When I was shopping for art for the room my girls share here at the brownstone, I knew I wanted something feminine, but modern. And I wanted it BIG! Something to work with this vintage french poster from their last room.
Art.com has a ton of Warhol prints, several from his Flower series. I thought this color way would be perfect on the pale lilac walls. And the black background helps keep things from going too sweet.
Then I used their “View In Room” program to see the actual scale of this huge print.
I uploaded a couple photos of different walls in the room, which ended up being really helpful, because it looked horrible in the first place I had in mind. I loved how it looked next to the windows where I planned to put the play table.
The other cool part of the View In Room program is you can do multiple prints on one wall (in your saved gallery, use their room photos, or upload your own like I did). It’s a SUPER easy way to map out a gallery wall! The hardest part is figuring out your favorite prints – there are so many good ones to choose from. You can see my saved galleries here
. (And I just noticed they are having a 20% off sale this weekend! Awesome – I’ve been saving a special print in my cart.)
Here’s the Warhol print hanging in the girls’ room. It feels so bright and happy in there! They love it.
PS The frame truly looks like something I would have paid $500 for here in Manhattan. Want to know what it cost to frame this 40×40″ piece? Just $150 – a complete steal for something this large. You can tell the work was done by craftsmen
(I sort of choke up in their videos! This one
is awesome too. Man, art is so cool.)
