A Different Point of View - My Home


The other day I was laying on the kitchen floor painting base trim.  I hate painting trim, which is why, after living in the house 2-1/2 years, it's still not done.  Anyway, I happened to look up and loved this view and how well the artwork in the kitchen coordinated with the piece we have in the 2nd floor stairwell.


I've been meaning to post a photo of this print for a while now.  This is actually an infrared photo that a family friend took (and edited) in downtown Baltimore.  I loved it the minute I saw it, and begged him to share the file with me so I could print it.  I was able to print the high-res version as a 12"x36" poster (waited for a half off poster printing sale at Staples and got a killer deal), and then we had a custom frame made.  It's one of my favorite pieces in our home.  I keep telling him he should start an etsy shop with all the great photos he's taken...


The image to the left is this "Saarinen + Poulson" print from Blue Ant Studio.  (If you love mid-century chairs, check out the other prints - I had a hard time picking which one I wanted!)
