Working from home has been a big change for us all, and many of us have been spending our weekends painting, putting up prints and DIYing. I’m no different and last week I updated our office with two gorgeous framed prints.
The main feature of our study space is, of course, our desk. It’s a space where I work, write and also read. When I saw these prints from The New Yorker by Fine Art America, I knew they’d be the perfect fit for the blank space on our wall. Like many keen readers, I’ve always been a fan of the iconic magazine and loved the idea of having memorable past covers on the wall. I chose two prints that featured cosy orange, brown and ochre.
The top print is from 1976 and features an outdoor book market by the artist Charles E Martin. I love the crisp autumn leaves and stacks upon stacks of books. The other print features my second love, music! It’s a more recent 2018 cover by the NY illustrator Jenny Kroik and I love the scene of this young woman browsing vinyls in a record store. Fine Art America have many retro and vintage prints so if you’re a fan of old magazine covers or London Underground posters then definitely check them out.
You can bring your prints to life with hundreds of different frame and matte combinations. My prints were delivered “ready to hang” with pre-attached hanging wire, mounting hooks and nails. That took a lot of fidelling out of the process for me which was great.
When we have guests stay over we have a sofa bed that they can stay on. To match the warm, autumnal print design I chose cushions in a burnt orange and embroidered green which brights a bright feel of the forest to the room.
Here you can see how the Framed Prints bring bright sophistication into the space. What vintage prints would you decorate your study with? Comment below to let me know.
