We Can't Decide...Can You?

5.28.2009

We've lived in our town house for over a year and so far, haven't done anything with this wall in the kitchen:



So we've been thinking, thinking, thinking and have narrowed in down to three (um...pretty great) options. We can't decide, so I'm calling on all of you to weigh in. Seriously. Even if you weigh in anonymously, I'm really interested in all of your opinions. Because that's the way we roll around here.

Alright, option number 1:
This set of four prints by the immensely talented Blanca Gomez. They are 8.5"x11" and I'd probably hang them in a row.



Option number two:
We already have the polar bear print by Jay Ryan, and could add to the collection with one or both of these. They are 20"x26".




Option number 3:
We could purchase these old movie posters which were designed by my all time favorite graphic designer, Saul Bass. It'd be one of the only ways to have some of his work displayed in our house. They'd be the standard poster size, 24"x36".




So there you have it. Thoughts?

I vote for option number 1. I absolutely adore Blanca Gomez and I would be more than a little jealous to see her work hanging on your wall.

Number 3- I don't have any design wisdom other than I like how it looks. It's cool... :)

Absolutely voting for no. 1...unless of course you would use it in the munchkins room and then my vote is rolls totally to no. 2.

I love, love, love the first prints by Blanca Gomez. So sweet! That's my vote!

I'm going to be the odd one out here and say option number 2. I like the colours, much more subtle than number 1 and 3...and I love the polar bear you've purchased previously. That's just my thoughts though! :)

I like the colors in Blanca Gomez. (I always like bright color.)

But it would be nice to get the Jay Ryan prints so the polar bear wouldn't be lonely.

OK, my vote is for Jay Ryan with Gomez in a tight 2nd.

I veto the movie posters.

But that's just me. You can do whatever you guys like! After all, it's your space.

Hi Tracy!

I love the blanca gomez prints, but must pick #3 because:

1. saul bass kicks @$$!!!
2. i like the large scale of the posters in relation to the size of the room. i haven't visited in a while (cough) but it might be nice to have some huge frames in there.

I've been a long admirer of Blanca Gomez's work - so option #1 definitely caught my eye first. But I like #2 also because they're poster-sized.. which I think would look nice on a big wall like that. So for the art - I like #1, but for the size/proportions - I like #2. :)

Thanks for the input everyone! I LOVE it!

It looks like Blanca Gomez is solidly in first place...and I was really starting to lean that way, but I'm back to liking the argument of having something bigger on that wall. Which, in fact, is one of Herman and my original arguments for the Saul Bass posters.

sigh.

I have some (birthday) money just waiting to be spent...
