Art makes everything better!

I am currently all jittery and skittery with excitement because today I ordered two new pieces of art for my house.

I admit, I’m pretty much obsessed with hanging beautiful things on my walls. It’s one of the best ways out there to add color and personality to your space — especially if you can’t paint. At least I’m lucky and my walls are a nice plain white which provides a good canvas for lots of cool artwork.

As much as I love getting my hands on free or really inexpensive art (and it can be done — I’ll have to blog about that sometime), sometimes you find something for sale that you LOVE and you know will make you smile every time you look at it.

That’s how I feel about the fun, quirky posters at Pop Chart Labs. No I’m not making any money by advertising for them in this post! :-) I just love their stuff. I’ve been ogling their coffee print for a few months, and I just bought it to hang in my guestroom / study room.

They also just came out with this new kitchen tools print, which I immediately fell in love with.

I’m going to put it up in my kitchen above the sink, where I really wish there was a window but instead there’s just a boring wall. This piece is huge — 2 by 3 feet, so it will fill up almost the whole wall (!). It will be fun looking at the cute graphics and details while washing dishes … a whole lot more fun than wall-gazing, that’s for sure.

I’m going to pick up some poster frames at Michael’s (they were 40% off when I checked yesterday) so I can frame and hang these babies the instant they arrive.

So – what’s your favorite piece of art in your home?

    Love the coffee poster! One of my favs is a big canvas with coffee cups. I love it but it doesn’t really go with the colors I want to do in the house. I’m trying to figure out how to make it work when I redo the kitchen.
