Our Life

trying to make the walls pretty!!

In the 7 years that Alex and I have been married, we have lived in 7 homes.  Ridiculous, right?!  We moved to our most recent residence in January of this year.  We moved for many reasons, but ultimately we needed some more space and really wanted to live a little closer to work and everything in our little town.  We love our new townhouse and it’s close proximity to almost everything.  In our minds, we intend to stay here for a while, but, given our track record, I wouldn’t put any money on it!

I really want to put some time into the way that we decorate and organize our space.  Right now we are getting by, but there is so much more that I would like to do.  Our first big project is putting something on the wall in the living room above the television area.  My goal is to have some canvas prints there that will showcase some of our favorite photos, but also add a creative, decorative element to the room.  So, of course, my first stop was Pinterest!  Here are some the ideas that I have stumbled on so far.

What do you think?  At this point I’m not even sure if I want to go with color or black & white photos.  We desperately need to make some decisions!  I really want to get these ordered so that we can make some progress!!

    I think I like the look of family photos more than just ones of the kids, and while I like B&W more than color, the color makes it feel more like a home. I’m in desperate need of a living room make over too!

    I’m having the same dilemma. We’re repainting our bedroom and the main room so all the pics and wall hangings are going – to be replaced with stuff I actually like. I wish canvas wasn’t so expensive b/c I think I want big photos in our room. I don’t know though!!!
