I'm thinking...

So I am working on a little project in the apt, and I can't decide what to do! For our wedding, the hubs and I received from some dear friends a set of lithographs of Naples, Italy. They live in Italy and when I was studying abroad we stayed with them in their GORGEOUS penthouse. Anyhow, I am framing the set and hanging them in our little hallway off the front entryway. The walls are boring boring boring beige but I don't want to paint as we might be moving soon! So I thought this might be a fun way to bring some life to the wall.

What I can't decide is if I should hang them in a grid or a random pattern. And I stuck the pictures up their with just some painters tape, I have yet to put them in their frames!
Here is the grid pattern... this is from the front entry

(sorry I was sitting on our bar taking this picture so you can see the countertop in the picture.)

and I like this arrangement, but then I think I might like a more random arrangement, a la Pure Style Home.

Lauren is one of my favorite designers, she is so inspirational!

from here

So here is the random...and to make it fill up the wall more, I might add some prints I just have laying around the house.

So any thoughts??


  1. i think if you do the random, you need it to be a little more, well random. like, maybe some more space between some of them. and then you can fill in with some other prints you have. :)

  2. "Random" is definitely the way to go...add a few vertical prints of your own to break up the layout. The frames themselves will take up additional space, so don't think you need to add too many more prints to fill the wall. Thinking of you guys.

  3. Please elaborate on "we might be moving soon"??? :)

  4. We might buy a house! We would have to break our lease but we could get the tax credit, so we are trying to decide! we need to catch up, i miss you!

  5. I know you posted this a while back, so is it too late for me to comment? :-/
    I would agree with Mom (Dianna), that random is best, but you should add some vertical rectangles to break up the horizontal ones. Or use some other shape, if possible.
