What Houzz contributors are saying:
Postcards and photos. Turn old postcards or black and white family photographs into art. Here, six postcards depicting life on the coast as it was way back when are displayed in matching black frames.Tip: When creating an art series, tie it all together with frames and matting that are the same size or color.Sketch out a grid on the wall making sure the positioning of each frame lines up for a clean, finished product.
"Vintage postcards from your local community are a great way to add artwork to your home," Motschenbacher says. The framed works over the commode are vintage postcards of Balboa Island and Newport Beach. She had her framer add old-fashioned black photo corners as a fun detail.
Incorporating decor from local shops makes a space feel rooted and grounded in its locale. Vintage signs and framed photos of life on the coast makes any space feel casual and unpretentious.
