Condo Guest Bedroom

A Gift To Me For My Office

The first purchase has been made for my office design, and it’s a gift from my sweet hubby.  Now I know you’d probably expect the first purchase to be paint, or fabric, or possibly the materials to construct the cabinets.

But you’d be wrong.  Have I ever been that practical?  Not hardly.

Nope, the first purchase for my office is this set of eight fine art photography prints from Bomobob, who is probably my favorite fine art photographer.  (No, I’m not getting paid for this post, and I’m not being given free loot to promote his work.  I just genuinely love it.)

Aren’t those amazing?!  I love the bokeh effect on these, and the colors are absolutely stunning.  They almost look like watercolor paintings.  And as usual, the description has the word “nursery” in it.  Why is it that all of the bright, colorful things that I like are intended for kids’ rooms?  Can’t adults like bright, colorful, fun things as well?!

Anyway, want to see what I almost went with?  You’re going to think I’ve lost my mind, and perhaps I have, but just imagine these framed with large white gallery matts and white frames, hung on a black wall.

These are from photographer Julie PecencoAren’t those hilarious?!  I love the colors (of course), but I also love the whimsy.  I don’t think interiors and artwork need to always be so serious (lol…I guess that’s pretty obvious also).

But in the end, I decided against these for a couple of reasons.  I didn’t know if I wanted to be reminded of Easter every time I look at my framed artwork (kind of like having a framed picture of a candy cane on your wall all year).  But also, I couldn’t figure out how/where to purchase these!

Note to professional fine art photographers…if you truly want to sell your stuff, don’t make people jump through a hundred hoops to figure out how to buy them!!  Make your websites simple and straightforward!

So, I went with my tried and true favorite, and I’m glad I did.  I’ve been admiring Bomobob’s photography for quite some time now, and I’m glad to finally have my very own on its way to me now.

Now I just need to get those walls painted so I’ll have a place to hang these when they arrive!

    Those are amazing… And I could see the peeps pics too but for 24/7/365 the Bomobob pics are a better choice.

    Your husband has a nice taste Kristy. You just gave me an idea. I have a home-office and I'm going to redesign it this coming summer. I was thinking of painting its walls (in white), designing it with wallpapers, and accessorizing it with some office decors. I was hesitant coz it will cost me much.

    Your fine art photography print idea is more practical. I'll just have to search the Internet for some excellent photos.
