Art on My Walls { I heart art }

A year ago this wall in my kitchen had the yellow frame hanging with nothing. Just the frame, no glass, no chalkboard, nothing. It stayed that way for quite some time. I had a vision for the wall, but I wasn't quite sure how to make it happen. So, for pretty much a year I have been collecting prints and paintings from artists I admire (they aren't all displayed here, they will be on my other wall of art,
I'll show you that next November [wink]).

A week ago I hung the final print for this wall.
Also for the first time I hung artwork I created in my home.
It is complete, and I LOVE it.
I am calling it my inspiration wall (well one of them).
I spend about 70% of my day in my kitchen so it's fitting to have all this inspiring work hung there. It is also the first thing you see when you walk in the back door where most people enter our home. I think it's a good first impression.

inspire and motivate."

  1. oh friend, i can't tell you how much i love this! the colors, patterns, eclectic mix of loveliness... it's perfect. :) i majorly heart walls of art like this!

  2. pretty, pretty! I love inspiration/gallery walls. :)

  3. It is a whole wall of wonderful. I love how you have it in a more nontraditional location (as in not a bedroom or livingroom) and I love the prints you have collected! Thanks for sharing.

  4. love it! lucky you to have this displayed in your kitchen! so fun to look at!!!!!! honored to be on your "inspiration wall". and right back atcha - i've got your "do good" print in my art studio. and i LOVE IT - the colors, the quote, the artist! xo

  5. Congratulations on your bright, uplifting inspiration wall! Your post is motivating me to work on my own. I've been eyeing a blank wall adjacent to our kitchen for months, contemplating a similar project unfolding (prints I've purchased from fellow Etsians are waiting patiently to be framed & displayed!), but I haven't started taking any action. Perhaps a Christmas "gift" for our family will be to complete that wall?! Thanks for the motivation!

  6. Wonderful! Your kitchen looks like THE place to be! Funny, I just posted my new art wall this morning too, that I FINALLY got around to doing (too)! (We've got some similar tastes!) good job!

  7. love it! i have a collage wall in in my house...true story. :)

  8. Love love LOVE this and am so happy to be responsible for one of those pieces. You've inspired me to get going on the display I'm working on in my office/studio! <3

  9. Lindsay! What a gift to be a part of what inspires you everyday :) Once we get settled into a space of our own, I am going to make my way to your shop so I can have a piece of your beautiful art to inspire me! I heart your wall SO much! So bright and lovely! xo
