A solution.

September 18, 2008

Okay. So our living room needs some help.

After reviewing everyone’s suggestions and brainstorming I came up with an idea that I’m super excited about. I want to get a large piece of wood – like 4 feet x 4 feet and wash it with white stain. I contacted one of my local printers about doing a large format print on top of it.

For just $8 a sq. ft. we could have something like this:

Or this:

(not necessarily this image – I just wanted to show that we could print a FULL image on the wood)

Or this:

I like the idea of having a black and white line drawing of furniture or something scientific. Like a vintage scientific drawing of a plant or skeleton.

Coming up with something to put on there is going to be like deciding on a tattoo. So many possibilities.

Rachel pointed out that we need something bold above the fireplace to help draw the eye up. I think something like this would work there. Or behind the TV.

And I think this space could use a full length leaning mirror. Or a huge starburst clock/mirror.
