See this blank wall?
It is the first thing you see when you walk into our house.
An abrupt cut-off, an unwelcoming standoffish entry.
And then you have to make a decision to turn right or left. If you go right you end up in the a hallway to the study and kitchen. If you go left you still go down a short hallway to end up in the living room and then the kitchen too. Remember my inherent dislike for left turns? I like the living room but generally still get there through study-kitchen-living room route.
A blank wall is an easy fix, and no, I don’t intend to knock down the wall, but as soon as you put something on it- voile, it is no longer blank.
It will also be the very first thing people see when they enter. An introduction to us and an invitation to you to please come in; we are not all that scary and hopefully neither are you.
I liked this frame, and I’ve always loved this print, but it wasn’t quite right.
So what to put there? I enjoyed spending a bit of time on Etsy trying to image what would fill the void.
Then I unpacked this print, an earlier Etsy treasure, and of course it is perfect.
It has been waiting for a home to call its own, it has been longing to welcome family home, it has been yearning for a blank wall.
This blank wall.
Which is no longer so.
Welcome, please come in and make yourselves comfortable.
