, I’m pretty sold on her work, but Josh isn’t crazy about abstract in this space. I don’t think he’s crazy about abstract anywhere…
We actually both agree on how awesome this Moby Dick painting is. Don’t you? But is it too dark for this space? I can’t decide.
Here is where I need your advice. What art should we put above our fireplace? Any of the above? Something I’m not thinking of? Should we go simple and do the antlers route? Switch it up with a mini gallery wall to combine a few elements?
