Case in point, our Breakfast Nook. Every morning over my coffee, yogurt and berries, I contemplate the bare wall opposite and wonder if I'll ever find something that makes me want to put a nail hole in it. I've been looking for something vintage and Paris-themed since we have a bit of a vintage French thing going on in the space. So far, I haven't found anything "just right."
But these Paris Travel Prints from Obvious State are quite charming. They may not be vintage, but they do have the classic travel poster vibe going on. Plus, Paris.
The Champagne/Eiffel Tower one is my favorite, but a grouping of all four could be just the thing for our blank slate of a wall.
Obvious State is the brainchild of Nicole and Evan Robinson -- you probably know Nicole's photography from her wonderful book Paris in Color. The two of them took their passion for Paris, language and literature and sparked a multi-disciplinary creative studio. Along with these lovely prints, their shop includes note cards, Paris Color Project photography, quote prints and these delightful Pocket Journals (The Hemingway is my favorite).
And if, like me, you are dying for a leisurely stroll through the streets of Paris but don't have a trip to The City of Light planned anytime soon, their Paris Journal is just the ticket. A virtual walk across the cobblestones of Montmartre via a digital book that combines photography and film, available for your iPad or iPhone.
Volume Two will be released next week. See a sneak peak here.
So...bare walls until you find the perfect work of art? Or are place holders just fine until something better comes along?
