home tour {caitlin wilson design}

Happy Tuesday, friends! I’ve got the loveliest of homes to share with you all, designed by the uber-talented Caitlin Wilson. This Philadelphia home is infused with happy color, charming pattern, and is playful yet refined. I especially love the touches of gold, the wood/white contrast and the office (that wallpaper)! Enjoy!

my source for inexpensive large prints {and our photo wall}

living room decor 600x399 my source for inexpensive large prints {and our photo wall}

About 2 years ago, I shared this same corner of our living room. I scored the 14×14 frames from ebay, and used colored mats (to make the photos pop) and black and white photos. A week ago or so, I realized I needed to update this wall (my sweet 16 month old was nowhere to be found on it-sad!), and I was tired of the colored mats and wanted to go with something more neutral.

So, what’s my source for large, super-cheap prints? Staples! I got these 10×10 images (printed on 11×17 cardstock) for less than 50 cents each. Done! Color prints are a bit more expensive, at about $2 a piece. Now, realize this is NOT photo paper and Staples is not a photo printer. The quality is slightly less impressive than other large prints I’ve had made, but I also saved more than $25 having it done this way, so I’m more than thrilled with how they came out.

Note: I cropped and resized my images in photoshop first, to get them to the 10×10 size I wanted. I then asked Staples to print them onto 11×17 cardstock and I cut them down myself (they have a cutting fee if you want them to do it). Here are the prints before I cut them down to size.

The mats are nothing more than poster board cut down to size (the poster board was more expensive than the prints!).

Cut out your poster board mat, use double sided tape to tape down your picture, and you’re done!

I love little tricks like this…it allows me to change up my decor more than I otherwise would be able to do. What are your tips/tricks for getting great deals on home decor projects? Would love to know!
