I feel like such a grown up now. When asked what kind of gift I want for my birthday, Christmas, Mother’s Day…I’ve evolved from the typical clothes/beauty products (although, don’t get me wrong – I still love that, too!) to home decor pieces! It’s such a fun part of owning your own home, however it is pricey and a little overwhelming when you have a whole house to decorate.
Kyle and I had to prioritize furniture before accessories with our house, and we still have some big purchases to make: the dining room, basement, & outdoor deck still need to get done.
So for Mother’s Day this year, Kyle surprised me (yes, it was truly a surprise) and got me my first Gray Malin print! He got me a North Ave Beach print from Chicago, a city we lived in for almost 2 years, and absolutely love. It always amazed me how Chicago could have such a beautiful, legit “beach” on a lake in the Northern part of the US! And while I don’t remember it ever being THIS pretty, it will always be one of my favorite places to visit and I can’t wait until Aidan is old enough to go & enjoy!
My “dream” is to get art prints of all the beaches we visit that Gray Malin shoots, with Rio de Jainero high on my list (this one or this one). Can I say that looking at these photos also makes me want to VISIT more beaches??? I’m envisioning trips to Capri or Maroubra Bay in my future….
Now, I just need to find the perfect matted frame & decide where it should go in the house! I have my eyes set on two options: the dining room or living room! Stay tuned to see where this ends up 🙂
