Hot N Cold Art

After taking a little summer break, I am back into the swing of blogging!

As I was perusing the aisles of Michael’s a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon these cute prints that are perfect artwork for any bathroom:

I framed them using inexpensive silver frames from Target (I think the frames were $14.99 each). I chose these frames because they already came with mats – it looks like custom framing without the price and hassle.

I hung them side by side in the basement bathroom which is mainly used by overnight guests:

My philosophy on art is that it doesn’t have to be expensive or original to have a high impact in your home. Of course, if collecting art is a passion or hobby, fill your boots. For the majority who can’t (or don’t want to) afford the high price tag that comes with collecting unique and original pieces of art, get creative! All sorts of objects and prints can be used as art as long as you find a frame to fit – I have been known to frame napkins, sparkly earrings, and calendars!

As always, thanks for reading!

    When designing a bathroom, I get my main inspiration from my customer and there requirements. sometime a get more of a free run with things and I get inspiration for the colours of the bathroom from Art around the customers home. But I had never though of turning my bathrooms into art.
    In this post there is a great idea of some bathroom inspired art that the writer had purchased and hung in their bathroom. I had never though of something like this, but now i think about it, why not! why couldn’t you do this.
    Think about it, each item in yout batjhroom, your taps, bath, shower etc have had years of design and development and many taps and brassware are little functional art sculptures of there own. It only make sence that a artistic photograph of your bathroom would make art!

    What do you think??
