Dress The Walls


Back in October, I did a quick lil' post about our current living room. As the photos show, I still hadn't found any art to place above the couch. Since that has now changed, I figured it was time for an update:
I wanted a modern feel mixed with some of my mainstays such as the "frontier" vibe I like. After lots of scouring at Society6, I came up with these three to fill the blank space.

I really liked the overall look of the "UGH" sign - the light grey, the faint pink and the neon sign vibes. However, the more I looked at it, I felt like it was a statement on life. How often do I say some version of "ugh" about a misfortune in life? Quite a bit. I'm tired every Monday morning, ugh. I don't have as much free time as I'd like, ugh. It's raining and I can't find my umbrella, ugh. Life is full of little "ughs". Instead of basking in that vibe, lighten up your ugh. It's really not as bad as you think it is. 


The pink sunset reminded me of the views in Oregon when driving out in the wilderness early in the morning or late at night, when the sky is decadent against the tree-lined peaks. And my little bison is just the most beautiful dude that I ever did see. I thought the pink in the UGH meshed well with the pink in the sunset picture. And the sunset picture worked well with the bison image for their outdoor vibe. So that's how I tie all three together.

Overall, I'm really happy with the way it looks. What I like in my house kind of ebbs and flows year over year but for now - these will suit me just fine.

Love the pictures you chose!!! I love the little pop of color they provide, but are clean lined and go really well in your space. I am still in love with your round table!!!

I love all of the pictures that you picked and the reason why you picked them as well! It's crazy how much a piece of art can truly transform a room and give it a whole new vibe!

I'm absolutely obsessed with the UGH sign. Although I think this is a bad sign, ugh has become my go-to word.
