la la love it

I recently moved to a new apartment to be closer to work (5 minute commute-woo hoo!) and I am in the never ending process of decorating my space. Last night my new roomie and I finally hung my collection of vintage "art" and prints from etsy in the den. I have been jonesing for a gallery wall for some time and I am quite pleased with how it turned out. I have one more etsy print to frame and hang above the large circle of trees, and it will be complete.

(picture to come, as soon as I take it)

We have the rest of the apartment organized and decorated (with the exception of my closet-THAT is a never ending process) and so the time has come to tackle my bedroom. I saved a few special treasures and some personal photos for the walls in the bedroom but there is still a ton of white space. Let me back track here and explain the sitch. I moved from a one bedroom, approximately 750sf space to a large two bedroom apt with 12ft ceilings. My new bedroom is several feet long and wider than my old one. So, infinite more square footage+freakishly high ceilings=bajillions of miles of white walls. Needless to say, I have a large blank canvas to work with. What to do, what to do? I have fairly eclectic taste, so I perused my usual daily blog reads for ideas and came up with quite a few that I love. (A pola gallery of kissing pictures! A strip of patterned wallpaper behind the bed! A mishmash of different sized letters spelling out favorite words!) Then I turned to my most favorite of favorites, etsy. Here are a few of my favorite things:

You Deserve Pie poster from etsy seller Tealtown. Because, frankly, don't we all deserve pie? And I la la love me some letterpress.

Wilco handlebar stache poster from pfahlert. One of the greatest bands of all time and one of the most epic staches of all time.

Handprinted botanical using three colors from nateduval. Just so, so pretty.

This iconic poster from, among others, 10thavenue, BluLima and sfgirlbybay.

And these three from SparklePower. I ended up la la loving the last one the most, so it's on it's way to me now! Hooray! I love you etsy.
