This week we finally took care of the sad bare wall above our bed.
About a year ago we were making progress on our master bedroom redo, and it included some pretty sweet hexagonal art.
Even though we loved those mirrors, it wasn’t enough to keep them on the wall, and they fell, one by one. After six months we just decided to take the rest down, and for the next 6 months it remained bare up there.
The journey to some new wall art started when we were looking around a new store that just opened near our house called, at home (BTW, this place is awesome and it has all kinds of house stuff at incredibly affordable prices). John and I spotted these big frames for only $20 a piece, and knew they were coming home with us.
We wanted to select just the right thing to hang above us while we slept. It needed to be something personal and calming. So we decided to frame 2 of our favorite photos that we took on our west coast trip a few months ago.
The first photo we selected was taken at Baker Beach in San Francisco.
We love that the photo captures the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and an eager seagull, but we also really love how serene it feels.
The second photo we selected was taken while we were roadtripping from the beautiful Crater Lake to the Coast.
This photo is a beautiful shot of the open road in the mountains of Oregon. It was so remote out there, and there was no one for miles. John actually stopped the car in the middle of the road and I popped out of the sunroof of our rental car to take this.
What we really liked about displaying these together is how the shape of the mountains mimic the shape of the bridge in the first image. It makes them different enough to stand out from one another, but similar enough to work as a pair.
Now that the frames how been up for a few days and we have been able to see them in all kinds of light, we are really digging them. Maybe even more than the hex mirrors we loved so much.
