It was love at first sight. Swoon.
Along with some of the living room changes I really felt like the art in the kitchen needed to be updated as well, but I spent a pretty penny on my beloved Rex Ray print so I wasn't sure what to do, and since I wanted something just as bold and dramatic I also knew that it would most likely not be in the budget for quite some time.
Our Rex Ray print hanging on the kitchen wall, which is also our dining room/foyer, it's San Francisco people space is limited so rooms are multifunctional;)
One more time, this is our before....
When I spotted the gorgeous canvas in the same exact dimensions at an unbelievable price I had to have it, thankfully Mr. Jones felt the same way so we snatched it up and we were off!
Literally we were off... as in we walked this beauty home. It's 54"x54" the last time we transported art this big we had to get a U-Haul.
Luckily we live about 10 min from downtown, and it's unusually flat for SF!
Mr. Jones was even sweet enough to get it up on the wall the very next day.
And here is the after my friends.... isn't she lovely.
I love how fresh and crisp it feels and I like how the white background ties in nicely with the stools and other white accents we have right now. This might sound strange but if I had to paint cooking/food/wine/entertaining and conversation I think this is how it would look, it even inspires me to be in the kitchen! Spoken like a true art critic I'm sure ;)
Now.... where to store that other giant print? Hmmm next on the agenda.
Happy almost Friday friends, hope you too have been inspired this week!
