When we moved into our house, it was new construction.  A clean slate.

Sounds fun, right?

Well, it was!

And I’d do it again, but I must admit all of those years of art school that Daddy went to didn’t always pay off (read: I am WAY better at picking wall color!).  The one thing that Daddy says over and over again when considering wall decor is “When you think it’s too big, it’s perfect”.

And he is right.

Think about it … most art you hang on the wall you will walk by without even noticing in about a week.  But, when you hang something up that looks just a touch too big, in about a week you will love it just the way it is!

Back to the wall color – same thing applies.  Those who know me know my walls are saturated in color.  Not because we are covering anything up, but because we love it, and still get tons of compliments on it when we have new guests.  So don’t be afraid – go for the color, then go for some big beautiful prints!

Check out what Amy of Amy Ro photography had to say about all of this, and then let me know what you think!

Don’t forget after you are done reading her post to  come back and order all of the extra large prints that you’ve been considering.  I promise, you won’t regret it!
