I'm on a purging/organizing kick. It's been exciting to streamline the household and make "stations" for each activity. The next necessary step was adding artwork, I can't thrive without it! Other than local art, my favorite thing to frame and display are pages from book and magazines.
I immediately swooped in on this issue of Hi Fructose at the flea market featuring one of my favorite artists, Junko Mizuno. Her weird, dark style is perfect for adding art to the kitchen, bedroom, and office area with their bright colors, intricate graphic design, and food and crafting themes- what's not to love?!
Next I frame them in matching frames. It would fun to make a Junko gallery wall , but I need these pieces to add color throughout the house.
Three are now living in the kitchen. One by the new "blending station." I love the artichokes and bunnies in this piece, gorgeous!
The next two add color and life to the "tea station," I love the piece with the girl and the blender, so kitchen appropriate.
Next my office area got some love, I adore how the muted colors in the two Junko knitting pieces match my Cuttlefish anatomy poster.
Any finally two pieces are perfectly at home in my bedroom. I thought these were perfect to hang above the dresser with their feminine themes.
Ah, it's the little details that make a house a home. If there's any blank corners in your home that need warming up, look to the thrifts for old magazines and books for art to fill the walls. I love displaying unconventional masterpieces and thrifted objects in my home.
What do you like to frame and/or display on the walls? It feels good to change things up for the new year. Look out for some home organization posts next week!
