But it's been missing . . . something.
I firmly believe that every space needs art (even if it's a DIY project or framed scrapbook paper). I was confident that the right piece would make the room work, but I tried in vain to find it (first we hung a DIY painting, then a photo I took).
I am happy to report, though, that I am now madly in love with the kitchen and finally found unique art that stitches together every aspect of this room:
I originally planned to hang the girl with the parcels separately, but an outlet foiled my plans. We had totally forgotten an outlet was hiding behind the art that was in the kitchen. Unless we wanted it smack in the middle of the posters, we would have had to hang them thisclosetogether.
We finally decided to hang all three on one wall. The middle one covers the outlet, so we were able to space them how we liked. They are all slightly different in size, so we put the largest one in the middle and lined up the tops, which was Hubby's genius suggestion. They really really fill up the wall, adding a lot of visual interest to the kitchen. The 1960s aesthetic is a perfect fit! The textiles represented in the posters look fabulous with the houndstooth and herringbone, and the brown in the tweed suit makes the wood cabinetry look intentional.
I am planning a few new accessories, like a new kettle (ours broke) and linens, so I'll take photos of the whole kitchen soon, but I couldn't wait to show you the new art!
P.S. Want to know what they say? When Hungarian is translated verbatim, it sounds like Yoda talking so perfect translation is no easy feat. Here are my super rough translations:
