I'm hoping you can help me with a little decorating question.
I am not much of a decorator. In fact, this move was the first time that I have put curtains up in my house. Ever. I love my blue curtains and the way they blow in the evening breeze, but my house is still a little bare.
Hannah says not to think of it as bare, but as having clean lines.
I like that, but we have one gigantic wall that I would like to put a picture or two on, and I was thinking you might be able to help me make a decision.
Option #1 is to wait until we have family photos taken at the beach and make up a family collage on that wall. I love the Galleries done by Lisa Russo, but the problem I see is that i hate to have to straigten a lot of different picture frames.
Option #2 is a large map of the world. Kind of antique like. I've been wanting to do this for a while, but I'm not sure. The furniture in this room is dark. Dark brown leather sofa and love seat, dark walnut 100 year old piano, and dark tv hutch. I especially like the blue in the map. I think it would be nice with my blue curtains, blue patterned pillows and blue vases. But I'm worried that with all the other grown up furniture, the map will seem a bit stuffy.
Option #3 is 2 or 3 vintage Hawaiian Travel posters. I love these, as you might be able to tell from my blog, and I think we could have fun with them here. But maybe they are too silly, and would I really want them when we move in a couple years?
Option #4 - ???
I'm also searching for some patio furniture....
