Decorating with vintage prints, pretty calendars from years before, old appointment books –here are some DIY ideas to transform your child’s rooms or even your sitting room. Add depth, character & a sense of originality with eclectic selections.
Salon style hanging of reproductions, good quality laser prints, e-bay or thrift store finds, pages from old discarded kids’ books, and creative commons images licensed for non commercial use are some of the many sources for eclectic curation.
Your frames can be different materials and shapes as well for a true salon style arrangement.
For kids’ rooms, think about adding reverse glass paintings, framed old sewing patterns, hand drawn prints of old advertisements, and antique nursery decor items.
Combining children’s artwork, with historic art, folk art and modern pieces can work beautifully.
This painting rather makes me rethink on the dingy strange mid century style things I walked by at thrift stores….
