your beautiful library design. I was wondering if you could tell me how you created the print. I have been wanting to create something similar with a painting by Vermeer. Is this a giant canvas or a mural? Thanks
Fabulous library, thank you for sharing. Please let us know, if possible, who is this print of, as we finally agree with our teenager, on an appropriate wall decor.
