Prints. On a Wall. My Wall.

I instagrammed (wait, that’s a verb now?!) a photo of my living room the other night, and a few of you were interested in seeing the prints behind our sofa. We recently painted the walls gray (they used to be this icky harvest gold color), and it looks so much better. The power of a few cans of paint is not to be underestimated.

    Looks great, I love the whole room. Very high ceilings! Will paint the hallway grey, and add some vintage wallpaper which I think will look v v cool.

    OMG… it’s gorgeous, Nichole! Lord have mercy, I’m gonna have to clean up big time if you were to ever come to my place. How ’bout we just meet at your place and I’ll just bake something for you? Deal? ;)

    I love this room…The colors, the windows, the furniture. Grey is everywhere and I am definitely enjoying it! I haven’t taken the leap and painted with it yet.

    Hi Nichole,

    I just got my set of these beautiful Paris in Color — black photographs today and am dying to put them up. But the readymade frames I am finding in my local (big) photography store are mostly dark colors, with not very much matting inside. My bedroom has a lot of espresso colored furniture in it so I want to lighten the tone somewhat. Do you have a recommendation for where to buy the lovely white frames you’ve used?

    Many thanks
    Jay

    I agree with you on the Instagram phenomenon! Haha. Did you take all of the photos on your wall? If so, they’re all so beautiful. You’re a great photographer regardless. :)
