I've been trying to decide what to do about artwork for my bathroom now that I have it repainted. I have come up with two ideas, and I would like some feedback from my readers. I value your input (although I reserve the right to do whatever I want ;P).
First, I have several Ansel Adams poster prints that I had hanging in my last house. They are from the Mural Project and are beautiful black and white prints. I just never felt like I had the right place for them once I moved to the Shack...the house seemed to be taking me in a different direction. They are currently in black plastic frames, but I would most likely reframe them in some nice black wooden frames. I'll just have to dig them out of storage. Here is one of my favorites:
My second idea is to start collecting old photos of people and their cars, and make a collage on one of the walls of these pictures. Once again, I would frame the pictures in black frames. I find several of these type of photos on etsy.
Here's are a couple of examples:
So, I'm torn. I love these old photos and the cars (and even the long forgotten people), but I also love the beautiful works of Ansel Adams. One more thing I'll keep in mind - I already have the Ansel Adams prints, I would need to purchase the vintage photos. Those photos just seem so much more personal!
