Art Wall

In our last apartment one of our favorite features was our art wall.IMG_3522

In our new apartment we’re slowly deciding where each of the prints of pieces we’ve acquired should land, but we’ll have more of a gallery effect than our previous residence.

Which prints have we acquired (because let’s face it, as much as we’d like to be Herb and Dorthy, we’re not there yet, so we only have simple reproductions)?
