That has been on our to-do list since as long ago as when Tyler was born! In our little Brixton flat when Tyler was a baby, we had sooooo many photos, we couldn’t decide which ones to print. Fast forward 3 years to us living in our new-build apartment, where we’ve been living a year and a half and there are plain white walls galore. I think it really is time to choose what photos to print out!
I’ll show you what is on the walls so far. This is the first photo we had up in our Brixton flat. As soon as I saw the photo, I just knew it had to be on our wall. I remember that moment so clearly, as we walked out of the registry office when we had just got married, I looked at my husband smiling, thinking I can’t believe we did finally it, we’re married! I ordered the canvas from Canvasdesign, it was £30 for a 16″ x 20″ canvas plus £9 p&p (back in 2010). I have put this canvas on the wall in the hallway which is in between the two bedrooms and the kitchen/living room, basically you see it as you enter the flat and when you are going from room to room – so all the time!
This piece of art is from A Great Little Place, which I bought when we first moved into our new apartment in 2014. As we had left London, this was a reminder of our life before and all the lovely places in the city in an awesome typographic design. We love it! It’s in our bedroom and I love looking at it, seeing the places I took Tyler to when he was a baby. The print was about £20, and the frame I got from Ikea. The frame is really thin and light, with a clear plastic front rather than glass – which is great for the lightweight walls you get in new-build apartments.
This is something I painted for my husband when we first dated over a decade ago, I think it was for his birthday or Valentines Day. It’s been in his old bedroom in his mum’s house all this time. He decided he wanted it in our home, so we brought it with us and I recently framed it in an Ikea frame in our bedroom.
Now for the new bits. I bought this frame last month from B&M for £9.99. I love the simplicity of the black frame and think it looks good against white walls. I’m thinking to print our seaside holiday photos, as I think it would be nice when lying in bed to be reminded of the seaside.
And I also bought a wood colour multi-aperture frame from B&M for £8.99, which I think I’ll put in Tyler’s room, but I’ll still not sure which photos to put in. Decisions!
And the ‘family’ frame is one I upcycled last year but forgot about, so need to put some family photos in there. And maybe swap the photos over when the new baby comes 🙂
So now you’re up-to-date with my walls! I’ll update you when I’ve chosen the photos.
What do you put on your walls? Do let me know in the comments or on Facebook, I need some more inspiration!
