SilvanArrow:  Well, I’m NO help! Lol! My preference is: industrial chic, mid century modern, modern, and anything around the date our house was built: 1941. I haven’t put anything on the walls yet because I’m afraid of them! They’re plaster so I’m still trying to figure out how to hang stuff without ruining the wall. I like numbers and letters. I want to get both our initials and put them above our nightstands possibly. I actually bought a similar arrow and it has 510 on it, our wedding date. I also want something representative of the town we live in. A painting of an historical building where we were married etc.

If I did nature like you, I’d be more apt to frame some botanical prints or maybe photos very close up of flowers – love that graphic look!

SilvanArrow:  Do you like to travel? My husband and I like to buy art when we are traveling. That way, we can fill up our home with meaningful things that remind us of our vacations. Its a slow process, but we love it! I highly recommend getting things professionally framed as well – you can customize it exactly how you want and it looks so much better than doing it yourself. Its pricey, but we only do it for our favorite art pieces.

Also, I am an amateur photographer, so I also have some metal prints (unframed, floating wall hangings) I made of some of my favorite pics.

I really like floating shelves to add some visual interest too. These are from PB, but I have similar ones at my house. Same with the mirror – I loved it so much at PB that I bought it and put it in a very similar setup in my place.

RedHeadKel:  I love your style! We’re in an older house with plaster walls as well (1910). We we’re able to find studs in a few places and put in anchors in a few spots. 

 

SilvanArrow:  we like big vibrant pieces. This is our bedroom:

FreshBakedPi:  Yes, I remember some pix you posted of some industrial chic finds!! Loved em! And I could totally do something big and bold like you did. Did you use a stud finder? And do you mean you put those mollies in just the plaster, not a stud? I’d be so afraid of that. I really need to bite the bullet and put some stuff up. And if I mess up the wall, I’ll just hire a guy to fix it for me. Haha!

RedHeadKel:  I used a dry wall screw into the studs. It didn’t hurt that the painting was so large… it made it pretty easy. Levelled everything etc. I used a stud finder yes.
