Gallery walls and prints for my flat were something I thought a lot about before I moved in. I didn’t want to just throw something on the wall that came from an affordable art fair. I wanted prints and art work that had meaning, either to myself or to someone else (i.e. weird little vintage pieces from charity shops etc.) and that I will hopefully not get bored of any time soon.
The gallery wall in my living room is a collection of presents from friends, prints by friends, and Deptford market finds. I like that they are mostly black and white but with the odd splash of colour thrown in. I’m thinking I want to potentially cover the whole wall but I just don’t know if I’ll ever find the right prints to do so.
The print that hangs above my bed is by a friend from work. I had him print it A1 for me on some lovely matte paper and then I framed it myself. I love how it contrasts with the softer feminine colours in my bedroom. My boyfriend’s comment when he saw it however was ‘you know it’s blurry right’. Gee thanks.
This little number that I’ve stuck to the side of my wardrobe is a new find from Hattie Maud. I’ve been following Hattie on Instragram for a while now and have become obsessed with her illustrations, which can be found in print and on greeting cards and candles. Loving how well it goes with the pink of my wardrobe!
I am always on the hunt for more prints so would love some ideas from people. I am also happy to send you in the right direction of some excellent photographers and artists.
