I picked up this classical architectural print at a local antique store but can't decide if I like it. The shopkeeper knows me and let me bring it home on approval.
The wall above the bed has needed something for a while. I'm not crazy about my Mission-style bed frame, but it won't be changed any time soon. In the meantime, I like the way the columns in the print reference the lines of the bed.
Excuse the unstyled bed...I grabbed this shot when the light was nice and then noticed everything was rumpled! Not much of a stylist, am I?!
Of course I would hang the print just slightly above the bed frame and the print needs a new mat. My only hesitation is the yellow tone of the print which is accented by a yellow mat. I think if I reframe it with a grayer inner mat and fresh white outer mat, it will look lovely.
I am still on the fence as I was planning to buy a black and white architectural print for this space. But the price is right on this and I love the image, so it just might stay. It came out of an old hotel, so has some charming history too.
What think ye?
