ORC- Week 4 Choosing Art

I’m back to talk about choosing art for Jane’s room!

One of the biggest problems with Jane’s room is the tiny size.  I couldn’t fit a twin bed so I decided to go with a toddler bed:

I love the Jenny Lind toddler bed from Land of Nod.  I decided to push it against the far wall where the crib used to be.  One thing I started to worry about was that it would feel really low.  A bed is usually a great place to draw the eye to in a space.  You pile it with pretty pillows and put some art above it and bam you have a statement! I started to worry that this smaller bed would get lost in the room.  So I tried to think of ways to make it feel higher and bigger.  One idea I’ve had is to push it against the wall and a put the pillows against the wall to make it feel like a daybed.  I also want to put a BIG piece of art above it so that it will draw your eye up.  
I went though multiple ideas. 

I finally decided on the “Hello Cocky” print from minted in the 44 x 60 size. I liked how the coral balanced out all the teal.   I picked it up from the framer this week! 
Jett named him “clucky”.

I also picked out some other prints for other walls in the room.

Stay tuned each week as I transform her room! Here are all the participants so you can follow along with everyone:

    I love the idea of a bigger piece of statement art, what is an approximate cost to getting a 40×60 piece of art framed?

      That's a great question! This one cost me about $350 and that was with the cheapest frame.

    Probably a dumb question; but what program do you use on your Mac to created the collage boards?

    • Kirsten Krason Thursday, April 23, 2015 at 5:14 am #

      Not dumb at all! I use photoshop.

    I love the print! It is such a great scale for this room. Perfect pop of color.

    You have picked some great pieces for the room. That print is so fun. And i'm loving shape of the mirror. You've incorporated a lot of fun elements.
