It’s difficult when we haven’t finished the living room, but are trying to get cracking with the kitchen as we’re under a bit of pressure as they’ve delivered the oven yesterday and are trying to deliver the units in two weeks. We still have ideas that we’re working on in the meantime for the living room, but they’re having to go on the back burner for a little while.
One idea we had was of having lots of photos across the green wall in the living room, under the spotlights. We liked the thought of having loads of images of friends and family, although I initially thought more order would be better. I’ve since been convinced that orientation and size doesn’t matter. I will put my foot down and say I want all the same frames though, to stop it looking too unruly. White wooden ones!
This idea then developed into a black and white theme. As white wood complements our new décor, I started thinking about how the photos would look inside the frames. I’ve spent my lunchtimes at work using Illustrator to turn colour images greyscale and I now have 37 to print! The selection may require some editing down and we’d need to decide which ones we wanted larger than others.
I didn’t want to put someone’s image up without asking, so this is one of me taken in the Maldives on our honeymoon five years ago. Not all of them are quite as artsy, but it gives you a feel for how it will look.
If anyone has any suggestions where one may procure dozens of reasonable wall frames, ranging from A4 down to standard photo sizes, please let me know! I’m willing to paint them, but I would like them all to look the same style.
