Hanging Around

When it comes to frames, I know a lot of people swear by Ikea's Ribba line. Not me. I am a big fan of West Elm's frames — in part because they come with templates which make them a cinch to hang. This weekend, for example, I finally got around to dealing with this wall in our master bath:

I feel like I should add a disclaimer to all of my blog posts apologizing for my bad photography skills!

The frames are the 13" square Gallery in silver, which has sort of an antiqued finish to it so it's not too shiny. I replaced the linen mats — they're really nice, but just don't work in my bathroom — with white mats with a thin black border (purchased on Picture Frames). As for the art: I selected some of my favorite postcards in the set of 100 that Ruben Toledo created for Louis Vuitton. (Jon gave me the box of City Guide postcards for Christmas.)
